SunPlex Manager (SPM), aka. Sun Cluster Manager, is a web based GUI interface that you can use to do various cluster administration tasks such as:  view the status of or make changes to cluster resource or resource group states, quorum devices, IPMP groups, interconnect components, and global devices.
