Microsoft SQL Database Metrics

As a tenant administrator, editor, or viewer, you can use the Microsoft SQL Database Metrics dashboard to view the number of open events and various metrics of multiple SQL servers and devices from BMC Helix Operations Management.  This information helps you to view the performance of Microsoft SQL databases and their metrics. This dashboard adds a new panel for each metric added from the filters.

The dashboard uses the BMC Helix data source and the Metric and Events query types.
