Plugins that extend the data management functionality

Plugin Description
Data Archiving plugin provides the ability to archive records to minimize performance issues
Database Rotations plugin provides tools for managing large tables to minimize performance issues
Discovery plugin provides the ability to auto-populate the CMDB with data about hardware, software, and networks
Domain Support plugin provides the ability to separate an instance into different distinct domains
Many to Many Task Relations plugin provides the ability to define many-to-many relationships between task tables

Data Rotations plugin

The Database Rotations plugin mitigates performance issues caused by large tables by breaking up overly-large tables into a series of smaller tables, through two methods:
  • Table Rotation: sets up multiple tables for the same purpose that the platform uses on a rotating basis, deleting old information as it goes.
  • Table Extension: creates new tables for the same purpose as the platform fills old tables.

Many to Many Task Relations plugin

The Many to Many Task Relations plugin allows administrators to manage the many-to-many relationships between task tables and record the relationship in more detail beyond Parent > Child.

Domain Support plugin

The Domain Support plugin provides a method for separating an instance into different domains, including partitioning data and securing the domains so that only members of the domain can see the data from their domain. The Data Separation part of the plugin can be implemented separately, if desired.
