Database Performance Monitoring
Checkmk enables you to see what's currently running on each of your database instances.
Monitor database attributes that are critical to your business operations and visualize them on a custom dashboard:
Oracle - Checkmk supports monitoring databases starting from version 10.2. Use it to monitor multi-tenant
architectures, Exadata, container-based databases and much more.
MSSQL Server - Monitor MSSQL Server starting with Windows Server 2008 R2 and get detailed info on resource metrics (e.g. data- &
logfiles), performance data (e.g. cache hit ratio) and other parts of your databases.
Take a pro-active approach and optimize Microsoft SQL Server performance with ease.
Streamline access by using 'trusted authentication', so no user/password needs to be created on the SQL Server instance.
Use separate services of backup type for each tablespace and set specific levels for each backup type. Understand
how application performance is affected by getting detailed info on metrics such as:
Locks per batch and locks per second
Cache hit ratio
Transactions per second
Size of data- and logfiles

The whole Checkmk environment has a very mature, stable foundation of
supported checks and performance counters. Yet it grows almost on a daily
Support for new systems is being implemented very often and
