Updated DBSize

Had a user request a feature on this to include the connected server name in the results. This is useful in case you use it, then change the server name at the top, but never hit Connect/Refresh…it lets you know the data that’s on the screen isn’t for the server at the top. Also included some enhancements for Oracle to try and make work better in multiple ar db configurations.

The next big thing

The other day I was consulting with my friend Brian about the future of various tools I have on my site, I’m always coming up with new ideas and adding new capabilities, but this is creating sprawl and questions of ‘what’s the difference between this one and that one. So, based on his suggestions, I’m going to start a new effort. This effort is going to bring a majority of my tools together under a single tool umbrella, give them a GUI, and standardize my functions across tools so that they are all modernized in their programming approach and ideally easier to download and run. I don’t of course have a timeline of when the first release will be made, or what combination of tools it’ll have, but over time I’ll be removing the old standalone versions of the tools and migrating them into this new tool kit. Ideally this’ll make the entire process cleaner for you the user and give you a greater breadth of capabilities within the same tool set.

Newer Easier UserCount

I have made some changes to the UserCount tool to make it a bit easier to manage in a server group environment. Adding the -sg option allows you to specify a single server and the tool will gather the rest of the servers directly from ARS, making your config easier

Attachment Validation Plugin Fix

So, version 1.0 of the plugin was an apparent ‘hit’ in that I got allot of people trying to use it virtually immediately, unfortunately it appears my initial testing was flawed and I didn’t find some major problems with it…it simply wasn’t working properly. v1.2 has fixed all of those bugs and enhanced it so that the warning process re-attaches the file from the file system in case the warning was a situation of the virus scan finding a virus and fixing it for you so the file can still be attached, but without the virus. Please continue the enthusiasm and keep working with this plugin.
