One of the exciting new features in ESP v5.1 is the addition of Sybase Control Center (SCC) for operational monitoring of your ESP servers in production. The user guide for SCC for ESP is here. It’s published as part of the SCC doc set – so some of the ESP users have had trouble finding it. But have a look – one more reason to upgrade to ESP 5.1.
Here’s a short description from the intro in the user guide:
Sybase® Control Center for Sybase Event Stream Processor is a Web-based tool for managing and monitoring ESP Server nodes, clusters, projects, and other components of the Event Stream Processor environment.
Sybase Control Center supports Sybase Event Stream Processor version 5.1 or later.
The SCC architecture allows multiple administrators using Web clients to monitor and control all the Event Stream Processor components in an enterprise through one or more SCC servers. SCC for Event Stream Processor provides availability monitoring, historical performance monitoring, and administration capabilities in a scalable Web application that is integrated with management modules for other Sybase products. It offers shared, consolidated management of heterogeneous resources from any location, alerts that provide state- and threshold-based notifications about availability and performance in real time, and intelligent tools for spotting performance and usage trends, all via a thin-client, rich Internet application (RIA) delivered through your Web browser.
Use SCC for Event Stream Processor to track a variety of performance metrics, gathering statistics that over time will give you powerful insight into patterns of use. You can display collected data as tables or graphs. By plotting results over any period of time you choose, from a minute to a year, you can both see the big picture and focus on the particulars. Detailed knowledge of how your Event Stream Processor environment has performed in the past helps you ensure that Event Stream Processor meets your needs in the future.
