Foglight Performance Analysis for SQL Server Micro Workshop (Scope Oriented)

This workshop is specifically geared toward the seasoned DBA who is already familiar with Foglight Performance Analysis on SQL Server (FPASS). In order to get the full value out of FPASS with the least amount of time, the installation needs to be done right the first time, which is exactly what this workshop prepares the DBA to do. The client DBA will work closely with our FPASS expert to examine the company’s FPASS goals and database environment, and to create a customized installation overview including the proper sizing for the FPASS middleware and Long Term Repository (LTR) that will help ensure a trouble-free deployment.

Approach & Activities 

The consultant will contact the client DBA to arrange a time for the Workshop to begin (NOTE: 5 business days notice are needed to reschedule).

Interview Goals for FPASS

  • Our FPASS expert will interview the DBA in order to fully understand exactly what the current challenges are, how many servers they are seeking to monitor and to make a recommendation on the best installation configuration.

Architecture Review

  • Review current SS Architecture with the DBA (i.e. configurations, versions, OS version, etc.) to help ensure any “gotchas” are identified.
  • Discuss and review the installation preparation list.
  • Examine current versions of the SQL Server instances and their operating systems to be monitored to ensure they are supported.

Site-Specific Documentation

  • Create a customized installation overview highlighting the recommended architecture, proper configuration, and deployment strategy.

Time Allocation

  • Interview: 30 minutes
  • Architecture Review: 30 minutes
  • Installation Overview Document: 60 minutes
