Enabling Technology

HPE Shadowbase File Chaser, HPE Shadowbase SOLV Snapshot Loading, HPE NonStop AutoTMF, HPE NonStop AutoSYNC

Enable the use of HPE Shadowbase data replication

  • Shadowbase File Chaser reads non-audited application-created/maintained log files/tables and injects those events into the Shadowbase replication stream to be applied into the target environment.
  • Shadowbase SOLV Snapshot Loading is a technique for reading and replicating HPE NonStop TMF-audited or non-audited source Enscribe files and SQL tables to a target environment.
  • HPE NonStop AutoTMF, a separate HPE product, enables Shadowbase replication of non-audited HPE NonStop Enscribe file changes. It is required if Shadowbase software needs to replicate the individual Enscribe file changes from the source to the target environment.
  • HPE NonStop AutoSYNC, a separate HPE product, enables the replication of non-database objects (e.g., program object code, TACL scripts, edit files, etc.) from a NonStop source to a NonStop target environment. Shadowbase software does not replicate these object types.

Note: Using the SOLVUTIL comparison feature requires an HPE Shadowbase Compare license.

HPE Shadowbase Enterprise Manager (SEM)

Graphically Manage HPE Shadowbase Environments

HPE Shadowbase Enterprise Manager (SEM) is a Windows-based GUI interface and monitoring interface that controls and monitors Shadowbase replication environments (on any supported platform) and is included with all Shadowbase data replication products.

SEM is designed to enable the monitoring and status of Shadowbase installations on all of the platforms that Shadowbase software supports. Ease-of-use features, such as simple graphical stoplights that are configured for each Shadowbase process or component, make the product easy to learn and use for new operators.

Stoplights can be configured to warn of processes which are down or may be encountering difficulties, and email/pager alerts can be sent to operators when such conditions persist. SEM allows users to view all Shadowbase messages from multiple systems and processes from one location.


HPE Shadowbase Online Database Loading

HPE Shadowbase Online Loading (SOLV) — Online Loading for High-volume Initial Loads and Refresh Loading

Shadowbase Online Loading provides online loading of a source database into a target database, meaning that the source and/or target databases can be open for reading and updating while the load (or copy) occurs. It can perform the load while regular replication is also taking place, consuming the source database changes and merging them with the data being loaded, to keep the target fully synchronized with the source.

Note: SOLV is bundled with a basic Shadowbase real-time replication license.


HPE Shadowbase Queue Manager (QMGR)

Separate the Extraction of the Data Changes from the Delivery and Replay

The Shadowbase Queue Manager separates the extraction of the data changes to be replicated from the delivery and the application of the data changes into the target environment. It allows HPE NonStop data to queue to disk while it is being replicated in order to separate the data’s extraction and delivery from the replaying of that data into the target environment.

Note: The QMGR is bundled with a basic Shadowbase real-time replication license.
