Q Replication Dashboard Enhancements Requested

If you work with IBM InfoSphere Data Replication (IIDR), you are probably familiar with the Q Replication Dashboard.  The Dashboard is a GUI which enables you to manage and monitor your Replication and Event Publishing topologies.  For example, IBM’s direction is to move away from using asnmon to set monitoring and alert thresholds and to build this functionality into the Dashboard.

Here’s an opportunity to make a good product even better.  One of my customers had a series of requests to enhance the Dashboard:

  1. Provide the ability to export/import connection and configuration settings.
  2. Enable LDAP authentication.
  3. Provide something other than e-mail alerts (e.g. SNMP or Tivoli Systems Management integration).

Take a moment to review the formal Request for Enhancemant (RFE).
