Network utilization levels are above threshold
Impact : Medium
Slow SQL responses will degrade the user experience, resulting in poor efficiency of your organization’s operations.
Expected behavior :
There is no standard metric for network activity. Many aspects of the environment will affect network load.
This threshold measures usage level in percentage of network bandwidth transfer from / to server.
Where possible, concentrate non-SQL Server related activities onto a separate network. Also, schedule high-volume activities to time frames of lowest user demand.
If possible, log storage disks should be physically linked to the server, or over a separate network. To otherwise minimize traffic, see our recommendations regarding page file optimization here.
Faulty or inadequate hardware components, such as routers, controllers etc. with low bandwidth capabilities can significantly slow down traffic.
Investigate all hardware components, with your Network Management team.
See our recommendations regarding network latency here.
This measure of traffic is closely associated with network latency. See here.
