TX —Nov. 13, 2006— Bradmark Technologies, Inc., an
established provider of data management solutions, today
announces the general
availability of Surveillance
IQ™ version 3.0.5. Bradmark's Surveillance IQ™ provides real-time
diagnostic monitoring, unattended event management, and historical reporting
related to the performance of your Sybase IQ servers. Key enhancement features
include: comprehensive multiplex monitoring, SQL execution analysis, table
capacity and utilization analysis, and much more.
In a Sybase
IQ database, long-running transactions can cause a build-up
of "other versions" of database pages. "Other
versions" can result in a full data store thus causing
availability issues. In a Sybase IQ multiplex environment, "other
versions" resolution is a time-consuming, manual process
whereby a DBA collects information
from every server in a multiplex environment. Surveillance
IQ™ provides a centralized
view of all open transactions and associated "other versions." In
addition, a comprehensive dashboard provides a status view
of all the servers in a multiplex environment.
The new SQL
analysis feature captures SQL execution statistics, which can
be used to determine who ran what SQL, when they ran it, and
how long it took to run. This information is useful for performance
analysis as well as to help address audit compliance.
capacity and utilization analysis feature identifies and tracks
high growth tables and helps identify hot tables to optimize
resources. This also helps identify what tables and columns
are never accessed in queries, which is particularly useful
in data warehouse environments, to help eliminate unnecessary
data loads and storage utilization.
to Tom Callaghan, Vice President of Technical Services, " This
release of Surveillance IQ adds significant new monitoring
features that will prove essential for managing large Sybase
IQ databases, especially in multiplex environments. The new
multiplex alerts and dashboard view provide proactive monitoring
and quick problem diagnosis to ensure availability and reduce
the time spent by DBA staff solving multiplex related issues."
IQ also provides monitoring views, reports, and alerts for
key performance and utilization metrics providing a turnkey
monitoring solution for your Sybase IQ environment. DBAs can
analyze external files such as the Catalog Store, Catalog Log,
IQ Message File, and the server log directory for size and
available space and the configuration view shows the IQ configuration
settings. Standard alerts provide notification of all parameters
that would take an IQ database offline or negatively affect
to Sybase IQ, Bradmark provides the only complete monitoring
solution for the entire Sybase environment, including tools
for Sybase ASE 15 and Replication Server. Bradmark's Surveillance
implements a unique agent-based architecture, suited to any
size implementation. The server agents occupy very small footprints,
usually as low as 2% of the system resources and have minimal
impact on network traffic. Users can utilize a standard set
of rules or create customized rules and alerts for every conceivable
condition and organizational structure.
