The tools include SmartDBA Performance Management for DB2 UDB 2.5, which provides event management, diagnostic, visualization, administration, space management and tuning of DB2 UDB environments. The software integrates common alerts that enable DBAs (database administrators) to more easily monitor, tune and manage space within DB2 databases. Also included is SQL-BackTrack for DB2 UDB 3, which allows DB2 customers to perform database backup and recovery through the SmartDBA Web console. The SmartDBA console also allows users to manage Oracle Corp. and Microsoft Corp. SQL Server databases from one common spot.
The announcement is another installment of BMCs Project Golden Gate, a plan that the company announced in October to provide data management tools that work in a heterogeneous environment.
