Comprehensive Guide for Monitoring SQL Server and Azure SQL DB 


MS SQL Server is one of the most popular workloads in the world and is so much more than just the on-premises database engine for Windows Datacenter. We now also have Azure SQL DB a robust and scalable cloud-hosted database and SQL Server on Linux which eliminates boundaries between Windows and Linux data centers. We want to show you the most exciting and compelling ways to get all these scenarios monitored using SCOM, OMS, SQL Best Practice Analyzer, and other tools. 

Alex Andrushchenko is a technical leader and architect at the SQL Server Manageability team. Besides the SQL Server and Azure SQL DB monitoring, created designs of many other SCOM Monitoring Management Packs: from software and hardware systems to appliances and cloud services.
