The System-Monitoring Interface Tables

The sysmaster database contains many tables that you can use to monitor your system.

Tip: For each system-monitoring interface (SMI) table, there is a corresponding view with the same name. For the best results, query the views that are associated with tables instead of querying the underlying tables directly.

Many other tables in the sysmaster database are part of the system-monitoring interface but are not documented. Their schemas and column content can change from version to version. The flags_text table now contains more rows. To view the new rows, first drop and then re-create the sysmaster database.

The following table lists the SMI tables.
