The effectiveness of a core SQL database engine is a direct function of hardware infrastructure and operating system (OS) software. A failure or slowdown in any of these components impacts the entire system, regardless of how well you fine-tune or tweak your database.
AimBetter’s solution monitors over 100 critical Windows server system metrics covering your entire infrastructure – including network, internet connectivity, storage, CPU load, and RAM levels – to ensure a smooth-running database. Conducting regular readings, the solution pinpoints unusual patterns in real time, enabling you to take preventive action before serious damage occurs.
- Analyzes CPU/IO problems resulting from virtual system load/failure and server IO-level loads to immediately locate OS parts impacting database performance
- Monitors processes, services and installations on the server, and takes a snapshot of the CPU memory image
- Conducts enhanced Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) performance analysis
Windows Server includes two additional built-in features – Terminal Services and Operations Analyzer – to further enhance our powerful solution.
A terminal service enables businesses to centrally host applications and resources as well as publish them to remote end users, who can then access company resources from anywhere and from any device. Such monitoring is one of the database management’s most important requirements, since remote desktop services directly channel to the SQL Server most functions required by users for input, retrieval and update.
AimBetter’s Terminal Services include unique performance monitoring enabling analysis of the server’s software layer to measure individual activity load. It also aggregates, per application, each user’s processing activity to measure total CPU load and memory usage.
Terminal Services bind performance from the process to the image/software level to create a clear view. They also identify insecure connections to servers that leave an “open door” such as Any Desk or TeamViewer.
Operations Analyzer analyzes levels of CPU, memory, network and disk activity every five minutes. This enables drill-down to the file and application level that creates the activity so that you can understand the source of any system slowdown.
