Microsoft SQL Server
Microsoft SQL Server metrics come packaged with the Netuitive Windows agent. Our Windows agent is a Microsoft Windows service that collects, aggregates, and publishes windows performance counters and attributes. For more information on the Agent itself as well as any plugins available, see the Windows Agent page.
There's no additional configuration necessary for the Microsoft SQL Server if you've already installed the Windows agent unless you want to add additional custom metrics to supplement the default collected metrics.
Additional Configuration Options
For information on all the additional configuration options available, see the Windows Agent page.
The SQL Server metrics are a small subset of the available Windows metrics.
