Get the Big Picture

See the complexities in your workload structures through visual mapping to facilitate design reviews, issue investigation and analysis.

Master Dashboards

Check the high-level status of all of your Tidal Masters in one view. Drill through to Dashboards per Master to review Job Runs Statistics over time, System Activity, Queue and Connection status data. View Queuing statistics as a trend or focus on any specific point to inform demand and capacity planning. Dashboard charts and grids support printing and export.

Job Design Visualization

See the design of your job structure hierarchies and dependency chains. Instantly grasp the complexities in your workload structures; fast-track design reviews, issue investigation and analysis; identify opportunities for improvement; and create design documentation directly from the schedule itself.

Calendar Design and Visualization & Calendar Change Impact Analysis

Visualize and explore your Tidal calendar design. Transparently identifies the Tidal jobs, triggers and node outages that directly or indirectly reference a revised calendar. Immediately see the potential impact of a calendar change on Tidal entities.

See What’s Changed

Compare and track differences between calendar, schedule and database versions to preserve the integrity of job structures and dependencies.

Schedule Comparison

Detect variations between schedule components and job structures quickly and accurately. See differences in job definitions, job dependencies and job events. Easy-to-understand graphical views highlight differences between in-job structure and dependency chains.

Compare differencing of data from the varmst, jobclass, jobclassevent, trgmst, nodmst and servicemst tables between Tidal databases. Explorer facilitates Tidal Automation database migrations with full-table comparisons of jobmst, jobdtl, jobdep, evntmst and usrmst tables between original and migrated Tidal instances.

Schema Compare supports comparison of the DB table and column definitions between Tidal databases.

Schedule Development

Accelerate the analysis, planning and communication of schedule changes and development of new schedules.

Analyze and Resolve

Easily answer questions like “Where am I using fileX in the schedule?” or “Am I using myPassword in the schedule?”

Job Run Search and Output Compare

Accelerate job failure analysis and resolution. Streamlines the diagnostic process by:
