Windows Active/Passive Clusters



I have an A/P SQL cluster that I need to monitor Disk Queing on. Since these are tied to the cluster is there a way to monitor the cluster address instead of tying them to a particular box and then have to remember to pause them when I flip.

I am trying to do this now, but when I added the Disk Queing on the now Active box all I am getting are '0's' for data.

Am I doing something wrong here?

I'm afraid there is very little that can be done here. If the counters are set to 0 on the passive node, PRTG will read the 0s on the sensors. That's the way these WMI Counters then work on the Cluster. And the only way would indeed be working with pausing the sensors, if you can't monitor them directly on each physical node.

best regards.
