Lori Edwards explains an add-in for SQL Sentry Performance Advisor, Fragmentation Manager, aimed at helping you manage and automate index maintenance.
The promise of alerting is that it makes it possible for people to keep up with the information that matters most to them. Simple, right? But this doesn't always work.
Today I want to take a minute to talk about gaps. Not the kind where you find trendy clothes for the young folks, but the kind that you might see in a performance chart on the SQL Sentry Performance Advisor Dashboard.
SQL Sentry Performance Advisor (PA) for Windows is one of our newer product offerings, and I think one that could use a little bit of use-case clarification.
In my last post I covered the exciting new intelligent alerting features in SQL Sentry v8. Next up in the series is another huge and often requested feature: Baselining.
SQL Sentry v8 will have a system requirements change, specifically with regard to the operating system version used for both the Monitoring Service and the SQL Sentry Client. The reason for this is that we have decided to target .NET 4.5 instead of .NET 4.0. In this post I wanted to share some of the reasons for doing so.
It's tempting to insert some clever reference to everyone's favorite vegetable juice medley here, but I will refrain, for fear of diminishing what is perhaps the most significant SQL Sentry release to date!
Back in 2010, we first released SQL Sentry Plan Explorer, a free application for query tuning through deep but intuitive execution plan analysis. This post was created to provide a series of sample plans to help you learn the tool or to demonstrate it to others.
For many DBAs and other IT professionals, on-call hours are part of the job. Keeping critical servers and applications running 24/7 requires the ability to respond to problems at any time of day.

Our ultimate objective with this release of SQL Sentry Performance Advisor was to increase visibility and manageability around AlwaysOn in dramatic fashion, thereby enabling it to reach its full potential. This new functionality is so powerful, some of our clients are even using it for resource management across commodity servers, something I'm not sure the AlwaysOn creators ever envisioned. I'll delve into that in a future post, but for now, I wanted to give some insight into these features.
I wanted to talk about two new features in SQL Sentry Plan Explorer: Plan obfuscation, where you can hide sensitive information in your plans before sharing them, and custom layouts, a way to take complete control over the visual representation of your graphical plans.
