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.
Foglight gives you the ability to customize alarm settings for your environment. This video shows how to configure and modify alarms for selected agents and rules. Categories help group related alarms, and you can edit multiple alarms at once. In addition to the default settings, Foglight allows you to set thresholds for severity levels that make sense within your environment.
This video shows several different ways Foglight helps monitor database health. Pre-built alarms show the severity of issues across the entire environment and allow you to get more information on the host or instance. Performance baselines show how the instance is operating compared to normal status for that time/day. An instance overview shows more details, including which query might be slowing performance. Finally, Foglight offers advisories that include recommendations, additional reading and next steps for issue resolution.
As companies rush to embrace the cloud, they typically overlook two very important success factors. See what these success factors are in this video showcasing how Quest can help you not only see your entire IT environment, but also save you from common mistakes made by moving to the cloud too hastily.
