State of Health Check

How is Your Database Performing?

Knowledge is power, and proactively determining what is causing problems, what is about to cause problems, and what is functioning at an optimal level puts you in the driver’s seat. 

Aspect's State of Health Check provides an in-depth audit of SQL Server databases across your entire environment.

  • The State of Health Scorecard summarizes configuration, backup, performace, security and stability findings in an easy to read format.
  • The accompanying State of Health Report provides additional detail, and weights findings according to criticality, so that your organization has all the information you need to move forward with a smart roadmap for remediation.

Top Reasons to Perform a State of Health Check

  • A Departure: Staff departs and takes key environment knowledge with them.
  • New Management or Staff: A "changing of the guard" occurs when management or new staff is added and you need to quickly collect and provide cross environment information.
  • A Fresh Perspective on Stubborn Issues: Since there are multiple ways to solve a problem, a fresh perspective might bring new information to the table for remediating a stubborn issue, or proactively uncovering a hidden issue.

Remote Monitoring

DB_Monitoring_Suite_Graphic.png

Monitoring of Your Entire Database Environment


We utilize our custom monitoring suite comprised of Watchdog DB Monitor, Centralized Disk Management System (CDMS), and Job Auditor to monitor and protect your data. 

Watchdog is a flexible centralized monitoring utility that detects and communicates error conditions within your database environment that standard infrastructure monitoring tools cannot detect, or cannot do well.  With Watchdog, we know if 

  • Databases are up
  • Disk or file space usage is about to be exceeded
  • Performance degradations occur
  • Missed backups occur

CDMS continually gathers and sends disk space information to WatchDog.  With CDMS, our experts can trend disk space consumption over time, and then set disk space alert thresholds that trigger warnings within Watchdog, so you never run out of space.

Job Auditor takes notification monitoring to the next level, mining large volumes of notifications to detect both failed processes AND  missed processes that failed to complete.  A single email a day summarized notifications, so that no critical alerts are missed or buried in an inbox.
