PBS Data Access Monitor

When a large number of customer-specific programs are being used, users often ask themselves how often these are being used at all in order to be able to set priorities with regard to further development and maintenance. Which archive files are accessed on a regular basis? From which tables are values repeatedly queried or which transactions are called particularly often? With the PBS Data Access Monitor users can collect, evaluate, and retain this data. They have the possibility to statistically evaluate tables, transactions, reports, or archive access and summarize the collected data, for example, on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. A top or bottom 10 display respectively simplifies the evaluation of the statistics. User-related data is protected via an authorization object and is displayed encrypted.

The statistical data provides the user an overview of how often customer-specific programs are used and therefore help when deciding with which priority reports should be maintained or possibly extended in order to include access to archived data.

The statistical evaluation enables users to see at a glance which archive files are accessed regularly and which only seldom. The latter can then be removed to cheaper storage.
