Tips: How to configure a Fail-Safe Operator

If anything goes wrong in SQL Server notifications, the operators will not be notified. Therefore, the problems will not be corrected in a timely manner. However as a precaution, you can designate a fail-safe operator. It will be notified if an SQL Server Agent can’t access the system table in the MSDB database (which is where operator definitions and notification lists are stored) when all the pager notifications to designated operators are failed or when the designated operators are off duty (as defined in the pager schedule).
How to configure a fail-safe operator?

1.    First, right click on the SQL Server Agent entry in the SQL Server Management Studio to select Properties.
2.    Now, it is required to select the Alert System page from the Properties dialog box.
3.    After that, it is required to select the Enable Fail-Safe Operator check box.

4.    Then, you can use the Operator list to select an operator to designate as the fail-safe operator. Moreover, you can re-assign the fail-safe duty by selecting a different operator or you can disable the feature by clearing the Enable Fail-Safe Operator check box.
5.    After that, use the Notify Using check boxes to determine how the fail-safe operator is notified.
6.    Then, click OK.

E-mail and Net Send messages almost always reach their destination—but the people involved are not always watching their e-mail or sitting at their computer to receive Net Send messages, so the fail-safe operator is a way to guarantee notification. Although the fail-safe operator for pager notification failure might seem strange, it is a good way to ensure that alerts are handled efficiently.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
