The tool, BMC Software Inc.s ASE Performance Monitoring Option-DBXray for Sybase, is designed to simplify database management through a performance dashboard that allows DBAs (database administrators) to monitor the health of a system, anticipate and solve potential problems, and get a 24-hour view of activity for database performance optimization. DBXray for Sybase provides monitoring capabilities from any PC with a common Internet browser. Besides providing a graphical snapshot of overall database health, it also identifies and eliminates potential server resource and other problems that could impact performance and availability. When specific activities fall outside user-defined thresholds, the monitor alerts users to the potential problem. Alerts are archived for 14 days so that recurring performance issues can be identified. To help DBAs avoid bottlenecks, DBXray for Sybase also provides information on disk subsystem and RAID configurations.
