SQL Anywhere Monitor

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, and MobiLink server farms. It can also provide information about the availability of web servers, proxy servers, and host computers.

The Monitor provides the following functionality:

  • Constant data collection

    Unlike many of the other administration tools, 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, web servers, proxy servers, and host computers

    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 database administrator or not, who is responsible for such tasks as:

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

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

  • Ensuring that users aren't blocked or that queries aren't taking too long to run.

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

  • Ensuring that a web server, proxy server, or host computer is available.
