SQL Phone Home: Teaching Your SQL Servers to Call for Help


March 19, 2016 by Mike Hillwig

I’ve worked in quite a few shops that have differing views on SQL Server monitoring. A lot of this involves creating scripts and SQL Agent jobs that fire alerts. The problem is that these tend to become noisy. So I’ve come up with a “see something, say something” methodology.

If you’ve ever ridden the New York City subway, you’ve probably heard the “If you see something, say something” phrase. It’s what I’m modeling this after.

As I go through this presentation, I start with a premise and then build on it. I start with basic alerts and then go through looping through your data to build a more complex alert. Rather than than describe it in a blog, just play with my scripts and see what I do.

You can find the scripts here: sqlphonehome

  • I think that the best way would be to start out with the AGPL version and then upgrade to the enterprise version if your network is getting enough players. As long as you are using the AGPL version of Cubeia Poker you have to make the source available, which means that any moocfiiatidns to the poker source have to be made public. This is probably ok when starting up, but if you start to get some serious traction you probably want to be able to develop the poker in your own direction without sharing the code, i.e. switch to a commercial license.

И еще один вопрос (не совсем по теме): у Пушкина в «ÃÂ¡ÃÂºÃÂ°ÃÂ·ÃÂºÃÂµ о мертвой царевне и…» есть такая строка: «ÃÂžÃ‘‚ зеленого вина отрекалася она». Что такое зеленое вино? Молодое? Я уже несколько лет задумываюсь.19cbbb

  • Using the term “Hispanic”, who exactly is being counted? Hispanic Carribean Mulattos and blacks? Mexican and Central American mestizos and Indians? White, European Spaniards? Using an ethnic group as a racial category is both quite odd and misleading. In fact, the “Asian” category may be no longer used because of so much Indian immigration.

  • Good to see Marco properly respected by everyone. I feel terrible for his family and girlfriend but they have been amazing through all this. I wish I could hear the tribute at Valencia for him. That’s going to sound insane.
