Protop

Interactive Monitoring Program for OpenEdge databases, developed and supported by the company White Star Software.
Whether you need to monitor one database on one server or hundreds of OpenEdge databases, AppServers, WebSpeed, Tomcat and other resources spread around the world, the ProTop dashboard gives you real-time visibility into the state of your business-critical application components. ProTop combines its creators’ 30 years of OpenEdge experience with data from widely scattered sources to give you actionable information and alerts in one coordinated and insightful view. With Cloud and On-Premises options and 3 levels of functionality, ProTop adapts to your organization’s needs and policies.

Who is it for?:
ProTop is aimed at all OpenEdge database administrators.

How does it work:
ProTop launches agents, one for every monitored database or resource; they collect info about the monitored element and upload such info to the statistical data repository for the site on the cloud. The resources’ administrator can know their status accessing ProTop’s cloud via web. This cloud sends alarms to sys admins when a certain predefined alarm level is reached for any of the 100+ ProTop’s metrics. Historical data are kept on ProTop’s cloud for months or years.
