ManageEngine® SQLDBManager Plus
This section explains the availability settings that can be made in SQLDBManager Plus. To access availability Settings, click the Admin tab and click Availability Settings.
Show Monitor status as Up during Maintenance
Using Downtime Scheduler, you have the option to schedule a time period for which monitoring is not needed. If you want to show the availabilty of monitors under maintenance as Up, irrespective of their previous state, select this option.
Check for Network Availability
When the SQLDBManager Plus is out of the network or is not connected to the network, the status of all the Monitors that are currently been monitored will be shown as 'Down'. You can avoid this by enabling the 'Check for Network Availability' option.
When this option is enabled, SQLDBManager Plus will generate alarms for the unavailability of resources only if the specified host is reachable in the network. For example, let us assume that the system/host which runs the SQLDBManager Plus has been isolated from the network. Enable this option and specify a hostname in the network (preferably not the hostname where SQLDBManager Plus runs). Now, SQLDBManager Plus tries to ping that machine for its availability in the network. If not available, alarms are not generated and resources are not shown as down.
You can also specify the IP of your routers, gateways, etc., to check the system/host which runs the SQLDBManager Plus is present in the network.
