Make SQL Monitor scale to more machines and networks
CONTEXT: We want to monitor many different servers in different domains and locations
PROBLEM: Network configuration for cross-domain monitoring can be challenging, and SQL Monior can slow down if many servers are being mointored
• Create a central web interface that can access multiple Base monitors
• Provide an optional agent that can be deployed for easier network configuration
• Make a single installation of SQL Monitor scale to a larger number of servers, and make network configuration easier
Version 7.1.2 is now available and features a beta for the ability to install multiple base monitors with a single UI.
Documentation can be found here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SM7/Multiple+base+monitors
We’d really like to get your feedback if you try this out, so we can get an idea of how many people are using multiple base monitors, and where we can improve it.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback, or if you have any questions we can help with.
We have multiple servers in different domains. At present there is no trust between the domains and we have a seperate login for each domain. Each domain also has its own IP address range and there may be 2 or more firewalls between the servers. Is an optional agent based approach feasable where all the work happens locally & say XML is punted back & forth over a particular port?
