To register a Sybase database for DPA to monitor:

  1. On the DPA home page, click Register DB Instance for Monitoring.
  2. Under Self-Managed, click SAP Sybase ASE.
  3. Click Next.

Enter connection information

For the Sybase server, enter the server name or IP address and port. The default port is 5000.

SolarWinds DPA will monitor all databases within the instance. If more than one instance exists on the server, you must register each instance separately in DPA.

Enter SA_ROLE credentials for SolarWinds DPA to register the database instance.

The Sybase Monitor Server does not need to be configured for SolarWinds DPA to monitor the database.

Enter the monitoring user

SolarWinds DPA gathers information through this user from the monitored instance.

You can create a monitoring user through DPA, or use an existing user.

Allow DPA to create the user

SolarWinds recommends this method because SolarWinds DPA requires special permissions that existing users may not have.

  1. Next to Create Monitoring User, click Yes.
  2. Select the Authentication method, and enter the user name and password.

Create the user manually

  1. Next to Create Monitoring User, click No.
  2. Enter the user name and password.

SolarWinds DPA requires the monitoring user to have SA_ROLE and MON_ROLE privileges for data collection.

SolarWinds DPA ignores data on the monitored database instance from the specified monitoring user. Make sure the monitoring user will not cause load on the monitored instance.

Oracle repository tablespace

If your repository database is not Oracle, the wizard skips this step.

Choose the tablespace in the repository database to store DPA performance data for this monitored instance.

By default, the performance data is stored in the default tablespace of the repository user. However, data for monitored instances can be stored in separate tablespaces.

Select the Alert Groups

If you have no Alert Groups set up, or if this new database instance does not match the database type of the Alert Group, the wizard skips this step.

Alert Groups simplify alert configuration and help make alerting more consistent across the monitored database instances.

Select the Alert Groups you want the new database instance to join.

Summary

  1. Confirm the registration information, and click Register Database Instance.
  2. Click Finish to go to the DPA home page, or click Register Another Database Instance to continue registering.
