The SQL 2000, 2005, and 2008 MP’s have been updated. If you arent running the latest version, you should give serious consideration to getting this tested in your lab environments, and then moved into production.
Changes in this release, from 6.0.6460.0:
- Fixed performance issues caused by excessive CPU utilization and script timeouts from Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) queries in the following management pack discoveries: Discover SQL Server 2005 Database Engines (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Database Engines (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (Windows Server), Discover SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (Windows Server).
- Fixed an issue where SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services and Reporting Services discoveries were not reliably discovering these objects on instances of SQL Server that did not have the Database Engine installed.
- Removed the hard-coded exception in rules and monitors that prevented the monitoring of the System, Temp, and Master databases.
- Improved the means by which database discoveries recognize autogrowth enabled settings. Database discoveries now recognize both “KB” and “%” growth settings; previously the database discoveries recognized only the “KB” growth setting.
- Corrected typographical errors in product knowledge and improved the quality of the text.
These are some pretty significant updates. Go get it.
