I need to monitor some of the metrics for SQL Server 2K. It seems the only way to get alerts out is via SMTP or via a netbios name (unless you install notification services and jump through a bunch of hoops). i was wondering if anyone has set up a procedure of receiving passive checks via email perhaps? Or any other ideas for getting the performance counters from w2k3 into nagios would be appreciated.
PS- I thought about the SNMP route, but I can’t seem to locate info on translating perf counters to OIDs, if such a resource even exists.
