SQL Server Monitoring with eG Enterprise

Stop Slow Performance at the Source

Microsoft SQL Server Monitoring for Business Critical Application Performance

Services in most industries – healthcare, manufacturing, finance and more – rely on SQL database servers for data storage and access. Any performance degradation or unavailability of these servers can severely impact the performance of the entire service, often causing customer dissatisfaction and lost revenue.


eG Enterprise for SQL Server

eG Enterprise provides in-depth monitoring for Microsoft SQL database servers:


Automated Root-Cause Diagnosis Performance Issues in SQL

Details of blocked process

Often, application users and developers point to the SQL database server as the reason for a slowdown. In reality, the problem may be caused by other inefficient application design:

The eG Microsoft SQL monitoring software highlights many of these application abnormalities to the administrators. By analyzing the locking patterns of applications, the eG Microsoft SQL monitor identifies “root” blocker processes – the ones that are causing other applications to be blocked. Ranking of applications based on their resource usage and indications of the queries they are running provides critical information that can be used by administrators to tune the usage of their Microsoft SQL servers.

SQL detailed report for Database Size, CPU Usage

eG Enterprise: SQL Monitoring Automation

With its ability to automatically determine baselines for every metric collected in the IT infrastructure, the eG Microsoft SQL monitor provides proactive alerts to administrators. In-depth snapshots of the Microsoft SQL server’s usage are also provided periodically to assist with real-time and post-mortem diagnosis. Hourly, daily, and monthly trends are automatically computed, so administrators can effectively plan the utilization and capacity of their Microsoft SQL infrastructure.

What the eG Microsoft SQL Monitor Reveals

SQL Server Performance Monitoring  
  • Is the Microsoft SQL database server available for servicing requests?
  • What is the response time for a typical query?
  • How many logins/logouts are happening on the Microsoft SQL server?
  • Which applications/users are accessing the Microsoft SQL server and what is their respective resource usage?
  • What queries are each of the applications currently executing?
SQL Server Engine Monitoring
  • What is the CPU utilization of the SQL database server engine?
  • How much time is the SQL server spending on processing vs. I/O?
  • What is the typical workload on the database server?
  • Which databases are imposing most load on the database server engine?
  • How many processes are running, and what queries are they executing?
  • Which user(s) are executing these queries?
Lock Activity Monitoring
  • What is the typical locking activity on the database?
  • Which processes are being blocked and by whom?
  • Which are the root-blocker processes, and what queries are they executing?
  • Are any deadlocks happening?
Database Activity and Space Monitoring
  • What databases are hosted on the SQL server?
  • Is any of the databases reaching capacity?
  • Which of the databases is seeing more transaction activity?
  • How many active transactions are currently happening to each of the database server?
SQL Memory Monitoring
  • Is there sufficient memory available for the SQL server?
  • How much memory is the server consuming and how much is it willing to consume?
  • How much memory is used for connections, how much for locks, and how much for query optimizations?
  • What is the server’s cache hit ratio?
  • How many pages are available in the server’s buffer pool?
  • How many of these are free pages?
Operating System Monitoring
  • Is there sufficient disk capacity?
  • Is there excessive contention for CPU or memory resources?
  • Are the disks unusually busy?
  • Which processes are taking up most resources (CPU, memory, disk, etc.)?

Key benefits of the eG Enterprise for SQL Server

Eliminates finger-pointing among IT administrators by ensuring that problems are easily and rapidly isolated to specific application tiers, so only specific administrators need to be involved in fire-fighting

Why eG? One Monitor to Manage All of IT.

eG Enterprise has been incredibly useful and has far exceeded our expectations. Metrics relating to SQL and missing indexes have provided critical information that we had long suspected were performance issues. Now we have the information to address specific performance challenges.
