The eG Database Layer

The eG manager uses an Oracle or a Microsoft SQL database to store performance metrics reported by the eG agent. To ensure the continuous availability of the eG manager, the eG database should be available, accessible, and have sufficient storage space at all times. The tests mapped to this layer focus on the health of the eG backend, and reveals the following:

  • Whether the automatic database cleanup operations are functioning properly;
  • Whether the database connection pool has adequate free connections;
  • Whether the database has many large tables.
