Argent Advanced Technology 1304-L and above


Friday, 3 May 2013


Argent Advanced Technology has been enhanced with a new Rule ‘Powershell Script Rules‘ in Argent for SQL Server to check regularly for any cluster failover

Technical Background

If a cluster is unbalanced, instances can contend for memory and performance can degrade severely. It is recommended to check regularly for failover and if the instance is on its preferred node

Note: This does require PowerShell 2.0 and that the target nodes have ‘Failover Clustering’ installed
