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.
The new version of Plan Explorer PRO 2.5 is focused on making these big plans easier to manage, and it does so using a variety of techniques that you have been asking for, which I will cover below.
When it comes to SQL Sentry, we love for you to upgrade for your benefit and ours, and we really work hard to make it easy to do so. So here are some great reasons to upgrade your SQL Sentry environment to the most recent release just as soon as you are able to.

Since releasing SQL Sentry v7 with Fragmentation Manager in May, we've been hard at work on v7.2.
It's hard to believe that we released the first version of Plan Explorer almost two years ago! The acceptance it has seen by the SQL Server community during that time has been amazing, and tremendously gratifying for all of us here at SQL Sentry.

After what has been a relatively smooth beta, we're going gold with SQL Sentry v7 today!
