Database monitoring in one consolidated view.

Ensure consistent service levels across multi-platform database environments, even when you use native or third-party tools.


 

 

Foglight for Cross-Platform Database Environments enables you to consolidate and standardize database performance management across your diverse environments. Experience deep, complete integration across database platforms that promote collaboration, improve service levels and reduce costs.

Foglight for Cross-Platform Database Environments supports Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, and Sybase databases.
Benefit from these key features with Foglight for Cross-Platform Database Environments:

Global view
Resolve performance issues across database platforms by determining your most critical problems and taking immediate action.

Built-in intelligence
Get integrated management and performance views that allow you to understand your enterprise’s health and activity. Also receive pop-up advice with correlated workflows.

Adaptive baselines
Receive alerts about deviations from normal activity, as well as track performance using automatic detection and calculation of normal ranges for all metrics.

Automatic instance discovery
Use automatic instance discovery or specific hosts to deploy Foglight capabilities rapidly and painlessly. Manually add instances, as needed.

Rich historical data
Resolve performance issues by navigating through diagnostics and alarm data from any drill-down screen.

Alarm workflow
Search for past solutions, set up blackouts, and manage and annote your alarms.

Easy integration
Integrate your other end-to-end enterprise monitors seamlessly.

Wait-state analysis
Determine the location and cause of waits by diagnosing your wait statistics.

Wizard-driven installation
Add database monitoring to your existing infrastructure or configure Foglight as a standalone solution with this powerful wizard.

Drag-and-drop reporting
Use the data collected by Foglight to develop customized views and reports.
  • The Foglight Database Cartridges must be installed onto an already running Foglight Management Server, and requires that the Foglight Agent Manager be installed on all the hosts that you want to monitor.
    To learn about the system requirements for these components and for information about hardware requirements for specific platforms, refer to the Foglight Release Notes and Foglight System Requirements and Platform Support Guide.

    Hardware Requirement

    Oracle
    It is recommended that customers running large deployments (that is, with more than 50 Oracle instances) should consult with the Foglight for Oracle Managing Oracle Database Systems - Hardware Sizing Guide.

    SQL Server
    Customers running large deployments (above 50 instances) should consult with the Foglight for SQL Server sizing assistant.

    Foglight for SQL Server requires WMI access for monitoring Windows Operating system metrics on the various SQL Server dashboards. Ensure that the WMI and Remote Registry services are started prior to creating the agents and throughout the monitoring process. Firewall usage requires taking further steps to ensure connection to WMI, as detailed in the known issues section under Connection to WMI.

    Automatic Grant Scripts

    The following objects are created when you run the automatic grant script using the auto discovery process:
