Monitoring the UniVerse Database Server

eG Enterprise provides a specialized monitoring model for the UniVerse Database server. Each layer of this model is mapped to tests that employ native operating system-level commands, network-level pings and UniVerse shell commands to periodically check on the availability of the database server, track the session load, and look for file locks in the database. Whenever an abnormality is detected – say, a session overload condition on the database, a sudden break in the availability of the server, or many and frequent file locks – the tests promptly notify the database administrators, so that they can instantly initiate remedial measures.

The bottom 3 layers are similar to that of the Windows Generic Server model. For more information about these layers, see Unix and Windows Servers.
