To monitor Sybase with Database Visibility, you must be running version 15 or newer.
|Create New Collector||Database Type||The database type that you want to monitor.|
|Agent||The Database Agent that manages the collector.|
|Collector Name||The name you want to identify the collector by.|
|Connection Details||Hostname or IP Address||The hostname or IP address of the machine that your database is running on.|
|Listener Port||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, |
|Username and Password||Username||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 IBM DB2 LUW.|
|Password||The password of the user who is connecting to and monitoring the database through the Database Agent.|
|CyberArk||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.
|Connection Properties||Click to add a new JDBC connection property or edit an existing property for relational databases.|
|Exclude Databases||The databases that you want to exclude, separated by commas.|
|Monitor Operating System||See this page for more details, Configure the Database Agent to Monitor Server Hardware.|
User Permissions for Sybase
For complete AppDynamics Database Visibility functionality, the monitoring user requires the permissions listed in the table below.
To create a new dedicated user for AppDynamics Database Visibility, you can use following sample user creation script. Before running the script, change "password" to a more secure value.
where DBMon_Agent_User is the user name under which you run the Database Visibility Agent.
Also, the following configuration parameters must be set to 1 (true) in order to monitor the Sybase ASE database with AppDynamics Database Visibility: "enable monitoring", "wait event timing", "SQL batch capture", and "object lockwait timing". You should also set "max SQL text monitored" to at least 8192 (8kB).
Here is an example of the commands required to configure these settings:
If the value for "max SQL text monitored" was previously less than 4096, then increasing this setting will require that you restart the Sybase ASE instance.
To monitor Sybase version 15.7 and later without the sa_role permission, run the following commands:
