sysremote logins is empty

Hi all,

I am using ASE-15.0.2 and when I use sp_monitorconfig 'remote logins' it shows 1300 active connections but when I check in sysremotelogins table it is empty.

After going through the source of sp_monitorconfig I noticed that it fetches the data from a temporary table "resource_result_tbl" and data in this table is inserted through,

               insert into #resource_monitor_tbl values(19, 118, "active_remote_logins", "hwm_remote_logins",null, null, 0, 1)

After checking futher I found config_admin() function.

What does this function do..?

How does it get the data..?

Is it the wrong way of checking for this information..?

Any help would be of great use..

conifg_admin is a TSQL function, it is intended for internal use rather than for direct customer use and so isn't documented in the user manuals.   It serves a number of purposes, but in general it's function is to transfer values to and  from the SQL realm into ASE's internal memory structures.  The most basic use is in sp_configure, when you change the value of a parameter like "number of locks", the SQL in sp_configure can update the value in sysconfigures, but the value also needs to be changed in ASE's internal memory structures where it can be accessed by the c and c++ code ASE is written in.

The header comments for sp_monitorconfig do contain some information on how it is used by that procedure:

132: ** 2. API for getting monitoring stats:

133: ** --  config_admin() is used to get monitoring stats from the server.

134: **     Following values are passed into this API to indicate the specific

135: **     info we are trying to gather:

136: ** o cmd - Set to be 22 (CFG_RESOURCEMONITOR_VALUE)

137: **   indicating we are gathering statistics.

138: ** o value1 - Set to the @confignum of the resource

139: **   we are interested in.

140: ** o value2 - Set to one of following values:

141: **   1 - gathering adjusment value

142: **   2 - gathering the active value

143: **   3 - gathering the HWM value

144: **   4 - gathering the reused value

145: ** o value3 - not used

146: ** o value4 - Set to the monitor counter name of

147: **   the resource we are gathing, if

148: **   we get the stats from monitor counters

sp_montitorconfig is certainly a proper way for getting this information, but there may be bugs in it (I didn't find any known ones that would apply to "remote logins" in 15.x).  The MDA monitoring tables are another good source for this  general kind of information.

Could you post the actual output of your sp_monitorconfig? 

Does it show 1300 active remote connections immediately after rebooting ASE, or does the figure grow over time?

Hi Bret,

Thanks for the reply..

The limit for the remote connections is 100.

I have an application that creates a remote login to far so good..

recently, due to some changes, the applicaiton is getting crashed without closing the remote login connection.

Leave apart the program changes but..why am i not able to see the remote login connection in the sysremotelogin table..?

I now understand what config_admin() does..but how and where does sp_monitorconfig get this information of remotelogins..
