Note

PATROL for Sybase does not support cluster and failover capabilities. To get complete compatibility information for BMC PATROL for Sybase, use the BMC Solution and Product Availability and Compatibility Utility on the Product Availability and Compatibility page.

PATROL for Sybase monitors, analyzes, and manages the following Sybase software products:

  • Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE)
  • Replication Server
  • Adaptive Server IQ (IQ Server)
  • SQL AnyWhere

PATROL for Sybase for monitoring Adaptive Server Enterprise

PATROL for Sybase contains the knowledge that PATROL uses to monitor, analyze, and manage the activities of Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). PATROL for Sybase provides a convenient and logical user interface that you can use to monitor the performance of Sybase ASE. 

Using PATROL for Sybase, you can monitor the following features of Sybase ASE:

  • Monitor CPU performance, space metrics, database information, database object and segment information, process information, and device information
  • Monitor the up and down status of the Adaptive Server
  • Monitor the Adaptive Server error log (applicable only for local monitoring) 

Important

  • You cannot access and monitor the Adaptive Server error logs when you monitor a remote Adaptive Server.

  • Log monitoring is possible only if you install Log Management KM. That is, for monitoring Adaptive Server error log, you must install Log Management KM locally on your machine.
  • If you are configuring Adaptive Server using Central Monitoring Administration, then you can monitor the error log by enabling the logging option.
  • If you are configuring the Adaptive Server using PATROL Console, then you can configure this option using pconfig variable of Log Management KM.
  • Monitor Adaptive Server on computers not running a PATROL Agent.
