Spotlight on SQL Server Enterprise 11.7 - Management Pack for SCOM User Guide

SQL Server | Home Page | Background Processes Panel

The Background Processes panel provides access to the following:

Component Description

Error Log

Represents the SQL Server and SQL Agent error logs.

When scanning is enabled, Spotlight scans the SQL Server logs and raises alarms when it finds error messages that contain any of the error log alert rules. For more information, see Configure | Error Log Entries.


This button shows the state of the SQL Server Support Services.

It will raise an alarm if any installed SQL Server support service is inactive, or if problems are detected with the Windows 2000 cluster.

For example, if the SQL Server Agent service is stopped, this button will change color.

Additionally, if the SQL Server you are connected to runs on a cluster, Spotlight will raise an alarm when there are problems with the cluster (for example, if a cluster node is unavailable).

Services currently monitored are:

  • SQL Server Agent (SQLServerAgent) service
  • Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) service
  • Microsoft OLAP (MSSQLServerOLAPService) service
  • SQL Mail
  • SQL Agent Mail
  • Windows Cluster Service (MSCS)
