We monitor MSSQL here, using the pNSclient agent.  This lets you query any
Perfmon counter, as well as filesizes, CPU, memory, disk, etc.

pNSclient is an agent for Nagios (netsaint) but I have a query tool that
also outputs the values in MRTG format.  This is available bundled with
routers2.cgi and on my website

Let me know if you want some MRTG templates for basic MSSQL monitoring
