SQLServer Probe - AgentJob Failure alarming on all failed jobs


Article ID: 138076


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


We have configured SQLServer Monitoring and enabled agent_Job_failures checkpoint, this is not giving the expected alarms. 

I tried with min threshold and max threshold, but alarm count never getting reduced. 

It is generating flood of alarms and impacting UIM performance.

I have compared the alarm results with the SQL query results following the link:





Environment Details:

UIM Version 9.0.2

SQLServer - 5.42

Robot 7.96


The client had deployed an incorrect configuration package to the problem robots.


 It appears you have applied a configuration package to the probe. this had a default setting of unite = days that caused the issue. 

Once we reset the value back to unit = we were able to test and have this work as expected.
