SQL Server counters along with thresholds values

Hello Folks,

I need to work on threshold values for SQL Server counters (please find attached .xlsx file here). Could you please assist me in case I can increase threshold values with respect of each counter?

FYI, we are using a tool ('Kaseya') to check performance for each counter and column 'C' i.e. 'Parameter Value' in .xlsx defined by 'Kaseya' by default. For e.g., value in 'C' column is 30000/120000 then 30000 = Warning & 120000 = Critical.

Could you please assist me to increase/decrease threshold values for each counter along with Warning & Critical values & brief description for each counter?

Please note, we have SQL Server 2012, Enterprise Edition (64-bit).

Best Regards,
Mohit Pandit

Hi,

Check out this:

Given how little master is used, some of your counters such as master size and log utilisation seem of little benefit.

Hi David,

I took a look over it and it looks like description. BTW, it is useful.
But, is it possible to have your inputs for values of counter Or any formula to calculate counter values so that we can define stages for "Warning" and "Critical".

Thanks

Hi,

What you are asking is perhaps better described by running baselines before the system gets into difficulty, and then keep the baseline updated every month or say at least every year. Then there is something to compare a problem set of numbers to.
