Whitepaper : How Users of a Performance Monitoring Tool Can Benefit From an Inventory Management Tool
Database administrators must monitor their databases for factors such as availability, health, and performance. However, monitoring also has costs associated with it that may exceed the benefits it provides. One solution to this problem is to use an inventory management tool besides a performance monitoring tool, since an inventory management tool performs less monitoring than an performance monitoring tool with a corresponding reduction in cost. And it is often better to perform limited health monitoring than no monitoring at all.
Read this whitepaper to learn how users of a performance monitoring tool can benefit from an inventory management tool with light health monitoring.
