About System Administrator Tools
If you are a Unix system administrator who is taking care of multiple servers, you probably
created some scripts to help you keeping your environment stable. With SADMIN you can be
alerted when something goes wrong, when a script fail or just to let you know that your
script ran with success. You can received these alerts via email, SMS
or Slack application. SADMIN surely can help
you, improve and standardize the administration of your server farm.
