MonitorWare Console - Base Product
Article created 2004-03-22 by Tamsila-Q-Siddique .
Base Product is the core of MonitorWare Console. You
cannot use MonitorWare Console without the Base Product. So lets say that you
are interested only in "Windows Reporting Module", then you would have to
purchase 2 licenses. One for the "Base Product" and the other one will be for "Windows Reporting Module". Base Product
gives you following functionality:
- ICMP Lookup Tool
- Exporting and Importing Database Settings Tool
- Managing Users Tool
- Time Zone handling tool
- Database Maintenances Tools
ICMP Lookup Tools - ICMP Lookup is a feature that helps to
get information on the basis of ICMP type and ICMP sub type.
Export / Import Database Settings Tool - MonitorWare Console
settings are saved in the database to which it is connected, instead of saving
it to the registry files. With this tool you have the flexibility to import or
export the database settings to which MonitorWare Console is connected. This is
specifically helpful during support routine as this enables us to create the
exact scenario in our test lab.
Managing Users Tool - With the help of this tool you can create, update or delete a user for MonitorWare Console application.
Time Zones Handling - Time zones can be added, modified or deleted by using this option.
Database Maintenance Tools - you will have three options over here. These are:
- Backup Records Tool
- Delete Records Tool
- Retrieve Records Tool
Backup Records Tool - With this tool you have the
flexibility to take the backup of the records from the database to which
MonitorWare Console is connected.
Delete Records Tool - The underlying database to which
the MonitorWare Console is connected can grow very rapidly depending on the
incoming traffic. If you want to delete the old records for more disk space then
this tool will provide you the flexibility to delete the records or to take the
backup and then delete the records from the database to which MonitorWare
Console is connected.
Retrieve Records Tool - With this tool you have the flexibility
to retrieve the records into the database to which MonitorWare Console is connected.
