Abstract

A parallel database is one where the data (i.e., tables, views, etc.) is spread over n nodes (i.e., physical nodes). These nodes must all have Database Manager active before they can perform any related database tasks. It is not required that each node function as a server in a parallel configuration. Currently, there is no utility to start/stop Database Manager on all configured nodes.

Graphical Interface for Remotely Starting Stopping Database Manager

       A parallel database is one where the data (i.e., tables,
views, etc.) is spread over n nodes (i.e., physical nodes).  These
nodes must all have Database Manager active before they can perform
any related database tasks.  It is not required that each node
function as a server in a parallel configuration.  Currently, there
is no utility to start/stop Database Manager on all configured nodes.

      This article presents a graphical interface that enables a user
to start/stop Database Manager on any configured node from any
configured node.

      A user would perform the following scenario to start/stop
DATABASE MANAGER on parallel database (PDB) node.
1.  The user enters a command which brings up the initial selection
list' window.
2.  The user places the sprite (i.e., mouse pointer) on the STARTDBM/
STOPDBM on PDB nodes row and clicks a mouse button.  The selected row
will appear in reverse video and below the Selection title.  See Fig.
1.
3.  The user places the sprite in OK box and clicks on a mouse
button.  The user is then presented with a window showing all the
configured parallel database nodes and whether Database Manager is
active on that node.  See Fig. 2.
4.  To start/stop Database Manager on all nodes, the user places the
sprite in the START ALL NODES/STOP ALL NODES box and clicks on a
mouse button.  A pop-up message window will appear informing the user
of success...
