Tibero User Connections Test

This test reports the number and state of sessions of each user who is currently connected to the Tibero database server. Using the metrics reported by this test, administrators can promptly isolate idle sessions, which are a drain on a server's resources.

Target of the test : A Tibero Database server

Agent deploying the test :An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every user who is currently connected to the target database server.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

The port to which the specified host listens. By default, the port number is 8629.

User and Password

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. A Click here hyperlink is available in the test configuration page, using which a new Tibero database user can be created. Alternatively, you can manually create the special database user. When doing so, ensure that this user is vested with the select any dictionary and create session privileges.

The sample script we recommend for user creation for eG monitoring is:

create user tibeg identified by tibeg default tablespace <users> temporary tablespace<temp>;

grant create session, select any dictionary tibeg;

The name of this user has to be specified in the User text box, and the password of this user has to be entered in the Password text box. This login information is required to query Tibero's internal dynamic views, so as to fetch the current status / health of the various database components.

Confirm Password

Confirm the Password by retyping it here.

Tibero SID

Specify the SID of the target Tibero database instance that is to be monitored in this text box.

Detailed Diagnosis

To make diagnosis more efficient and accurate, the eG Enterprise suite embeds an optional detailed diagnostic capability. With this capability, the eG agents can be configured to run detailed, more elaborate tests as and when specific problems are detected. To enable the detailed diagnosis capability of this test for a particular server, choose the On option. To disable the capability, click on the Off option.

The option to selectively enable/disable the detailed diagnosis capability will be available only if the following conditions are fulfilled:

  • The eG manager license should allow the detailed diagnosis capability
  • Both the normal and abnormal frequencies configured for the detailed diagnosis measures should not be 0.
