Can I disable a component of application Monitor Template?

The SQL application monitor has a ton of things that it monitors, however I can't edit the template and turn off specific items.

I can't even copy it, in hopes of having the option to enable/disable certain components during creation.

Is there a way, or is this a dead end?

  • This is sage advice and I set the same eyes on unknown counts

  • Thats exactly what is happening.  I don't have the exact numbers in front of me, but I know IIS Sites, App Pools, and Database servers when using AppInsight could have stupid numbers of components.  I want to say its somewhere between 20 and 40 components per App Pool/Site/Database.  I have an IIS server in the envirionment that has around 28k components on it.

    As Mesverrum mentioned below, AppInsight operates a little different than other SAM monitors.  They are really optimized calls, so its only a couple calls to the server itself that the primary server branches into the individual components.

    I've had support tell me on numerous instances that I'm way over polling capacity on my APEs, but once I point out that the majority of what they are seeing is Appinsight, they drop it and we move on with the issue at hand.

  • The Appinsight monitors can not be modified at the template level.  Once the monitor is deployed, you would have to go in and disable the individual components you do not want for that specific sam instance.
