AvailabilityGuard™ collects data from Sybase by connecting through JDBC to each Sybase server master database and running read-only system table queries.
To scan a Sybase instance, you should make the following preparations:
- Identify the instance virtual IP (name or address) - if not automatically discovered.
- Identify the instance connection port - if not automatically discovered.
- Obtain a user account on each instance with rights to query system tables and execute @@ queries.
- Make sure that IP connectivity through JDBC (default port 5000) is available between the
AvailabilityGuard™ collector server and each instance.
