MobileDBA SQL Server Features

MobileDBA takes database administration to the next level. First, it provides DBAs with a remote wireless connection to their database from any location using PocketPC or Palm devices. Next, the device is loaded with Proactive Technologies’ leading edge software application that allows DBAs to completely administer their database as if they were in the office. Finally, the application is extremely easy to use, being an entirely “stylus” only driven application.

The MobileDBA software package includes server software that resides on an organization’s LAN, behind the firewall and thin client. MobileDBA was designed with security in mind. It has several layers of security and can seamlessly work with VPN, SSL, DESX and other encryption protocols.

Key Features:

Object Manager

MobileDBA Object Manager is a innovative administration option that allows the administrator among other things to explore database objects by schema or by object type from a common entry point.

  • View complete information for all object types in the database.

  • Create, modify, or drop critical database objects.

  • Drill down to information related to the object.

Session Manager

  • Monitor user connections.

  • View active or inactive session separately.

Using Session Manager DBA can quickly check for deadlocks and resolve it by killing locking session, or looking at user’s SQL statement realize that table index is not used, then DBA can create and analyze index, using MobileDBA Object Manager.
