Database Probe Guidelines for Number of Monitored Databases/Servers

Discussion created by careyb on Nov 7, 2014

We are looking to deploy probes to monitor databases (SQL, MySQL and Oracle) and wanted to know what guidelines there are for the number of databases (and database servers) a probe can handle before additional probes are needed. I know the more we monitor for each database the more work the probe does and therefore hard guidelines are impossible to define.
