Foglight for Azure SQL Database (Cartridge) 5.9.5.20 - Deployment Guide

SQL PI configured

SQL PI is available only for Oracle, SQL Server and SQL Server BI (Analysis services). These tables define the Hardware requirements for each server based on the number of monitoring agents

After locating your hardware requirements in each table, ensure that you complete the manual JVM Setting configuration as described in:

RAM*- for a virtual machine the memory reservation is highly recommended for better performance.

Hard Drive Space* - the disk RPM is 15K. For 100 DB agents or above, RAID 5 disk (IOPS is above 1.2K) is required if the performance is downgraded.

Raw Data* - raw performance data which is stored in 1-minute SQL PI tables.

Long-Term Data* - the low granularity data roll-up from raw data. Long-term (non 1-minute) data is stored in the primary filegroup in the SQL PI Repository. It is highly recommended to store database transaction log and temp database in a different disk with long-term data for better disk IO.

Transaction Log* - The frequency of the transaction log backup job is 2 hours.

All-in-One Installation

In the All-in-One installation, the Foglight Agent Manager is embedded. The Foglight Repository and SQL PI Repository are in the same SQL Server instance.

Manual configuration requirement for SQL PI Repository

Log in to the SQL Server through SSMS client. Edit the Maximum server memory in Server Properties dialog. For SQL PI Agents number less than 50, set the Maximum SQL Server Memory to 16384 MB. For All-in-One installation, refer to Table 4 row Maximum SQL Server Memory. For others, refer to Table 3 row Maximum SQL Server Memory.

Edit the server.config file located under the <Foglight installation directory>\config directory.

For 4096MB, add the following lines:

server.vm.option0 = "-Xms4096m";

server.vm.option1 = "-Xmx4096m";

Edit the baseline.jvmargs.config file located under the <Agent Manager installation directory>\state\default\config\ directory

For 2048MB, add the following lines:

vmparameter.0 = "-Xms2048m";

vmparameter.1 = "-Xmx2048m";

For number of agents > 50, edit these settings:

Data submission channel — edit the fglam.config.xml file located under the <Agent Manager installation directory>\state\default\config\ directory
Number of OS connections — edit the baseline.jvmargs.config file located under the <Agent Manager installation directory>\state\default\config\ directory
