Monitoring SQL Server Databases

The Databases table provides details about all of the selected SQL Server databases within the selected instance. The information displayed in the table can be changed by selecting, from the View list, one of the options detailed in the following sections:

Overview — general information about each database.
Transactions — details about the oldest active transaction in each database.
Backup Status — details on database backups, including date and total file sizes.
Properties — the properties of the various SQL Server databases.

Overview

To refresh

Table 35. The Overview view displays general information about each of the monitored databases.

ID of the database, unique within an instance of SQL Server.

Name of the database, unique within an instance of SQL Server.

The database’s current status (for example, ONLINE, OFFLINE, RESTORING, or SUSPECT).

Provides a visual representation of the database size and space usage within each database.

The total size allocated to data files.

The total size actually used by data files in the database.

The total available data size (allocated to data files but not used).

The total size allocated to log files.

The total size actually used by log files in the database.

The total available log size (allocated to log files but not used).

The number of tables, where table type=user, which exist in the database.

The number of indexes that exist in the database.

The number of file groups that exist in the database.

The date and time when the most recent full database backup of any type took place.

The date and time when the most recent differential database backup of any type took place.

The date and time when the most recent database log backup of any type took place.

The recovery model for the database; for example, Simple, Bulk Logged, or Full.

Transactions

The Transactions view displays details about the oldest active transaction in each of the monitored databases. A transaction open for a long time may result in degraded performance.

Table 36. The Transactions view displays the following parameters:

ID of the database, unique within an instance of SQL Server.

Name of the database, unique within an instance of SQL Server.

The date and time at which the oldest active transaction in the database began.

The system process ID of the session that owns the oldest active transaction in the database.
