Microsoft SQL Server Monitoring

Microsoft SQL Server monitoring helps analyze the usage, performance, and metrics of the database server to optimize the performance of the applications. Getting historical data is key to measuring and analyzing performance trends to take quick actions to perform database tuning to improve our operations.
IT-Conductor makes it easy to monitor the system's availability in real-time and historical (interval-based collectors) to correct performance bottlenecks and make troubleshooting easy and fast.


IT-Conductor allows for monitoring of performance and availability of several SQL Server components.

System Performance

Display real-time metrics regarding the performance of the MSSQL Server in terms of active transactions, locks, checkpoints, user connections, timeouts, etc.
Figure 1: System Performance

Database Status and Space

Monitor the status of each database, database files (mdf, ldf), available space in disk, active connections, log used space %, etc.

Error Logs

Provide an overlook of SQL Server and Agent events to troubleshoot related problems.

Identify backup files that might contain any error due to a problem with the database while the backup is running.

Agent Jobs

Monitor if the MSSQL Agent is enabled or disabled and get notifications about failed jobs to prevent missing backups or critical tasks running as scheduled jobs and identify which step the job failed.

Linked Servers Connectivity

Monitor the status of the linked server and identify why remote connections are broken.
