Database Administration (Release 7.6 ff)

Database administration in a company covers a variety of tasks. The important ones are

  • Reliability of operation
    • Creation, alternation and deletion of database instances and their database users
    • Backup and recovery of database instances
    • Monitoring of database instances and their database users
  • Performance management

To support these administration tasks MaxDB offers the tool Database Manager (DBM – Windows GUI) or Database Studio (Eclipse based GUI, which includes the SQL Studio functionality as well). A command line interface (CLI) supports use within procedural languages like windows command scripts, Unix Shells or Perl and Python scripts.
