|The TCP/IP address of the port on which your database communicates with the Database Agent.
|Custom JDBC Connection String
|The JDBC connection string generated by the database agent, for example,
jdbc/sybaseiq:. You can also specify a custom connection string, which is useful for setting custom authentication options.
|Username and Password
|The name of the user who is connecting to and monitoring the database through the Database Agent. The user should have the permissions described in User Permissions for Sybase IQ.
|The password of the user who is connecting to and monitoring the database through the Database Agent.
|Click to enable CyberArk for database username and password. When CyberArk is enabled, information about Application, Safe, Folder, and Object is required to fetch the username and password for your database. To use CyberArk with Database Visibility, you must download the
JavaPasswordSDK.jar file from the CyberArk web site and rename the file to
cyberark-sdk-9.5.jar. Then, you must copy the JAR file to the
lib directory of the database agent zip file.
Click to monitor multiple database instances in a consolidated view, and aggregate metrics of multiple databases. To monitor a custom cluster, you can add additional hostname or IP address, and port details for each sub-collector. You can add up to a total of 29 sub-collectors. Thereby, 30 databases can be monitored in a custom cluster. In addition to the licenses consumed by the main collector, each sub-collector consumes one or more licenses, depending on the database type.
|Click to add a new JDBC connection property or edit an existing property for relational databases.
