Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
Virtualization and monitoring are two rapidly growing areas in the IT industry. This report deals with the monitoring of database servers using two different tools, op5 Monitor and VMware vCenter.The Swedish company op5 AB has developed op5 Monitor. This tool is now used by several major companies to monitor their network elements, Data Ductus is one of them. Ductus is at the forefront when it comes to system monitoring but are in need to expand the monitoring of their database servers. The task to find a solution that can be implemented in their production environment was therefore adopted by us.A thorough overview is composed of the theoretical parts involved in the monitoring and virtualization with VMware ESXi. A solution to monitor Microsofts database server in op5 is developed and tested, the solution is made as general as possible in order for it to easily be implemented in a production environment. A comparison between physical and virtual monitoring is reviewed and the perl program check mssql health is used to monitor interesting metrics in a database server.Sources of errors, improvements and future work are discussed and it is concluded that op5 is the superior surveillance tool compared to VMware vCenter.
