Abstract

IBM Tape System Reporter (TSR) enables operators and administrators of the TS3500/TS3310 Tape Library to monitor and report on storage devices in an enterprise environment

Download Description

The IBM Tape System Reporter application has a Windows-based GUI server and client application and a Java-based server application. The Java-based server application allows you to monitor multiple TS3500/TS3310 libraries. The Windows-based GUI software application allows you to monitor and generate custom reports for multiple TS3500/TS3310 tape cartridges, tape drives, and tape libraries. The IBM Tape System Reporter application operates by collecting information from the TS3500/TS3310 tape libraries, aggregating the data in a database, and providing you the ability to generate a General SQL Query or custom report on the utilization and performance of tape cartridges, tape drives, and the tape library. The IBM Tape System Reporter application is bundled with your ALMS purchase for your TS3500 Tape Library or simply with your TS3310 Tape Library.

  • Derby has a small footprint -- about 2 megabytes for the base engine and embedded JDBC driver.
  • Derby is based on the Java, JDBC, and SQL standards.
  • Derby is easy to install, deploy, and use.

IBM DB2 Express-C is a no-charge community edition of the DB2 data server. DB2 Express-C can be setup quickly, is easy-to-use, and includes self-managing capabilities. It also embodies all of the core features of the more scalable DB2 editions, including the revolutionary pureXML technology for powering a new breed of Web 2.0 and SOA based solutions
