7 FeaturesTRIM Provides Control! "We use TRIM's Real-time Monitor to check performance on our four databases. It lets us see which programs and which files are used the most, and which users are accessing the system the most. With that information, we can then tune our system to run those programs with maximum efficiency. And, if a program is updated or accidentally purged, for example, we can use TRIM to read the ADABAS Protection Logs directly to find out who did it, when, and from what terminal. We use TRIM daily - it helps to keep us in control.” Allen Lamb, Senior Data Base Analyst Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation New Orleans, Louisiana
8 Features TRIM NATURAL Monitor (TNM) Monitors NATURAL activity Collects comprehensive user and program informationHelps to identify production performance problems

11 FeaturesBatch Slowdown - Enables the site to slow down certain batch jobs to improve on-line response times.Performance Control and Security - Dynamic Control and Security facilitydisallows inefficient commandslocks out file accessplugs ADABAS passwordsperforms security checks.
12 FeaturesCommand and Protection Log Processing - batch facilities for processing ADABAS Command and Protection Logs.Flat files or hardcopy output to assist in performance tuning, chargeback, and capacity planning.Reduction of Command Log DataTRIM Dynamic Logging for detailed, selective loggingTRIM PRESUM facility condenses Command Log data by pre-summarizing it in an ADABAS user-exit.
13 Features TRIM Offers Insight! "TRIM gives us insight into what's happening in a real-time mode. And that kind of CONTROL is important because it lets us react to problems before they're even reported to us! With TRIM, we can track down problem programs and monitor response codes on-line, plus the batch reporting capability is great for review the following day.”Mark Melichar, Database Administrator Blood Systems, Inc. Scottsdale, Arizona
14 Features tRelational Support (tRELOG) tRelational is TSI's ADABAS-to-RDBMS data analysis and migration packagetRELOG provides tRelational with information about ADABAS data usageMonitors activity against specific ADABAS files to identify:Which descriptors were used on each file during the monitoring periodHow often each descriptor was usedThe volume of update versus retrieval activity for each fileCan assist in ADABAS tuning efforts
15 Often we hear "But TRIM requires a big Command Log. " This is false Often we hear "But TRIM requires a big Command Log." This is false. You can do a lot of Performance Monitoring without any logging. And, the log we produce can be a summarization log. Some users run with single cylinder dual logs and get all the statistics they need from our summary log. Of course, if you want all the detail, we'll log it.TRIM UtilizesUser-Exit-B, User-Exit-A: Before and After exits to ADALINK routinesUser-Exit-1: Before ADABAS processes the commandUser-Exit-4: After command processingCommand Log: Formerly one record per ADABAS commandProtection Log: Before and After Images of each updated recordNATURAL ExitsSYSRDCADABAS file for TNMPRESUM to SMF option
