SQL Server Availability

Electronic businesses rely on information stored in databases. It is vital for companies to be able to constantly access and monitor database performance information. This makes it important for system administrators to know the status of their databases.

PRTG Network Monitor allows SQL (Structured Query Language) server monitoring and automated alerts for the most common types of SQL servers.

A good SQL Server monitoring solution offers the following benefits:

  • Increased profits: no losses caused by undetected database failures.
  • Improved customer satisfaction by providing reliable access to databases.

This SQL Server monitorig solution installs easily and its usage is intuitive. Additional features like remote management (via web browser, PocketPC, or Windows client) and notifications about SQL Server errors by email, ICQ, pager/SMS make the monitoring of SQL Servers easier.

SQL Server Performance Monitoring Made Easy

PRTG Network Monitor ensures availability of network components and databases while also measuring traffic and usage. It saves costs and time by avoiding outages, ensuring database performance, optimizing connections, and controlling service level agreements (SLAs).

With PRTG Network Monitor you can quickly and easily set up SQL Server monitoring.

PRTG Network Monitor offers individual sensors that allow you to connect and monitor MySQL, Microsoft SQL and Oracle SQL servers. These SQL Server sensors can monitor when the database accepts and processes requests. It is also possible to use custom query code to check database return values.


Slow performance and outages can impact the bottom line of your business. Continuous server monitoring enables you to find problems and resolve them before they escalate. PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful monitoring solution for monitoring availability, bandwidth, and server performance. The server monitoring tools calculate bandwidth consumption via SNMP, packet sniffing and NetFlow, track the availability of network servers and check parameters such as CPU load, memory load, free disk space, etc.

This way, they help you to:

  • Avoid performance bottlenecks and data loss
  • Offer better quality of service
  • Lower costs by buying hardware and bandwidth according to actual need
  • Raise profits by minimizing downtime
