dbWatch Control Center is designed to be customizable and much of the contents are developed inside the product

In this section, we will go over how you can customize different parts of the product. To proceed, click on of the topics below:

  1. Customize dbWatch Views or dashboards using FDL
  2. Customize Reports in dbWatch Control Center
  3. Customize or create new engine jobs
  4. Extending the FDL language with properties, both dynamic and static
  5. Creating and customizing web dashboards
  6. The management module is a set of XML scripts that can be extended and altered. There is currently no graphical interface for editing this, but new XML files can be added using resource import.

dbWatch can help our customers in customizing their views. Just email our support team and we’ll set up a call to clarify what you need. Similarly, customizing views can be done by the end user.

To import new files into the product look into the importing resources section

Underlying most of the product is data retrieved using FDL (Farm Data Language) queries. FDL queries on a graph structure of properties that allow us to create cross-database and cross-platform queries. It is possible for users to add and extend the property system, with metadata and dynamic properties derived from SQL, javascript, or other sources.

Monitoring can be customized by creating monitoring jobs. There are currently two types of jobs.
Engine jobs, which are installed into the database instance, consist of a part of native database program code and accompanying tables.
No-engine jobs, which are based on the property system and consist of one or more queries (SQL or FDL) with program code in javascript.

There is currently only a graphical interface for editing engine jobs.
