Status Database MSSQLSERVER



Your Vote:




I have a SQL Server with 3 instances; in each room there are 5 databases. How can I monitor the status of the databases? That is, mounted (normal) and / or disassembled (offline) BBDD. Is it necessary to generate a sensor by DB?

Thank you

Hi Keko,

yes, please create a new sensor for each instance.

First, please add a new PRTG device with the SQL Server's IP address. On this device, please add a "Microsoft SQL v2" sensor for each instance you are running on this server. You can specify the database and also the instance of your Microsoft SQL Database in the sensor's settings page.

Please find more information about the sensor here:

Kind regards
