  16. 16. OpsMgr 2007 management pack for SQL Server The management pack now includes the SQL Server 2008 discovery and monitoring management packs. SQL Server 2008 monitoring is identical to the SQL Server 2005 management pack, including the new functionality added in this release for SQL Server 2005 monitoring.
  17. 17. Monitors have been added for log shipping Support for Enterprise, Standard and Express editions of SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008 and 32bit, 64bit and ia64 architectures. Support for both simple and complex SQL configurations such as clustered installations, multiple instances and 32bit roles running on a 64bit OS. Discovery and monitoring of SQL Server roles such as DB Engine, Reporting Services, Analysis Services, Integrations Services.
  18. 18. Discovery of SQL components such as databases, the SQL Agent and SQL jobs. Over 20 views covering areas such as database free space, SQL related performance, SQL related alerts, and lists of the various SQL roles and components which are discovered and their related state.
  19. 19. Reports for longer-term analysis of common problem areas related to SQL Server such as SQL Server lock analysis and top deadlocked databases, SQL Server service pack levels across discovered roles, user connection activity. Role and component specific tasks which provide access to common tools, triage information, or corrective actions without needing to leave the Operations Console in most cases. Monitoring of databases covers database status, database free space, log shipping monitoring for both the source and destination, and transaction log free space.
  20. 20. Monitoring of key SQL related services. Monitoring for persistent SPID blocking. Monitoring of numerous SQL events and performance data points. Alerts bring the issue to your attention and provide knowledge on the impact and possible resolutions.
  21. 21. The MP is designed to monitor the SQL Server 2000, 2005, and 2008 in the following configuration: 32-bit SQL Server on 32-bit operating system, 64-bit SQL Server on 64-bit operating system. For SQL Server 2005, only SP2 or later is supported 32-bit SQL Server on 64-bit operating system. SQL Server 2000 is NOT supported
