Introduction to the MobiLink Monitor

The MobiLink Monitor is a MobiLink administration tool that provides you with details about the performance of your synchronizations.

When you start the MobiLink Monitor and connect it to a MobiLink server, the MobiLink Monitor begins to collect statistical information about all synchronizations that occur in that monitoring session. The MobiLink Monitor continues to collect data until you disconnect it or shut down the MobiLink server.

You can view the data in tabular or graphical form in the MobiLink Monitor interface. You can also save the data in binary format for viewing with the MobiLink Monitor later, or in .csv format to open in another tool, such as Microsoft Excel; or you can export it to an ODBC data source such as a MobiLink-supported relational database.

MobiLink Monitor output allows you to see a wide variety of information about your synchronizations. For example, you can quickly identify synchronizations that result in errors, or that meet other criteria that you specify. You can identify possible contention in synchronization scripts by checking to see if synchronizations of differing durations have phases that end around the same time (because synchronizations are waiting for a previous phase to finish before they can continue).

The MobiLink Monitor can be used routinely in development and production, because monitoring does not degrade performance, particularly when the MobiLink Monitor is run on a different computer from the MobiLink server.

SQL Anywhere Monitor

The SQL Anywhere Monitor is a browser-based administration tool that provides you with information about the health and availability of SQL Anywhere databases and MobiLink servers. It is useful in assessing overall system health and availability, and for analyzing overall synchronization statistics. The SQL Anywhere Monitor does not provide information about individual synchronizations. For detailed information about individual synchronizations, including timing and other per-synchronization statistics, use the MobiLink Monitor.
