SQL Anywhere Monitor for MobiLink

The SQL Anywhere Monitor, also referred to as the Monitor, is a browser-based administration tool that provides you with information about the health and availability of SQL Anywhere databases, MobiLink servers, MobiLink server farms, and Relay Server farms.

This section describes how to use the Monitor to collect metrics about MobiLink servers and MobiLink server farms. For information about using the Monitor with:

The Monitor provides the following functionality:

  • Constant data collection   Unlike many of the other administration tools available with SQL Anywhere, the Monitor collects metrics all the time, even when you are not logged in to the browser. The Monitor collects metrics until you shut it down.

  • Email alert notification   As the metrics are collected, the Monitor examines the metrics and can send email alerts when it detects conditions that indicate something is wrong with a resource.

  • Browser-based interface   At any time, you can log in to the Monitor using a browser to review alerts and metrics that have been collected.

  • Monitor multiple databases, MobiLink servers, MobiLink server farms, and Relay Server farms   From one tool, you can simultaneously monitor multiple resources running on the same or different computers.

  • Minimal performance impact   The Monitor can be used routinely in development and production environments because monitoring does not degrade performance.

The Monitor is designed to help any type of user, whether they are a DBA or not, who is responsible for such tasks as:

  • Ensuring that a MobiLink server is connected to the network.

  • Ensuring that there is enough disk space or memory available for a MobiLink server.

  • Reviewing the number of synchronizations a MobiLink server performs over a specified time.
