This update adds support for Case Sensitive servers, which had been requested by quite a few people.
Also added an Orpahned Users section to the Health Report. This can be turned on/off in the AlertSettings table.
This update fixes a big bug for users who upgraded from a previous version of dbWarden. There were missing entries for LogFile and TempDB alerts for MinFileSizeMB. This was preventing the usp_CheckFiles from reporting any Log file or TempDB growth!
Running this update will make sure these records exist in the AlertSettings table (There are also defaults in place in case these records don't exist, the alerts will still work).... read more
A few big features and many bug fixes in this release. Refer to the Wiki for the complete changelog.
The biggest part of this release is the addition of sp_Sessions, replacing sp_Query. sp_Sessions is a complete rewrite from sp_Query (which was a temporary workaround after removing integration with another utility).
The QueryHistory table has been expanded to collect the new data that sp_sessions gathers.... read more
There are a bunch of bug fixes and a couple big changes are in this release.
Blank HealthReports and errors in the Deadlock section are hopefully a thing of the past!
The biggest change was new triggers on the DatabaseSettings table.
When you INSERT a record into this table and SchemaTracking is set to 1, the SchemaChangeLog table and Database trigger will automatically be installed.
When you UPDATE the SchemaTracking column to 1, the SchemaChangeLog table and Database trigger will automatically be installed if they don't already exist.
When you UPDATE the SchemaTracking column to 0, the Database trigger will automatically be dropped if it exists. The SchemaChangeLog table will remain for historical data preservation.
When you DELETE a record in DatabaseSettings, it will drop the Database trigger.... read more
A lot of fixes and a few enhancements are in this release.
Read through the change log, and be sure to note that all existing jobs named "dba_*" will be dropped in this script!
Thanks to everyone for their help in finding bugs/fixes and for your suggestions!!
dbWarden 2.3.9 has been released! A lot of fixes in the health report and reporting of tempDB and Log file growth. Thanks to Volker.Bachmann and Matt Monroe for their work!
Note - There is a new proc, usp_CheckFilesWork. It helps simplify reporting on tempDB and log file growth
dbWarden 2.3.8 is available for download
Please note, you do not need to drop your existing database to run updated versions. The script will make any necessary schema changes to your existing database.
The arithmetic overflow issue is resolved. dbWarden 2.3.7 is available for download.
A release with bug fixes will be along shortly. We are currently addressing the arithmetic error encountered in the usp_FileStats proc which affects usp_Checkfiles and rpt_HealthReport.
dbWarden 2.3.5 is now available! Please note, we changed the default database name from "dba" to "dbWarden"
There are also a few table changes, but the script contains safe alters to correct existing installations.
Please let me know if you encounter any issues. We tested on 2005, 2008R2 and 2012 SP1 with databases up to 1TB.
We released a script to drop all objects created by dbWarden. This script will NOT drop any databases.
We've published an updated version of dbWarden which address critical issues that people found today. The updated script is available now for download, which is version 2.3.2
