    Hello everyone,
    In the Backends category there is a sub category called "Oracle DB", do you know what it means?

    The Backends node of the metric browser tree contains a node for each backend, including those automatically detected by Introscope, or marked explicitly as a backend during ProbeBuilding.

    Backends are most commonly a database, but may be any external system such as a mail server, a transaction processing system (such as IBM CICS or BEA Tuxedo), or a messaging system (such as MQSeries).


    The backend name is a concatenation of the Oracle SID string, the database host and port delimited by a hyphen, and the string (Oracle DB),

    same as


    Microsoft SQL Server etc.

    Thanks for your reply.
    But what does it mean that only "Oracle DB" appears? Is a grouping of the other connections to the databases?
