Cloud Database Native Monitoring - What You Don't Get
In this short video, we highlight the benefit of developers using Foglight to test the performance of a query before it hits production. We crossed over into a conversation on the fundamentals of DevOps - it requires cultural change, process, and people need to change. What’s the stimulus to get that change and collaboration?
Enterprise Management and Observability
Foglight goes beyond enterprise-wide monitoring with its breadth of coverage and granular reporting of workload and performance. Gain a deeper understanding of what’s happening across your entire enterprise with one centralized solution.
What makes Foglight different from other monitoring solutions? This time-sensitive solution provides organizations with advanced analytics, activity highlights, advisories, performance concerns and much more to capture a comprehensive view of the database.
With native monitoring by cloud vendors, the types of metrics available are minimal and require additional expenses or resources to build out. With Foglight, you get advanced visibility with a rich history of workloads and instances right away.
Foglight empowers DBAs across your organization to deep dive into platforms both that they’re familiar with, as well as those they’re not so familiar with. With its web console and customizable dashboard, DBAs for SQL Server, Oracle and others can easily digest information important to them.
Anthony Stephens of TransUnion explains how they use Foglight and Foglight Performance Investigator to diagnose and resolve database performance issues.
TransUnion shares how Foglight helps to maintain high levels of uptime and performance for their applications that manage 1 billion consumer files.
Proactively ensure peak performance across all your databases.

SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) is an online analytical processing and data mining tool that many organizations use for business intelligence. You can create a monitoring agent for SSAS within Foglight. Note that a SQL PI Repository server is required. This video demonstrates how to create the monitoring agent.
This quick video shows how to select and modify the sensitivity levels assigned to each agent. The sensitivity level controls which alarms are reported. For each agent, you can choose from Essential, Normal, Tuning or Performance for the sensitivity level. Normal is the default.
Foglight tracks system metrics and constantly evaluates those metrics against rules. If conditions are matched, an alarm is fired. This video gives an overview of the three types of rules and how alarms are displayed according to severity level. It also discusses how alarms are acknowledged and cleared by system operators.
