Updated MP: SQL Server

The SQL MP which had new version just last month now is updated again. The previous release had some bugs which were addressed and fixed quickly:

  • Fixed CPU Utilization Monitor
  • Fixed SQL Server seed discovery for WoW64 environments
  • Alert severity of Average Wait Time Monitor was changed to Warning, added consecutive sampling to reduce noise, threshold was changed to 250
  • Alert severity of SQL Re-Compilation monitor was changed to Warning, threshold was changed to 25. The monitor was disabled by default.
  • Minor fixes

Great job by the team behind the MP for fixing those bugs quickly. The new version you can find here.

Microsoft Monitoring Agent 2013 is available for download

Microsoft Monitoring Agent 2013 is the new SCOM agent. The latest version is published here. I can guess that this is the same version that will be shipped with System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager RTM which can hint us that probably the RTM version of SC 2012 R2 is finished.
