Admin-Scout 2.3 - New Scheduler Module

schweissen 600x400cWe asked the question, which areas of an Informix database system have to be administered manually and where is it possible to set up an automated administration? The goal is to achieve increasing automation and independent optimization of the system through an interaction of sensors and tasks.

Informix provides an SQL API and corresponding commands as a basis for setting up tasks. If you are an Informix administrator and are rarely concerned with setting up and managing tasks and sensors, you will find that this can quickly become a complex challenge. Therefore, in the new version of our Admin-Scout, we have intensively addressed the topic of a task scheduler and developed a new Admin-Scout module for the administration of tasks and sensors.

The new Admin-Scout 2.3 Scheduler module offers a centralized administration of all tasks and sensors

Admin-Scout 2.2 - Now 100% Adobe Flash free!

  • The CURSOR Service Distribution will release the new Admin-Scout Version 2.2 in March 2019.
  • The Admin-Scout 2.2 is the first release that is delivered without any Adobe Flash modules.
Gießen, 22 February 2019

For years, Adobe Flash was the first choice to visualize animations and sophisticated graphics in a browser. Due to recurring security issues, the use of Adobe Flash Player has long been discouraged. The IBM Informix OpenAdmin Tool also uses the Adobe Flash Player in some areas for the graphical representation of complex contexts.

Security warnings and the end of support for the Adobe Flash Player, already announced for 2020, prompted us early on to switch the graphical interface of the Admin-Scouts to the Dojo Toolkit and HTML5. We have step by step converted all relevant modules. This involved the redesign of all charts and the elaborate redesign of important modules such as the SQL-Trace or the Storage-Module.
