Limitations on Database Monitor

Maximum number of
connections to each
target database
No limit No limit 100 * No limit
Maximum number of physical
CPUs used for each target
database on a SQL Anywhere
10 or 11 server
No limit No limit 1 ** No limit
Target database may run on a
SQL Anywhere 11.0.1 Standard
or Advanced Edition server
Yes Yes No *** Yes

* This limitation applies to all versions and editions of SQL Anywhere target databases and servers. The actual limit is 101 connections when you count the connection from Foxhound itself.

** This limitation does not apply to SQL Anywhere version 5.5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 target databases and servers. Also, it applies to the number of physical processors as given by the NumPhysicalProcessorsUsed server property, not the number of logical processors shown by "Using n CPUs" value in the Foxhound Database Monitor. For example, a single Intel Pentium 4 processor counts as 1 physical processor even though the separate HyperThreading units may show up as "Using 2 CPUs". Similarly, a single Intel Core2 Quad processor also counts as only 1 physical processor even though it may show up as "Using 4 CPUs".

*** This limitation does not apply to SQL Anywhere target databases and servers earlier than version 11.0.1, which is when SQL Anywhere introduced the notion of different editions.
