EnterpriseDB: Management Server
Oracle Tips by Burleson

EnterpriseDB offers enterprise class administration by providing the EnterpriseDB DBA Management Server.  The DBA Management Server is a web based database monitoring and configuration tool.  You can monitor multiple database servers from a central DBA Management Server.

You can launch the DBA Management Server by selecting it from the EnterpriseDB menu or you can navigate to the URL directly by entering http://<server name>localhost:9000/edb-mgmtsvr.  Replace the <server name> with the name of the host that is running your EnterpriseDB DBA Management Server.

I have tested the management server with IE 5.1, 6.0 and 7.0 and with Firefox 1.5 and 2.0.  Depending on your security settings, you may get a certificate error.  You can choose to ignore the error and the page should still launch.

Once you have logged in, you will navigate through the management server via a menu.  The menu options are Home, Monitoring, SQL, Scheduler, Messaging, Reporting, EnterpriseDB Network and Online Help.  Each of these menu options and their sub-options are detailed below.

Many of the screens and reports contain an Adobe PDF icon.  If you click on that icon, the DBA Management Server will generate a PDF file of the information you are viewing and launch the Adobe viewer.

Before using the DBA Management Server, you must first login.  You will need to login as a DBA or as a super user such as the enterprisedb user.

The first menu that I will cover is the Home menu.  The first sub-option under Home is Home Page.  This page launches when you first enter the DBA Management Server.

Home Page

The DBA Management Server home page is a dashboard showing the general activity on your system.  If you have two gray areas on your screen informing you that you must enable block-level statistics, re-read the DBA Management Server overview in Chapter 2 or read below in the section titled "Configuration".

When you view the home page, Figure 6.2, you will originally see only a single tab with the label of the local database.  You are able to add multiple databases by registering clusters and each cluster you register will add a new tab to the home page.

Figure 6.2: EnterpriseDB DBA Management Server Home

The first graph is a display of the number of transactions that have been run in both the EDB and MGMTSVR databases.  The second graph is a display of the memory activity and the third graph is a display of the file IO. 

You can choose whether or not to include any particular databases by changing the configuration of the cluster.
