Monitor stores historical information about jobs in a relational database. As of version 2015.09, the database is fully integrated and managed as part of Monitor. This section provides an overview of the components that run and manage the database.

The database, vovdb, is based on PostgreSQLâ„¢, a performant and reliable open-source database engine with decades of wide-scale use. There are two ways to configure and manage vovdb: through the Database Administration Web UI and via the command line.

It should never be necessary to run vovdb directly; once configured and enabled, Monitor will automatically start and stop the database as needed.
