How to use Stored Procedures with ‘write database’?

EventReporter, MonitorWare Agent and WinSyslog support stored procedures in their ‘write database’ actions. This option is supported for Microsoft SQL Server only. With other database systems, it might work, but Adiscon does not guarantee it.

Stored procedures are used just like database tables. The main difference is that instead of the table name, the stored procedure name is provided and instead of field names, parameters are provided. An example configuration looks like this:

The field order is relevant. Fields will be passed in that order as stored procedure arguments. In the sample above, “Message” becomes sp argument 1 and “Priority” argument 2. Of course, users need to supply the actual stored procedure. The configuration above could be used with a stored procedure like this:

Please note that processing within the stored procedure is the user’s responsibility. Most importantly, a stored procedure should not take too long to execute, because this might affect overall product performance.
