Bundled with Univa Grid Engine software, Univa's powerful and highly
scalable solution collects current and historical data on jobs,
applications, container images, users, GPUs, software licenses and
hosts. Unisight is used to generate and share reports that provide
unmatched visibility into overall performance, efficiency and actual use
of cluster resources.
Unisight v4.1 key new features include the functionality to combine
multiple data attributes on a single graph, and collect data from any
