First up, I'm a total newb at Performance Monitoring. I'm looking to set up central performance monitoring of some boxes.
- 2K3 TS ( Monitor General OS Perf & Session Specific Counters )
- 2K8 R2 ( XenApp 6 = Monitor General OS Perf & Session Specific Counters )
- File Server ( Standard File I/O )
My ultimate aim is to get as many counters/information, without impacting the clients session experience at all. Including counters specific to their sessions.
I was thinking it logging directly to a SQL on another server, instead of a two part process of blg file then relog to sql.
Would that work ok? Does anyone know the overhead of going straight to SQL from the client?
I've searched around a bit, but havent found so much information it can be overwhelming.
