Host: CPU Core utilization levels are above threshold

Symptoms : Server is consuming high levels of CPU capacity – SQL is running slow Impact : Medium Slow SQL responses will degrade the user experience, resulting in poor efficiency. Expected […]

Internet Packet Loss

Alert indicates that communications with the internet either gets no response, or only gets a partial response. As well as delays experienced by users, there is the possibility of processes hanging.

Internet Latency High

A general gauge of user's access to the internet in user functions that depend on external processes via the internet - for example credit card authorization, credit checking, blockchain operation etc.

Host: Measuring Network Jitter

Jitter reports the degree of variation in latency. Higher levels of jitter are more likely to occur on either slow or heavily congested links - can also lead to data loss and corruption.

Host: Running out of memory for SQL

Reports a shortage of memory to satisfy all program needs. Steady memory availability level is essential for the server’s good functionality. Lack of system memory can cause high non-cached disk reads and writes.

Host: Page file usage

Paging File Usage indicates the size of the paging file on disk used by the operating system. Alert reports that pressure on available resources (CPU and/or memory) is forcing the system to swap pages from memory to disk, which slows all processes down.

Host: Lost packets

Alert indicates that communications with the SQL server either gets no response, or only gets a partial response. The main effect on performance comes from packet retries which can significantly load the level of network traffic.

Host: Process CPU Load

Measures the load of all the tasks that are being performed by the server. Business Intelligence applications typically take over 80%; SQL database application usage below 70% is normal. CPU usage above this number means degradation in user response times.

Host: Network Utilization

Reports when level of usage in percentage of network bandwidth for data transfer from / to server is high. High usage will cause application response times to fall.

Host: Available memory falling below threshold

Reports a shortage of memory to satisfy all program needs. Steady memory availability level is essential for the server’s good functionality. Lack of system memory can cause high non-cached disk reads and writes.

Internet Jitter High

Reliable connections consistently report back the same latency. AimBetter's alert displays when average internet latency deviates (jitters) longer than the designated time window.

Host: Measuring Network Latency

A low latency indicates high network efficiency, high latency means that the network traffic is taking longer times to complete. Network latency has a strong correlation with network jitter.

Host: Available disk space for SQL database

This measure describes the available disk space to store data in the storage device. Low free storage space can lead to a loss of information and the integrity of the programs and processes in the system.

Measuring level of disk utilization on SQL Server

This alerts means that the hard disk is too busy, therefore cannot apply the input/output operations at the pace that the programs demand. Demand for disk activity may be coming both from the operating system and SQL,

Host: Memory Available

Reports a shortage of memory to satisfy all program needs. Steady memory availability level is essential for the server’s good functionality. The more memory your server has the more cached disk reads and writes it can perform. Lack of system memory can cause high non-cached disk reads and writes.

Host: CPU Utilization

Measures the load of all the tasks that are being performed by the server. CPU usage below 70% is considered normal. Unusual levels of CPU load activities may be coming from anti-virus scans, backups, restores etc.

Host: Disk available space %

This measure describes the available disk space to store data on the hard disk. Low free storage space can lead to a loss of information and the integrity of the programs and processes in the system.
