Starting the MobiLink Monitor

You can have multiple instances of the MobiLink Monitor running for each MobiLink server.

 Start monitoring data

The version of the MobiLink Monitor must match the version of the MobiLink Server you are using.

  1. Start your consolidated database and MobiLink server, if they are not already running.

  2. Click Start » Programs » SQL Anywhere 12 » Administration Tools » MobiLink Monitor.

    Alternatively, you can type mlmon at a command prompt. For details, see below.

  3. A MobiLink Monitor connection starts like a synchronization connection to the MobiLink server. For example, if you started the MobiLink server with -zu+ then it doesn't matter what user ID you use here. For all MobiLink Monitor sessions, the script version is set to for_ML_Monitor_only.

    The Connect To MobiLink Server window should be completed as follows:

    • Host   The network name or IP address of the computer where the MobiLink server is running. By default, it is the computer where the MobiLink Monitor is running. You can use localhost if the MobiLink server is running on the same computer as the MobiLink Monitor.

    • Protocol   This should be set to the same network protocol that the MobiLink server is using for synchronization requests.

    • Port   This should be set to the same network port that the MobiLink server is using for synchronization requests.

    • Encryption   If you chose HTTPS or TLS for the protocol, this box is enabled. You can choose an encryption type from the dropdown list.

      To use HTTPS and TLS, you must have MobiLink client-side data stream encryption installed on the computer running the MobiLink Monitor. For more information about security, see MobiLink client/server communications encryption.


      Separately licensed component required.

      ECC encryption and FIPS-certified encryption require a separate license. All strong encryption technologies are subject to export regulations.

      See Separately licensed components.

    • Trusted Certificate File   If you chose HTTPS or TLS for the protocol, specify the name of the trusted certificate file to be used for secure connections to the MobiLink server. For Windows platforms, the trusted certificate store is used if a trusted certificate file is not supplied. Non-Windows platforms require a trusted certificate file be specified for a secure connection.

    • Additional Protocol Options   Specify optional network parameters in this field. The allowed values depend on the connection stream type. Multiple parameters should be separated by a semicolon.

      All valid MobiLink client network protocol options are supported, except for those already set in this window, such as host, port and trusted certificate.

      See MobiLink client network protocol options.

  4. Start synchronizing.

    The data appears in the MobiLink Monitor as it is collected.
