NimsoftSLM Database documentation

Because our current Nimsoft Monitoring Sever version (6.5) is out of support we decided to upgrade to UIM 8.0 in a 2-step process (6.5 -> 7.5 -> 8.0). But first on the test environment.


During upgrade no information was given if there will be changes in the database.

After the upgrade we checked the data in UMP, and everything looked fine.


Then we checked the database itself (MSSQL 2012). We found several additional tables along with ones that were removed.

Additional tables are understandable, and the removed ones seem not that too important. The only exceptions are the DN_QOS_DATA_xxxx tables.


What is their purpose? Can you maybe provide a NimsoftSLM database documentation where these infos are listed and defined?

It's important for us because we'd like to migrate data from a far more older version (4.3). We found the method to do this 4.3 -> 6.5 way, but now with the DN tables it is maybe not that simple.
