The Ataman® Display Utility (ADU) is designed to help those with multiple systems or user accounts to keep track of which system they are currently using. Anyone with multiple machines on their desk or that regularly use multiple machines remotely or attached to a common screen/keyboard/mouse via a switch can appreciate how confusing it can be to know which machine one is currently using. Administrators and developers often use different user accounts for different purposes such as testing. Again, it can be very confusing knowing which user account one is currently accessing. To help with this problem, the ADU displays the current user name and the TCP/IP hostname in the following ways:
- In a screen saver (also used when no one is logged in).
- In a "tool tip" activated by hovering your mouse cursor over an icon in the taskbar.
- (Optionally) In a desktop bitmap that is tiled across the desktop.
Additionally the ADU provides the following benefits:
- The screen saver shows the current date and time in a format large enough to be read across the room.
- The task bar icon can be left-clicked or shift-left-clicked to perform actions such as locking the screen, logging off and invoking screen power management features.
