Sybase Health Check Tool

Features     Requirements     Example     Install

Load the file check_db.gz onto a unix directory then run the following commands :

gunzip check_db.gz # uncompress the file
chmod +x check_db # make the script executable
./check_db # run the analysis
more /tmp/check_db.rpt # look at the report

It takes a couple of minutes to install the program and between 10 minutes and an hour to analyise your database. The program will ask for login details before it runs. The program creates a few small temporary tables in the tempdb database but these are removed once the report is generated. No changes are made to your database and your login details are not stored. I'd advise looking at any program downloaded of the net before you run it.
