The XCONS (database console) database tool shows the operating system resources utilized by the database system, how database sessions have been allocated to threads, and the status of active database sessions.

We recommend that you only use XCONS in production systems if you have a sound knowledge of databases and operating systems.

XCONS is a command line tool and can be used on all operating systems supported by the database system.

Implementation Considerations

XCONS is part of the MaxDB software package, which you can download from the MaxDB Website (see Download and Installation Profiles).

For further information about the database system, see the documentation Concepts of the Database System and the Glossary.


You can also call up XCONS via the Database Manager CLI or via the database console of CCMS (in SAP systems).


You can use XCONS to display information about the database instance.

The Database Analyzer database tool uses XCONS.
