In this section, we will cover the user interface, the different modules, and how they are used.
When we start dbWatch Control Center we will by default start-up in the monitoring view:
We have the top menu, where we find the configuration of client connections and server settings. Details in this section
It is possible to turn off and on modules, check out Disabling and Enabling Views
On the left side, we have the different modules of Control Center.
Underneath the modules, we have the menu for adding new instances, the question mark button that opens this wiki, and the dbWatch button opening the “About dbWatch” view with version information.
On the left top, next to the monitoring module menu, we have the instance status. Status colors indicate the number of instances in each status, green for ok, yellow for warning, red for alarm, and blue for instances where we have lost connection.
Underneath the instance status, we have the grouping and filter section that allows the user to group and filter the instance tree underneath. We go into more details on this here.
Underneath the grouping and filter section, we find the tree structure that allows selecting instances, to open the jobs overview for this instance.
Lastly, underneath the tree structure, we have the icon that shows the username logged in, and next to that a chat icon, that can show new messages, and be used to chat with other DBA’s connected to Control Center.
