In the context of archiving, a Computer represents a single operating system image (this may be a virtual machine).
The Configuration File is an Adabas file containing the configuration definitions for your site. The same Configuration File may also be shared by other products.
A Daemon manages the control of one or more services such as the Data Archiving for Adabas Service. Daemons run collaboratively within a network infrastructure referred to as a Group.
An Adabas System Coordinator Group defines a logical network of computers where Daemons run.
The Perspective is a way of specifying the Configuration File that the SMH UI is to display. The Perspective may be set to select a Configuration File in one of three ways:
Direct to a specific Configuration File, either local to the UI Computer or via Software AG’s Network.
To the default Configuration File of another Adabas System Coordinator hosted on a different computer to the UI, by simply specifying the hostname and Daemon.
To a specific Configuration File on a different computer to the UI by using the Adabas System Coordinator hosted on that machine and specifying the hostname, Daemon and DB/FNR.
System Management Hub, a Software AG UI for the management of multiple applications.
