Configuration File

The configuration file dbanalyzer<version>.cfg defines the rules and commands for how the Database Analyzer determines performance-relevant data.

The Analyzer either takes the performance-relevant data directly from the system tables of the database, or calculates it from these values.

The configuration file also describes the five classes (information, three levels of warnings, error messages) that the Database Analyzer uses to analyze the parameters and log them in the log file. You can specify fixed instructions for how the user should respond to these classes.

Changes to the rules and commands apply to the configuration file only; the Database Analyzer program remains unchanged.
