When you manage a large number of database servers you need tools that scale. You won't be able to tune individual servers, because you want to have many more servers than DBAs. You will need to debug the occasional problem, and this usually happens on servers that you otherwise ignore. This means that you need to extract and archive the values of performance counters so that you can look at them long after the problem has occurred. It is even better when you can graph and query this data. And it best when you can create alerts on changes in the values of the counters. MONyog provides some of this. It is probably able to provide all of this. This is great news.
