Setting up SQL DM for the first time

When folks are setting up the tool for the first time, do you enter all nodes for AlwaysOn clusters and failover clusters or just the AGL or virtual SQL name?  Just trying to determine whether monitoring all nodes is valuable or if it is a waste of licenses.

  • Short answer: all nodes.
    Long answer: You won't actually be monitoring AG failover or be able to compare performance between nodes otherwise. You need to license all nodes regardless. If any nodes are purely used for failover and unused otherwise then your sales rep should be able to help you acquire extra licenses.
