Creating New SQL Groups
This section explains how you can create a new Monitor Group. A monitor Group is particularly useful for grouping the resources of a location say the resources available in sales office or for grouping the resources used by a business application.
SQLDBManager Plus provides two types of monitor groups - Monitor Group and Web Application Group. The steps to create a Monitor group are explained below. To create a Database Group, refer this link.
To create a new Monitor Group, follow the steps given below:
Click New Monitor Group.
Provide a Name for the Monitor Group. This is mandatory and only alphanumeric characters, dashes (-), underscores (_), periods (.), and spaces ( ) are allowed.
Provide any Description, if required.
Under Advanced Options, Select the Owner from the list of users created. Refer User Administration topic for more information on the different roles of users.
Operator if associated as an owner will have Read Only Access to that particular Monitor Group alone.
Select the location for associating the monitor group to World Map Business View. Else by clicking on 'Add Location', google map opens up. Here you can add and select custom locations.
Click Finish to create the Monitor Group and to add Monitors later.
Creating a Sub-Group within a Monitor Group
By using this option, you can create a Monitor Sub-Group within a Monitor Group (a Monitor Group within a Monitor Group). Sub-Groups help better organization of your SQL resources. With Sub-Groups, you can capture advanced dependencies in your infrastructure. You can group clustered databases in a single Sub-Group.
To create Sub-Group
Inside the Monitor Group Details page, click on New Sub-Group link under SQL Group Actions on the left or under More Actions at the bottom.
Give the Sub-Group name and the description.
Click on 'Create Sub-Group'.
Then you can associate the desired monitors to the Sub-Group.
Currently, by default, six levels of Sub-Groups can be created for a Monitor Group.
