Monitor metrics

The Monitor collects and stores metrics from databases, including, but not limited to:

  • Whether the resource is running.

  • Whether the computer that the resource is running on is running properly and is connected to the network.

  • Whether the resource is listening and processing requests.

  • Whether there are any obvious problems such as long running queries or blocked users.

The rate at which metrics are collected is determined by the collection interval settings that are set by administrators. See Collection intervals.

Which metrics are collected and what thresholds should be used to issue alerts are determined by the metric settings that are set by the administrators. See Specify metrics to collect.

Displaying metrics

The Monitor display is automatically refreshed every minute. You can change the refresh the interval by clicking User Settings. This setting is independent of the collection interval rate for a resource, which specifies how often the Monitor collects metrics from the resource being monitored.

To set the refresh rate
  1. Click User Settings in the top, right corner.

  2. Set a time for the Refresh Interval. The default is one minute.

  3. Click OK.

When you click Refresh Data on the Monitoring tab, the Monitor retrieves and displays the latest metrics.

To refresh metrics

When you press F5, the Monitor reloads the web browser and retrieves and displays the metrics that the Monitor has collected to date.
