SQL Diagnostic Manager allows multiple simultaneous status indicators for each individual database, very similar to what you see in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. You can see the status of a database in the Servers tree by expanding the associated Server tree. The status displayed matches what is shown in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio in all cases where Management Studio displays a status.

Change the default alert status level

Alerting is based on the most critical status associated with a database at the time of collection.

Note that for certain metrics, using the informational alert means that you no longer receive a warning or critical alert for events generated by that metric. Please review the situation before setting up an informational alert.

To change the default alert status level:

  1. Right-click any server in the Servers tree.
  2. Select Configure Alerts.
  3. Select Database Status from the list of alerts.
  4. Double-click any of the values on the Configuration tab.
  5. Edit each alert to associate it with the desired alert status level.
