DRX Tool Availability

At the EMC Federal Forum on Wed, July 28, 2010 in Washington, DC, Flatirons Solutions demonstrated their Documentum Repository eXplorer (DRX) tool and announced its general availability.

DRX is a powerful auditing tool that allows Documentum administrators and developers to quickly access vital information about their repository and environment. DRX is a completely self-contained application not requiring access to the user’s DFC or JVM. DRX does not modify the repository it is accessing in any way. DRX uses a simple user interface to allow the user to connect to a repository and select which reports to run.  The resulting reports are written in HTML and can easily be viewed with any browser.  DRX can also be run from the command line thus avoiding the UI altogether.  You may choose to do this if you are running DRX as a recurring job.

Reports included in DRX  are:

  • Environment – get server environment info
  • Lifecycles – get details about lifecycle templates and instances
  • Configuration – get server configuration information
  • Registered Tables – get registered tables and produce SQL scripts
  • Custom Types and Hierarchy – get custom object types and hierarchy
  • Document Templates – get all of the document templates in Docbase
  • Maintenance Reports – get reports from five key maintenance jobs
  • File System – get statistics about the files on the file system
  • Cabinets/Folders – display cabinet and folder hierarchy and sizes
  • DocApps – describe DocApp contents
  • Users/Groups – get users, group membership, roles and aliases
  • BOF – get TBOs, SBOs, and Aspects
  • ACLs – get all system ACLs
  • RPS – get Retention Policy Services details
  • Jobs/Methods – get jobs, methods and procedures
  • PRM – get Physical Records Manager details
  • Workflows – get details about workflow templates and instances
  • RM – get Records Manager details
  • TaskSpace Applications – get TaskSpace application details and components
  • If you have an idea for a report to include in DRX or a suggestion for an improvement, let me know!


    About Scott
    I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
