Monitoring Database Views and Tables

The views and staging table in the Windows Server AppFabric monitoring database are defined with the columns, and associate types, that they implement. These are described as generic types that are replaced by an implementation specific type for the database on which these views are implemented. The requirement is that these types can be converted to an equivalent .NET type using the ADO .NET provider for the database. The staging table and the views are installed in the default schema for the database.

noteNote
Queries or insert statements within AppFabric do not prefix with a schema. Rather, they default to the schema for the logged in user
