Foglight for DB2 (Cartridge) - Deployment Guide

Deployment pre-requisites

Welcome to the Foglight for Databases Deployment Guide. This guide provides the pre-requisites for optimal deployment, to ensure the best user experience possible.

This section describes important deployment information required to monitor the leading RDBMS: Oracle®, SQL Server®, SAP ASE®, DB2 for LUW, and Azure® SQL.


There are three main components:

Foglight Management Server and Foglight Repository — Responsible for managing, alerting, and viewing the collected data. Both components can be set to run on the same machine or reside on separate machines.
Agent Manager — Hosts the monitoring database agents (also known as DB Agent) and SQL PI agents (PI repository manager agent, PI domain manager agent).
SQL PI Repository — A logical group which contains at most 3 PI databases (one for SQL Server, one for Oracle, and one for SSAS) under same SQL Server instance. Those PI databases are managed by the same SQL PI agent manager*. The total number of monitored instances in a single PI repository cannot exceed 300 instances.
NOTE: SQL PI agent manager: The agent manager that holds PI domain manager agent(s) and PI repository manager agent. It can be the same agent manager that holds DB agents, or a dedicated one.

Deployment in Centralized vs Distributed

In monitoring environments that exceed a total of 20 agents, a distributed installation is necessary:

In All-in-One installations on virtual machines (VMs), the machine is highly recommended to reserve CPU and Memory for better performance.

Once the total number of agents exceeds 20, All-in-One installations are no longer supported.

Hardware requirements

Identify your hardware requirements, which are determined by whether SQL PI is configured and by the number of monitoring agents.
