Title: Server cluster monitoring

Abstract: A master monitor spawns a local monitor in each node of a server cluster. Each local monitor, responsive to a database event, determines a metric of a performance-related variable. A maximum period between measurements may be imposed to reduce irrelevant results, as may a minimum period. The metric may be stored in a measurement file on the respective node and/or may be reported to the master monitor. The master monitor may make any reported metrics available to a user via a front end.
