SQL Anywhere Monitor behavior changes

Following is a list of changes to SQL Anywhere Monitor introduced in version 12.0.0.

  • Changes to metric collection   Previously you could configure the type of metrics that the Monitor collected and set the alert thresholds. Now you can only configure the alert thresholds. See SQL Anywhere Monitor.

  • Removing resources   You can remove a monitored resource from the Monitor without stopping it. Previously you had to stop the resource before you could remove it. See Removing resources.

  • Resources no longer have states   Now resources only have statuses. See Dashboards.

  • Changes to alert status   When a condition that triggered an alert no longer exists, the alert status changes to Inactive. An alert with the status Inactive indicates that the condition that triggered the alert is no longer present, but a Monitor user has not manually resolved it. In addition, the Monitor assigns a severity to each alert that it issues. See Dashboards.

  • Changes to the alert threshold defaults   Previously, the Monitor issued alerts when the CPU memory usage reached 85 percent of the maximum cache size for two contiguous collection intervals. Now, the default is 90 percent and the time threshold is 30 seconds. See Alert definitions and thresholds.

  • All users are required to log in into the Monitor   Previously, the Monitor did not require anyone to log in to have read-only access. Now all users are required to log in to the Monitor. See Monitor users.

  • Changes to user language preferences   When a user logs in, the Monitor uses the language preferences of that user to configure the language displayed in the Monitor and used in alerts. Previously, the Monitor used the language set in the browser. See Editing a Monitor user.
