Yes, this is possible by creating the SQL resources by hand on the agent you want to monitor the remote SQL server. The only requirement is that agent is able to make a JDBC connection to the server you want to monitor. We only auto-discover databases if the agent is installed locally on the database machine, however service discovery will work fine once the JDBC connection parameters are entered if the database is monitored remotely.
Are you looking to monitor a specific database type (e.g. Postgres, MySQL, etc) or do you just want to issue SQL queries?
