This guide provides the steps required to create and configure new (custom) checkpoints using the sqlserver probe. Custom checkpoints allow you to use your own preferred queries or stored procedures for database monitoring when the checkpoints provided out of the box do not satisfy your specific database monitoring requirements. This guide walks you through configuring and testing a custom checkpoint, configuring data collection (QoS), configuring alarms and alarm thresholds, and the use of restrictions on monitoring (Excludes/Includes). Note that the example used in this guide executes the new (custom) query against a specific database, not all databases.
