Foxhound Version 4 Is Coming Later This Summer

Foxhound is a third-party database performance monitor for SAP® SQL Anywhere®.

Foxhound Version 3 has been around for a while, and Version 4 ... will ... may ... should be available later this summer :)

Here's a teeny-tiny excerpt from the full What's New:

  • Foxhound Version 4 will support target databases running on SQL Anywhere 17...

  • ...including SQL Anywhere 17.0.4. Foxhound 4 will also support target databases running on SQL Anywhere versions 5.5 through 16, but so does Foxhound 3 now.

  • Foxhound 4 itself will run on either SQL Anywhere 16 or 17.

  • When Foxhound 4 itself is running on SQL Anywhere 16 it will still handle a target database running on SQL Anywhere 17.

Foxhound 4 Will Be FREE! ( Some Restrictions Apply :)

If you're thinking you need a performance monitor for SQL Anywhere, one that actually works, don't hold back...

From this date forward, if you purchase Foxhound 3, you'll be able to upgrade to Version 4 at no charge as soon as it's available. 1996-04-21

Life's too short to keep track of where anything is on the SAP website, let alone keep up with link rot.
