In this section, we will see how to set up monitoring on the disks of SQL servers. Your SQL Servers may be utilizing your local disks for variety of reasons and it’s generally a good practice to monitor the disks, so that they don't run out of space. You can set up monitoring of the disks in the SQL Server and allow the alarm to generate alerts when a particular threshold value is exceeded. For instance, your disk size is 100GB and you want to be notified when the disk size goes below 50GB, you can set up a warning and an alert to be aware of the status of the disks. In addition, you can check the status of the disks without having to actually see the monitoring dashboard by seeing the visual cue next to the section tab (in Green/Red color). BizTalk360 will display the total available space of each of your available disks, and the currently available and used space in the disks.

At the moment, you can only enable/disable disk monitoring and cannot enable disable at individual disk level.

Setting up monitoring for disks

  1. Log in to the BizTalk360 application
  2. Click 'Monitoring' in the navigation panel
  3. Click the expand button against 'Manage Mapping' tab and select 'SQL Server' link
  4. Select the SQL Server for which you want to set up the monitoring on one of the components

  6. In the list of system resources at the top, select Disks
  7. Click Enable Monitoring button to set up monitoring for the disks. You can customize your alert to trigger a warning when the disk available space goes below certain percentage (say 10% or 20%)
  8. Click Save to save the disk monitoring information
  9. At any point, to stop monitoring, click Disable Monitoring button
