Database server (MySQL, MS SQL, ODBC) Monitoring

The program allows you to monitor network MS SQL, MySQL, and ODBC databases.

The “MS SQL Server”, “MySQL”, and “ODBC” checks allow monitoring the state of the respective DBMS and alert when malfunctions in their operation are detected. The check algorithm consists in attempting to connect to the databases with the specified authentication parameters periodically. If the DBMS returns the successful connection result, the check is considered passed.

Moreover, the program can run arbitrary SQL queries, get the results, and analyze the returned values.

The client DBMS library libmySQL.dll is necessary for the successful operation of the “MySQL” check. One of its versions is distributed along with the application. It can be located either in the Windows folder or in the application's folder.

To enable the “MS SQL Server” check, the computer must have the client part of that DBMS. The application supports both Windows and custom authentication by specified login and password.
