Hi there,

We have already issued a creation of a native WMI Microsoft SQL Server 2019, but it is still on our to do so far.
I also don't expect it to be part of PRTG real soon as there are only just a few requests as of yet. I see it coming though, but not with high priority.

Best,
Sebastian

Shame it will take a while, the sensors are really good! I assume if I want to monitor it I'll have to use some script sensors?

Thanks

For the time being this would be the way to go, yes.
I'll keep my fingers crossed, that we see the corresponding sensor soon.

Not yet, sorry. There are still not many requests so other implementations have a bigger priority at present.

How do you calculate the "number of requests"? Should each customer create a new topic on this board? Or should they make a "me to!" comment? Or should they "up-votes? a post

Thank you very much for your valid questions. It's a mix of pretty much everything and it is not as strict as with other feature requests because we already have an internal developer task for that sensor. We basically quantify the requests on all different channels (KB, upvotes, support tickets, etc.)

The numbers increase to be honest, so I try to make you guys better heard now and push the internal task. However please note that even with an immediate start for planning, implementation and testing phase it will take weeks from now on. Anyhow, be assured that I will reach out to dev again.

Best,
Sebastian

I just counted all requests that we have at present and it's still pretty overseeable to be honest. If you check our roadmap you will see that we are currently working on a lot of different things. Many of the issues listed here many PRTG users will benefit from. Please understand that we have to prioritize somewhere, but I pushed the task as promised so we'll see.

Did anyone manage to create any custom sensors for monitoring SQL 2019? Presumably you can achieve this around some Perfmon counters?

I must say with SQL server being such a huge part of any organisations i'm surprised at the lack of emphasis from Paessler to get this sensor to market.

Thanks

Any news on this? SQL 2019 has been out for some time now, and we are receiving more and more requests from our customers who want to monitor their SQL environments.

Hi Jacob,

Thank you for the feedback. I'm afraid there is no update on this case. Your feedback will help us to understand the importance of this sensor.


​Kind regards

I would like to request the SQL 2019 sensor as well - Our organization is migrating and I really need to continue with the reports I can generate from the data, not to mention the alerting.
