Update May 31, 2011 – Version 22.214.171.124 now available for download.Over 250 downloads of previously published versions.
The SQL Server DB Mirroring Management Pack discovers database mirroring components and provides probe based monitors to verify that database mirrors are operational. Optionally it verifies the roles and operating modes of mirrored databases against a Desired Configuration setting.
Use the SQL Server DB Mirroring Management Pack for:
- Monitoring the availability state of mirrored databases and witnesses.
- Monitoring if the mirrors are operating in line with a Desired Configuration definition.
- View mirrored DBs as a service components and use them for Distributed Application designs.
- Report on SQL database mirroring configuration.
- Use the objects and groups discovered to add SQL database mirroring specific rules, monitors or overrides.
The Management Pack download contains a comprehensive guide that carefully lists all prerequisites. As a supplement it also contains an override MP that works in conjunction with the Extended Microsoft SQL Server MP hosted on OpsManJam. It shows how to use the discovered objects of the SQL Server DB Mirroring MP to parameterise existing or new MPs to support DB mirrors.
