Get Sybase Database Information

We can get the information about databases and its objects using sytem procedures, built-in functions and system tables. sp_helpdb reports database(s) information like name,db_size,owner,dbid,created,durability,status.

To get list of databases in ASE:
We can get the list of databases(system and user databases) either using sp_helpdb or sysdatabases. Sysdatabases table gives us more information than sp_helpdb, but doesnt provide the segment information. sp_databases procedures gives only database name, size information.

To get particular database information:
Syntax: sp_helpdb database_name

Example:

sp_helpdb k2schools


Output:

Get Sybase Database Information

To get all databases(system databases and user databases) information:
sp_helpdb

Using System Table: We can get databases information using sysdatabases table. But, this can be run only on master database or use master..sysdatabases.

To get particular database information:

Example1:

1> use k2schools
2> go
1> select * from sysdatabases where name = ‘k2schools’
2> go

To get all databases(system databases and user databases) information:

1> select *from sysdatabases
2> go

To get only databases(system databases and user databases) names:

1> select name from sysdatabases
2> go
