AACHEN, GERMANY (20 January, 2011) – Today Habarisoft announced the start of the FireAlarm project, a monitoring solution for the Open Source RDBMS Firebird.
FireAlarm checks Firebird servers for high load situations, caused by software failures or denial of service (DOS) attacks, and helps developers or database administrators to detect performance bottlenecks. It is written in the Java programming language and released as open source.
FireAlarm uses a query language for event stream processing (ESP) to detect complex data and event conditions. The library allows the creation of custom alarms, monitors itself to keep the server load low, and is easy to extend and configure.
Developers can download the alpha release source and stand-alone executables from the project web page.
Habarisoft enterprise messaging libraries connect applications all over the world and help developers to build integrated systems. The company provides software libraries and components for Embarcadero Delphi® and for the Java™ platform since 1998.

FireAlarm, the open monitoring solution for the Open Source RDBMS Firebird, now includes a JMX notification broadcasting extension. Using the Java Management Extensions (JMX) API, client applications can watch the server status and receive warnings and critical information on a console or graphical user interface. Example projects for console and GUI clients are included in the project source code.
