IssueMonitoring ACE/Server database connections
CauseIn some instances it is desirable to find out what connections are being made into the ACE/Server database, for example, to look at how many remote administration connections are running
ResolutionThis can be done by using a utility provided with ACE/Server. Create the script shown below to monitor parts of the ACE/Server. Then, run it with the parameter of either 'sdserv' or 'sdlog' depending on which of the two internal databases you wish to look at (for more details on the structure of the ACE/Server see the Customizing your ACE/Server (cust_admin.pdf) documentation.

- On UNIX, this script will be as follows:

# Monitor script not supported by RSA Security
. /etc/sdace.txt
ACE=`dirname $USR_ACE`
$DLC/bin/_mprshut -0 $VAR_ACE/${DB}

This will present you with a menu, just select 1 to view active connections.

- On Windows NT and Windows 2000, this script will be as follows (NOTE: You must modify it to reflect your installation location):

set ACE=c:\ace
set DB=%1%
%ACE%\rdbms32\bin\_mprshut -0 %ACE%\data\%DB%
