Installing the SQL Anywhere Monitor in a production environment

It is recommended, particularly in production environments, that you:

  1. Install and run the Monitor Production Edition.

    Advantages to running the Monitor Production Edition include:

    • The Monitor runs in the background as a service.

    • The Monitor starts automatically when the computer starts.

    • Upgrades and updates of SQL Anywhere do not overwrite or affect the Monitor Production Edition. In contrast, upgrades and updates of SQL Anywhere can affect the Monitor Developer Edition as it uses the installed SQL Anywhere on the back-end.

  2. Install the Monitor on a computer that is different from the computer where the resources are running.

    Advantages to running the Monitor on a separate computer include:

    • The impact on the database server or other applications is minimized.

    • Monitoring is not affected if something happens to the computer where the resources are installed.

These instructions explain how to install the SQL Anywhere Monitor Production Edition.
