Coffee Break

Monitoring SQL Server with SCOM and SQL Server MPs

Watch It Now

In this month’s Coffee Break episode, we will be delving into SQL Server MPs. VIAcode’s CEO, Victor Mushkatin, and Team Lead, Alex Protsenko, will be joining SquaredUp’s Technical Evangelist, Shawn Williams, showcasing their SQL Server Management Pack, which provides a comprehensive SQL monitoring solution for SQL Server instances running on both Windows and Linux.

Among other topics, they will:

  • Describe how the version-agnostic SQL Server MP offers improved performance compared to other SQL monitoring management packs
  • Explain why switching from version-specific management packs to an “agnostic” management pack for SQL Server is a good thing and what this means for the SSRS, SSAS, and SSIS management packs
  • Show you some useful tips and tricks for refining your monitoring tools and strategies
