AppInsight for SQL: Manage a specific database and its thresholds

Table of contents

Updated May 12, 2017


AppInsight for SQL monitors all databases on an SQL Server. The threshold entered at the application or template level applies to all monitored databases. However, there are cases where you do not want to monitor certain databases (such as temp and model) or, you require a specific threshold for a monitor.
