New in this Release

Foglight for SQL Server version contains the following new features and updates:

  • A new drilldown called HADR was created. The following panels were moved to this drilldown from the Services drilldown:
    • Mirroring
    • Log Shipping
    • Cluster

In addition, the HADR drilldown contains the new Always On panel.

  • Added the possibility to control the refresh rate of the Cluster panel, which now resides under the HADR drilldown.
  • An indication was added to the QuickView panel to show whether the selected instance is cluster aware.
  • Added the option to exclude files that are in Read Only state from firing the File Group Utilization alarm. This option is defined using Global Administration > Alarms > edit File Group Utilization.
  • Utilization alarms are now invoked for a file group instead of per specific files. As a result, the alarms File Group Utilization and Log Files Utilization replace the following alarms:
    • Dynamic Data File Growths Remaining
    • Dynamic Log File Growths Remaining
    • Fixed Data File Used
    • Fixed Log File Used

Foglight for SQL Server can be run side-by-side with the agent-based SQL Server cartridges (2000 and 2005), but is intended as a functional replacement for these cartridges.
Foglight for SQL Server is an n-tier application, which leverages a web-based user interface to ensure having complete visibility into the SQL Server infrastructure wherever an Internet connection is available.

This version of Foglight for SQL Server is compliant with Quest StealthCollect version 7.0.4x.
