Monitoring the Spaghetti

By  Dec 16, 2008

Topics: SQL Server, Data

With the new Management Data Warehouse in SQL Server 2008 and all the new meta-data, I get a lot of monitoring out of the box. But sometimes I need more...

Like most installations, I have a Spaghetti patchwork of files moving around, database ops and so on. What I've been doing is extending the MDW database in 2008 to store the movement track and so on - and then I run reports across that. Sometimes it's nice to use what you already have!
