As a SentryOne partner, you’ve probably encountered situations in which a customer needs essential SQL Server monitoring functionality, but doesn’t need all the bells and whistles of our flagship (and top-rated) SQL Sentry product.

Great news: SentryOne has released SQL Sentry Essentials, a new edition that includes the most frequently used capabilities for monitoring, diagnosing, and optimizing SQL Server databases. Priced at $995 per license, and limited to 5 targeted SQL Server instances, SQL Sentry Essentials is perfect for companies that need to improve SQL Server performance, but don’t need all the features that matter most to larger environments.

SQL Sentry Essentials is no lightweight. It packs in a powerful set of capabilities, giving data pros the ability to:

  1. View essential real-time performance metrics in the Performance Analysis dashboard
  2. Identify high-impact queries that are slowing performance with our Top SQL feature
  3. Use proactive notifications, Advisory Conditions, to prevent performance problems
  4. Analyze SQL Server blocking and deadlocks
  5. View Windows resource metrics

This list encompasses some of our most crucial capabilities for troubleshooting common SQL Server performance problems. For smaller companies—or large organizations that have specific environments they need to monitor—SQL Sentry Essentials fits a distinct need, providing crucial information that helps data pros find and fix performance problems in their environments.
