OMEGAMON II’s EPILOG historical component consists of three operating components: the collector, the reporter, and the maintenance utilities. You use the collector and the reporter to access and report systems data, and the utilities to periodically maintain the EPILOG datastore (EDS). Figure 1 shows how these elements fit into the overall EPILOG product.
