SQL TCP Availability service
The SQL TCP Availability service monitors the availability of the port on which the MS SQL Server application runs. The availability of the port, which is determined by the service testing the port's connectivity, indicates that the MS SQL Server application is running. This service also measures the DNS resolution and the round trip time of the initial connection request and response. The availability results of the TCP service are then reflected on the status dashboard for the SQL TCP Availability service.
