Institute metrics for performance applications

  • All reports log the beginning date/time and duration of their execution
  • Usage analysis can be performed by requester, report category and or frequency of request.


  • The WRAAS maintains a detail log for all of the information that is accessed through it. It records:
    • WRAAS Account name
    • Report Title
    • Date/Time of Use
    • IP Address of client workstation that accessed the report
  • In the event of an excessive count of unsuccessful attempts to log-on, the offended account locks up. It then records the server time/date, IP address of the offender and the account in question.

Unify the access to all RDBMS within the enterprise
