What is the new Database Structure for MonitorWare Agent 4.x?

The Database Structure for MonitorWare Agent 4.x is almost the same as that of the older versions with the exception of SystemEventsProperties Table which is new in this new Database schema. In this new version, what the agent does is that it parses the message field and takes out some known parameters and store them in the form of name value pairs in the SystemEventsProperties Table as a Foreign Key. This means that one row in the SystemEvents Table can have multiples entries (in the form of name value pairs) in the SystemEventsProperties Table.

What are the advantages of this new Database Structure for MonitorWare Agent 4.x?

Since most of the important information about any event is present in the message content and since the new MonitorWare Agent parses out this information and stores them in the form of name value pairs in SystemEventsProperties Table, the biggest advantage of this new schema is the ability of defining more meaningful and powerful Filters. In addition to this, it will also give Adiscon an opportunity to generate more intelligent reports (for MonitorWare Console) for analysis purposes.
