The Update Monitor utility polls the EnterpriseDB website and alerts you to security updates and enhancements for Windows hosts as they become available. Update Monitor is automatically installed by the graphical installer.When Update Monitor is actively monitoring, the Postgres elephant icon is displayed in the system tray (see Figure 3.26).If you have installed more than one version of Advanced Server, Update Monitor watches for updates and alerts for all installed versions. When Update Monitor finds an update or alert, it displays an alert symbol to let you know that an update or alert is available for one of the Advanced Server installations (see Figure 3.27).Click Install components to open StackBuilder Plus, and check for component updates. See Section 3.3 Using StackBuilder Plus for detailed information about the update process.If one or more alerts are available for your Advanced Server installation, the context menu displays the alert count. Select View alerts to display the EnterpriseDB Advanced Server Alerts window (see Figure 3.29).The technical alert will provide information about updates and issues that might impact your installation.
