MATtool in Action
NOTE: The Mattool roll for Rocks is available from here.
Before downloading check that MATtool is available
for your operating systems:
Solaris 5.6 or higher (SPARC)
Solaris 5.7 of higher (Intel)
HPUX 10.20, 11
IRIX 6.2 or higher
Windows 95, NT, 2000 (for the Console only)
The machines running the console require Tcl/TK
8.3 or higher. Visit
to download the latest version. Most Linux distributions have it.
Machines running the MAT agent require Perl
5.x for the post-modification scripts. These are for site-specific scripts.
The default ones provided were written in Perl. The absence of Perl will
not stop MATtool from functioning.
In order to run commands across many hosts
at the same time a command relay has to be designated. After installing
MATtool on the hosts, from the console designate one host as the command
relay by going to the host properties, and selecting it.
First select a download type. The type
of download depends on whether this is an initial install or an upgrade.
MAT can upgraded from the console without having to log into every host.
This download is for those who are installing
MAT for the first time, or who are installing on a system that has never
been installed with MAT. It includes the console, and agent files.
It does not include the upgrade files.
It is possible to upgrade the MAT hosts
from the console. This makes upgrading to the latest version simple.
You will need to download the new console, and the upgrade package for
the OS's you are running. After installing the console on one host
it can push the upgrades out to all the MAT hosts.
Select one from above.
MATtool is free on single host installations,
and for educational institute use. For all others it is shareware.
