- Install Promonitor
To monitor database files size, with the ability to filter by type of file and specific filenames if necessary.
Monitor features include :
Select the specific SQL server file type you want to monitor , select “Any” to monitor any kind of file size, select “Aggregate if you need to monitor the total size of all database files
You can set a file specific rule by setting its name in the File name filter field. Use * to match any file name, or use regular expressions.
File size in MB:
Use the multi-threshold syntax to set multiple threshold/severity associations: G2W:1024 W2M:2048 M2C:4096 (Green To Warning, Warning To Major, etc…), expressed in MB An alarm of the corresponding severity will be sent if file size is over threshold. Set 0 in the field if unused
Notice that values retrieved will be rounded
|Active||Use this field to activate or deactivate a line of configuration.|
|File type||Select the specific SQL Server file type you want to monitor Select “Any” so to monitor every type of file Select “Aggregate” if you want to monitor the size of all database files (aggregated)|
|File name||A filter to match only a specific SQL Server file name, you can use regular expression, white or black list|
|File size in MB||The threshold for the file size elapsed time from the last backup. You can use the multi threshold syntax (i.e. : G2W:10 W2C:40) . Values have to be expressed in MB|
|Auto clear||If checked, the alarm will be cleared as soon as the alarm condition is not met anymore.|
|Alarm tag||This field allows to add custom text within the alarm message. %MSG% variable will contain the actual generated message and can be used such as: “my_prefix %MSG% my_suffix”. By default, tag will be used as prefix.|
|Alarm||If checked, this line of surveillance will be used for alarm generation.|
|Metric||If checked, this line of surveillance will be used for metric generation.|
|Report||If checked, this line of surveillance will used for showing threshold and severity in the daily report|
|Active||File type||File name||File size in MB||Auto clear||Alarm tag||Alarm||Metric||Report|
Effect : For this rule, only Data - rows - type files will be monitored (File Type set to : “Data”).
All Data type files containing the string “DBDATA” on their file names will be taken into account. A WARNING alarm is sent if the file size 1024 MB or more, a MAJOR alarm if 2048 MB or more.
|MSSQL_DATABASE_AGG_FILE_SIZE||MB||AGGREGATE||The addition of all retrieved SQL Server file sizes - aggregated - of a given database, expressed in MB|
|MSSQL_DATABASE_FILE_SIZE||MB||[File type] - [File name]|
expressed in MB|
