Since we released Minion Reindex over aÂ year and a half ago, we’veÂ had a ton of wonderful feedback, praise, questions, and best of all, custom made solutions to custom in-house problems.
You see, Minion Reindex and Minion Backup are both free, and completely open. Nothing’s encrypted, and all dataÂ andÂ configuration options are in tables. Minion Enterprise also stores configurations and collected data in tables (and, provides views and functions for easy access).Â So it’s really easy for ourÂ target audience – that is, database administrators – to write their own queries, alerts, reports, and whatever else they couldÂ possibly need.
And now, they can share those solutionsÂ online at the MinionWare Community Zone.
This is a brand newÂ feature, so it’ll take a little while to really ramp up the submissions. And we’re moderating submissions,Â just to be sure there’s not a bunch of TRUNCATE TABLE or CREATE LOGIN statements, or the like. Â That’ll add just a little time toÂ growing the library of scripts. ButÂ we’ve already seen some really innovative solutions from users. WeÂ can’t wait to see what’s next!
