Changing OpenEdge Management Trend Database settings

You determine whether the OpenEdge Management Trend Database stores trend data in a local or remote OpenEdge Management database. For trending to a local database, you specify the local database path name and the local database port when you initially configure OpenEdge Management. For trending to a remote OpenEdge Management instance, you specify the remote OpenEdge Management host name, remote Web server port, user name, and password of the remote OpenEdge Management Web server. The user credentials with the Trending role must be created on the remote OpenEdge Management Web server. See Adding a new user for more information. (These initial configuration steps are described in Setting Up OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer for the First Time.
Although you cannot choose to use the HTTPS protocol when you are making your initial configuration decisions regarding the location of the OpenEdge Management Trend Database, you can make that choice afterwards by updating the configuration options. If you have a client that needs to get through a firewall, you can also configure trending to use a proxy server instead of connecting directly to the Internet.
For HTTPS, you can open data transfer to anyone, keeping in mind that it might add some overhead to communications.
If you choose to trend to a scripted database and use the HTTPS protocol, the machine on which the database resides must have HTTPS enabled in the Web server configuration.
To store trend data in a managed OpenEdge Management database:
1. From the management console, click Options.
The OpenEdge Management options and configuration page appears.
2. Select Trend Database.
The OpenEdge Management Trend Database Configuration page appears and displays the current trend database settings.
3. Select Store trend data in a local OpenEdge Management database.
4. Type the database path name (for example, C:\Progress\oemgmt\db\Fathom.db). (Note that the inclusion of the .db extension is optional when you provide the path name.)
5. Type the database port number (for example, 1234).
6. Enter the user name and password in the Local database user and Local database password fields, respectively.
7. Click Submit.
