MS SQL Server: Cache Hit Ratio

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents Windows
This check monitors the cache hit ratio counters as reported by the MSSQL server.

The check has been developed with MSSQL Server 2008 R2 but should work with other versions too.

This check needs the Checkmk mssql.vbs -plugin installed in the agent. Please refer to the online documentation for how to install that plugin.


The MSSQL instance name, counter name and object name (like the tablespace name) are used for the item.


One service is created for each available cache hit counter. This might be dedicated to tablespaces but also MSSQL server internal parts like the "Buffer Manager".
