Much of the functionallity in dbWatch is defined in xml files, including report specifications, task specifictions and management specifications.
That means that functionallity can be modified by supplying new xml files to dbWatch.
There are two ways of doing this.
Through the dbWatch Monitor.
On the Server menu, you can click on “Upload resource”.
This brings up a dialog where you can select a file to upload, and what dbWatch Servers to upload it to.
In our example we have a dbWatch Server registered.
To upload a file, simply click “Select file” (or type/paste the complete path manually). Select the desired Servers, and click “Upload”.
This is the preferred way to import single files to many dbWatch Servers.
Through the file system.
Find the desired dbWatch Server workarea on the file system. (On a standard windows installation this should be “C:/ProgramData/dbWatchControlCenter”.)
Then locate the import area catalog located here: “[dbWatch workarea]/data/resources/import_area”
Copy the xml/csv file(s) into this catalog, and the dbWatch Server will automatically import them.
This is the preferred way for bulk imports.
