An updated Microsoft SQL Server Management Pack has been released sorta.
The Management Pack has been updated on the site.
Here are the changes.
- Fixed performance issues caused by excessive CPU utilization and script timeouts from Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) queries in the following management pack discoveries: Discover SQL Server 2005 Database Engines (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Database Engines (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (Windows Server).
- Fixed an issue where SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services and Reporting Services discoveries were not reliably discovering these objects on instances of SQL Server that did not have the Database Engine installed.
- Removed the hard-coded exception in rules and monitors that prevented the monitoring of the System, Temp, and Master databases.
- Improved the means by which database discoveries recognize autogrowth enabled settings. Database discoveries now recognize both “KB” and “%” growth settings; previously the database discoveries recognized only the “KB” growth setting.
- Corrected typographical errors in product knowledge and improved the quality of the text.
After downloading the MP I realized that the file is still the old version 6.0.6460.0. Hopefully Microsoft will fix this. I left feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know.
3/31/2009 – Updated version 6.0.6569.0, which provided a number of fixes. Refer to the MP guide for more details.
