Query a database with a monitor

I have seen a number of questions about how to run queries against a database and verify the answer. One way is to run a script inside a monitor. In this blog I wrote how to setup a script in a two state monitor. The script in this post will count number of  fields, if there are more then five, status of the monitor will be changed. Note that counting starts at 0 with fields collection.

 Const adOpenStatic = 3
Const adLockOptimistic = 3

Set oAPI = CreateObject(“MOM.ScriptAPI”)
Set oBag = oAPI.CreatePropertyBag()

Set objConnection = CreateObject(“ADODB.Connection”)
Set objRecordSet = CreateObject(“ADODB.Recordset”)

objConnection.Open _
“Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=R2B1;” & _
“Trusted_Connection=Yes;Initial Catalog=ContosoConfiguration;” & _
“User ID=CORP\Administrator;Password=;”

objRecordSet.Open “SELECT * FROM roles”, _
objConnection, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

varNo = objRecordSet.Record.Count

If varNO > 5 Then
Call oBag.AddValue(“SQL_Status”,”Error”)
Call oBag.AddValue(“SQL_Status”,”Ok”)
End If

Call oAPI.Return(oBag)
