SQL Server Service Usage
Determining SQL Server service usage is challenging. It is not uncommon to hear stories of hundreds, and sometimes thousands of active SQL Server instances, configured to run in a variety of virtualized and clustered modes, where IT procurement is unable to determine whether these systems are actually used. Staff churn and outsourcing makes the process almost impossible.
SQL Server Usage Detection
Asset Vision can remotely detect activity on any targeted instance of SQL Server. The information provided by SQL Server usage detection enables the rapid identification of opportunities to reconfigure or retire a SQL Server instance. In conjunction with the ability to determine precise license metrics and costs, this information can help reduce ongoing operational expenses.
