Sybase Inc. on Monday released a performance monitoring tool for Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise, the company's enterprise-class relational database management system.

The tool, BMC Software Inc.'s ASE Performance Monitoring Option-DBXray for Sybase, is designed to simplify database management through a performance dashboard that allows DBAs (database administrators) to monitor the health of a system, anticipate and solve potential problems, and get a 24-hour view of activity for database performance optimization.

DBXray for Sybase provides monitoring capabilities from any PC with a common Internet browser. Besides providing a graphical snapshot of overall database health, it also identifies and eliminates potential server resource and other problems that could impact performance and availability.
