Commerce Bank purchased Brother Eagle software for DB2 and Oracle in August, 2006. In this short
timeframe, Commerce has received positive results from its use. The DBA team is using Brother Eagle
to monitor DB2 and Oracle performance. At a glance, the DBA able to detect when a performance
measurement has exceeded a configurable range. This awareness allows the DBA to investigate the
performance issue while the issue is occurring.
I personally appreciate the ability to configure and define the performance criteria that I want to monitor. The ?ticker tape? display provides me a quick review of performance status without using a lot of video monitor space.
The DBA team at Commerce looks forward to the release of the Brother-RAID product coming in 2008.
Brother-RAID will complement Brother Eagle by providing a ?drill-down? feature to help resolve performance issues once they are detected.
Thank You for your partnership in working with me and Commerce to change our monitoring strategy
from re-active to pro-active. Let me know if you have any questions.
