OAT 2.21 has incorporated IDS Enterprise Replication monitoring, a plugin manager to allow customization of OAT functionality and an automated installer on Mac OS X. OpenAdmin Tool for IDS (OAT) is a PHP-based Web browser administration tool for IDS 11 and IDS 11.5 that provides the ability to administer multiple database server instances from a single location. OAT makes administration easy by allowing you to drill down on resource usage and events, view query performance statistics, and much more. And since the tool is written in PHP and available as open source, you can customize it with your own business logic and installation requirements.
New feature highlights of OpenAdmin Tool for IDS version 2.21 include:
- Mac OS X Automated Installer: Automatically setup Apache, PHP, I-Connect and OAT on Mac OS X. For users who want to use or install their own Apache/PHP configurations, OAT is also released as a stand-alone package.
- IDS Enterprise Replication Monitoring: Monitors Spool Disk usage, Send and Receive queues, Receiving/Apply statistics, Routing Topology, node details and much more. OAT Enterprise Replication is provided as a separate plugin. The latest automated installer will install the ER plugin for you, you can also manually place the ER plugin zip file under the OAT plugin_install directory and install it with the plugin manager (requires php zip extension).
- Plugin manager: A simple way to customize OAT functionality. You can download customized OAT plugins and install it with the plugin manager. Sample plugin code is also provided and you can follow the sample in creating your own plugins. Note that the plugin manager requires the php zip extension. The latest OAT2.21 automated installer includes the php zip extension, but OAT2.20 installer does not.
