Sybase Monitoring & Management

Sybase is a versatile, enterprise-class RDBMS which is especially good at handling OLTP workloads. It is used extensively throughout the financial world. Hyperic Hyperic uses Sybase Adaptive Server's management interface to provide auto-discovery and monitoring of every Sybase instance in the environment. Using Sybase's management interface provides Hyperic with the ability to gain the deepest visibility into Sybase without compromising its performance or stability.

Hyperic aims to provide SQL Server users the management capabilities typically found in database centric tools coupled with management support for the other technologies which, along with databases, are used in today's enterprise environment. Its powerful application concept allows you to visualize monitoring data from your database tier alongside your business logic and presentation tiers by giving you the ability to measure how client activity is reflected across the various layers of your application infrastructure.
