"This [Michael Lonski's "Pick An Index, Any Index"] session is a perennial favorite for good reasons, Mike does a really good job of explaining how index selection works (or doesn't work), provides lots of illuminating examples and even provides a query testing tool (available on the Allegro website)."

Server Monitoring by Allegro
Monitoring your Progress, open-source, or other mission critical servers means your business will be prepared for potential disaster and often allows you to proactively prevent issues before they become severe. This could impact whether your business is down for a few hours or a few weeks, and could really influence your business' survival. Without an efficient, full coverage server monitoring tool in place, you could lose thousands or even your entire business when disaster strikes.
In addition to server monitoring, Allegro can proactively watch other critical systems such as Microsoft Exchange servers or Lotus Notes servers, but your mission critical systems are more than just the applications and databases. Allegro will also monitor various aspects of the hardware and operating system, from system temperatures to resource utilization and more.
You don't need to hire a full-time DBA or systems administrator to monitor your servers. Allegro’s database administrators can do this for you remotely. Also, as part of our support plans, our team can also set up ProDashboard, the Nagios plug-ins we built and use ourselves to ensure Progress databases and systems are running smoothly.
Our Progress programmers can monitor your Progress-based applications such as Symix, SyteLine, MFGPRO, WDS-II, EFI Hagen, SX Enterprise and NxTrend. Also, our open-source team can monitor your MySQL and Postgres databases, the engines behind applications such as xTuple, osCommerce, Joomla, and SugarCRM.
