Monitor a failover cluster in Azure
I have two failover clusters in Azure using ClusterSharedVolume storage, migrated from terrestrial clusters.
I've been using SQL Monitor to monitor all aspects of these clusters but now I've migrated to Azure, the monitor can't connect (I believe it's to do with the inability to ping the cluster load balancer in Azure).
I'm sure, as more and more of us migrate to cloud services, that covering an Azure cluster would be most welcome.
SQL Monitor versions 7.1.6 and above support SQL Server Failover Cluster Instances and AlwaysOn Availability Groups hosted in Azure.
There are lots of ways in which Azure clusters can be configured, so we would be very interested to hear whether our approach works for you.
If you’d like to suggest how we could improve the feature, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
This needs to be addressed. The monitor becomes useless in this scenario.
