About Admin-Scout development
CURSOR Informix Support employees have more than twenty years of experience in supporting and administering Informix databases. We have been developing the Admin-Scout since mid-2015 and the first customer installations took place in 2016.
This was preceded by a set of tools (scripts) that we developed and used to support Informix installations in 24x7 support. In order to bundle our tools under a uniform interface, they were integrated into the Informix OpenAdmin Tool as "CURSOR Plug-Ins". The Informix OAT was a well-known platform through which we could make the CURSOR plug-ins available to Informix administrators in general.
In the meantime the Admin Scout has developed into a stand-alone appliance where nothing reminds of the Informix OAT.
A reworked user interface, significantly new functions - such as the Admin-Scout Dashboard - and new concepts for alerting and data security have been added. There is hardly an area that has not been revised by CURSOR Informix Support. This is especially visible in the replacement of Adobe Flash in the OAT interface or the introduction of an SQL editor with syntax highlighting.
With the release 2.2, from March 2019, the Admin-Scout will only be provided on the basis of the Dojo Framework with HTML5 and without Adobe-Flash.
In the Admin-Scout developer blog we present some new features as articles. A good overview of the enhancements can be found in the article Development and Release Steps, in which we also give a preview of the features of the next version
