You can download the admin guide from thwack itself..under product forums u will find it.
Thanks for the reply,
I am not finding the admin guide under product and forums. Can you please let me know, where i can find the admin guide.
Here are a couple of suggestions from the School of Hard Knocks.
- Don't under-power your SQL server. If you can use a dedicated SQL with RAID 10, 15K X 6 spindles, or SSD. SSD rocks and is comparable in price to 15K spindle drives.
- Optimize the web engine. IDK where the post is but there is a very helpful optimization post out the somewhere. Maybe someone who knows where it is can chime in.
- Use AD groups for access. If you don't already have groups for the folks who will need access create a couple of them. One for admins and one for RO users. This is the best way to implement user profiles and automate access.
Hope this helps.

Although SQL Express can be used due to it's limitations it's advised to use a full version of SQL what other modules are you going to install besides NPM?
Nagios OS:Win 2k12 R2 DC and remote database will be SQL Express. Please suggest and share, if any document. Details like connecting SQL express DB to Nagios server. Please suggest
We are only installing NPM. Please let me know SQL express edition will be fine or we need to go with SQL enterprise edition.
Unless you are only going to be monitoring an extremely small environment you will most likely need to use a paid edition of SQL. From MS:
- Limitations :
- Microsoft SQL Server Express supports 1 physical processor, 1 GB memory, and 10 GB storage
