    89Statmgr works by monitoring error messages which are produced by other Earthworm modules, and determines whether to report and how to report an error. Errors are reported by sending email or generating TYPE_PAGE messages. User-provided software can then pick up the TYPE_PAGE message and hand it to paging software to transmits these messages via modem to a pager service. Statmgr also monitors heartbeats of client modules, and if heartbeats are not received, an email and/or pager message is produced.
