How does eG Enterprise monitor the Tibero Database Server?

eG Enterprise can monitor Tibero Database server in an agent-based or agentless manner. In case of the agentless approach, the remote agent used to monitor the Tibero Database server should be deployed on a remote Windows host in the environment.

Pre-requisites for Monitoring Tibero Database Server using eG Enterprise

In order to monitor a Tibero database server, a special database user account has to be created in every Tibero database instance that requires monitoring. Ensure that this user is vested with the select any dictionary and create session privileges.

Managing the Tibero Database Server

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the Tibero Database server. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage a Tibero Database Server, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select Tibero Database Server as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke Figure 1.

  4. Specify the Host IP and the Nick name of the Tibero Database Server in Figure 1. By default, the Port at which the server listens to is specified as 8629. If the server listens to any other port, then specify the port number in the Port text box.
  5. By default, the Agentless option will be unchecked while you add the Tibero Database Server.
  6. Click the Add button to add the component.
  7. When you attempt to sign out, a list of unconfigured tests will appear as shown in Figure 2.

  8. Click on the any test from the list of unconfigured tests. For instance, click on the Tibero Database File Status test to configure it. In the page that appears, specify the parameters as shown in Figure 3.

  9. To know how to configure these parameters, refer to Monitoring Tibero Database Server.
  10. Next, try to signout of the eG administrative interface, now you will be prompted to configure the Processes test and Log Monitor test. To know how to configure the Processes and Log Monitor tests, refer to Monitoring Unix and Windows chapter .
  11. Finally signout of the eG administrative interface.
