WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

If you want to remove one of your monitored database instances from DPA, you must unregister it.

If you unregister a monitored database instance, DPA stops monitoring the instance and removes all historical performance data from the repository.

  1. Click Options > Unregister.
  2. Select a database instance, and click Next.
  3. Select the database instance objects to be removed, and click Next.

    Depending on the database type, you can remove one or both of the following objects:

    • Monitoring User: You can remove the monitoring user if no other applications, including other installations of DPA, are using this user.
    • DPA Database Objects: This refers to tables that are created in the schema of the monitoring user. If you remove the monitoring user, these objects are removed since they are owned by the monitoring user. You can remove these objects if no other installations of DPA are monitoring this instance.

    You cannot remove objects on certain database types, such as read-only replicas.

  4. Confirm the unregistration information, and click Unregister Database Instance. This may take several minutes.
  5. Click Finish to complete the unregistration.
