Admin Scout 3.2 offers a long-awaited feature: easy comparison of the databases' structures in different instances.
The new module compares the typical database objects such as tables, views, external tables, sequences functions and access rights, including the respective associated indexes, constraints and triggers.
This premium feature increases productivity while matching and adapting database structures and objects.
Admin-Scout 3.0 - Functional right from the start!
Admin-Scout 3.0 offers a completely revised design and up to 60% faster evaluations.
Revised user interface
The entire user interface of the Admin-Scout is designed more uniformly and with better performance. The access to configuration and server administration is clearly structured. Optimized table structures and scaling of the display, lead to a considerably faster page layout.
New SQL Toolbox
The version 3.0 impresses above all with the new SQL Toolbox with many powerful functions in the Database Explorer and SQL Editor. As a result the Admin-Scout offers more interesting functionalities for development and tuning of Informix databases.
Admin-Scout 2.3 - New Scheduler Module
We 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

Overview of the new features:
- https port is now active - generating of a self-signed certificate.
- Setting up an encrypted SSL connection on the database port.
- Easier selection of instances - access to instances of different groups.

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.
