Hello, id like to use Solarwinds monitoring while I performance test software. I am trying to automate this process and am wondering if it possible to script the following:
-Register a DB for monitoring
-UnRegister a DB for monitoring
-Update the DB Instance name (to save the DB metrics for later down the road)
If its not possible to script is it possible to create a USER with admin rights to only specific DBs to register/unregister for monitoring, etc.
We are actively working on the ability to register and un-register databases for monitoring via script. I'm not clear on your follow-up question about creating a user... Perhaps you would like to have a call to discuss?
Thanks for your response. Is there an expected release date for reg/unreg for monitoring via scripting?
As for my USER question:
You can give read or write permissions for a specific DB (dbhost1, dbhost2, 192.168.0.5, etc) to a user currently.
But I am wondering if you can assign register or unregister permissions to a specific user for a specific host/DB.
if you want to have a call let me know how to contact you
Unfortunately, we have a policy of not promising release dates so I can't give you such an answer. I just wanted you to know that it's already being worked on. I'll email you to set up a call. I'll use the email on your profile here. 🙂
This is still on our roadmap, don't have a delivery date associated with this feature. I'll reach out to you to discuss details to make sure we are covering your use cases?
I am curious as well.
I am using Amazon Web Services to automate the creation of SQL Servers, Single nodes and Clusters. In my script builds, I would like to add the new severs into DPA, 1 at a time. Can you provide a script to do that. If not, is there an import file I can manipulate, and then automate in import of the file into DPA.
Let me know,
Hi Brian Flynn - I'm really interested in being able to script the register\unregister and connection credentials update for monitored DBs in DPA v10.0.352. Please drop me a line so we can talk about how we might make this work. Thanks - Bronwyn.
