Using FusionReactor's datasource monitoring feature? Here's a tip

Note: This blog post is from 2008. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
If you're using FusionReactor, and you set up a datasource to be monitored by it (the "JDBC wrapper" feature), did you know that you can configure it so you can see the datasource name for each query in the request details? A lot of people seem to miss it, so I wanted to point it out.

You just need to add the string:


to the end of the JDBC URL that you configure (per the instructions). For instance, for the wrapped version of my AdventureWorks SQL Server DB, I use:


That all goes on one line, of course, but I didn't want it to mess up the display in some browsers.

You can learn more about setting up the FR JDBC wrapper feature (including the simple steps on how to implement it--which have been updated in the FusionReactor 3 docs) in the Tutorial (pdf) and User Guide (pdf).

If you're not familiar with the datasource monitoring feature, I'll share more about it in a follow-up entry.
