How the agent makes Sybase highly available

The Cluster Server agent for Sybase continuously monitors the Sybase database and SybaseBk processes to verify whether they function properly.

The agent for Sybase can perform different levels of monitoring and different actions which you can configure.

See How the Sybase and SybaseBk agents support intelligent resource monitoring .

For ASE Enterprise edition when the agent detects that the configured Sybase server is not running on a system, the Sybase service group is failed over to the next available system in the service group's SystemList. The configured Sybase servers are started on the new system, thus ensuring high availability for the Sybase server and data.
