The Management Solution
for Virtual Clock Testing

Time Machine® The Original Virtual Clock

Time Machine Enterprise Management Console

The Time Machine Management Console provides a centralized control center for Time Machine, the Time Machine Sync Server and the Framework add-on products, making management and deployment of virtual clocks a breeze. The Time Machine Management Console allows users to set virtual dates and times through an intuitive graphical user interface allowing simultaneous control over all UNIX, Linux, and Windows machines running Time Machine or any of the Time Machine suite of products. These machines can cross time zones, be in the cloud or on-premises.

The Time Machine Management Console is written in Java so it can be deployed to any platform in the organization.  It is bundled with Time Machine and it can also be downloaded from Solution-Soft.  When used on a host that is running Time Machine, the Time Machine Management Console automatically connects and functions as the local GUI, allowing for the creation or deletion of virtual clocks on the localhost. In addition, the Enterprise edition can connect directly to any image running Time Machine in the enterprise, and can do so in French, German, Russian or Simplified Chinese.

Time Machine Management Console simplifies the creation and deployment of virtual clocks and provides a powerful interface to manage virtual clocks across the entire testing environment. When used with the Time Machine Sync Server, the intuitive interface allows any authorized user the power to create any type of virtual clock (fast, slow, frozen, absolute, relative) and broadcast it to a mass number of machines automatically; a vital enhancement from manually creating virtual clocks per machine as synchronization becomes a problem. Along with virtual clock creation, one can granularly control the testing machine group down to the OS user, the specific Oracle database connection or WebLogic and JBoss deployed applications and grow to an unlimited amount of targets. This simplifies the date testing process as it reduces the possibility of human error when synchronizing virtual clocks across multiple domains and trying to manage the varying accounts.

When used with the Time Machine Framework for Oracle, the Management Console provides the powerful ability to establish virtual clocks for specific connections to the Oracle Database in real time or create rules that, when enabled, will create a virtual clock for a database connection with one or many filters applied. 

When used with the Time Machine Framework for Java, the Management Console enables time shift testing for Java applications deployed to specific Managed Servers in Oracle WebLogic or Red Hat JBoss.  This unique capability enables virtual clocks to be created real time for the managed server as well as rules that can be established for the Java applications deployed to these managed servers.

Time Machine Management Console Virtual Date Selection

Built as a centralized management extension of our flagship Time Machine product, the Management Console provides a fast, easy way to control, manage, and create virtual clocks on the local implementation of Time Machine, a remote implementation as well as broadcast them across large environments consisting of many machines when used with the Time Machine Sync Server or the Time Machine Framework add-on products. The Management Console can effortlessly add and remove targets in the sync group list and broadcast any type of virtual clock with a few clicks. 

Because the Time Machine Management Console eliminates the machine management stress and the mass virtual clock efforts of application testers, this provides the freedom for enterprises to fully utilize their resources for effective date testing. Testers are enabled to leverage their time by focusing on core responsibilities and even split up testing in order to effectively complete testing.  It empowers testers as they are no longer restricted into needing heavy coordination among Application, DBA, and IT Administrators for managing the testing machines and no longer need to time sharing environments.  As a result, testing is accelerated and productivity is boosted as application testers can create and manage virtual clocks on the fly for entire environments.
