Optimize the Performance of SQL Server on Linux


SolarWinds SQL Sentry provides top-rated database monitoring capabilities for SQL Server on Windows and Linux.  With powerful dashboarding capabilities, users can monitor all their Windows, Linux, and heterogeneous SQL Server database server environments from within the same SentryOne monitoring client.  

SentryOne monitoring services for SQL Server on Linux include:

  • The Performance Analysis Dashboard tab for monitoring key database activities, including transactions, compilations, and recompilations; SQL Server waits, memory consumption, and database IO.
  • The Top SQL tab for viewing and analyzing highest-impact queries that can cause performance bottlenecks with SQL Server on Linux.
  • The Indexes tab for viewing index stats and analyzing index fragmentation and scheduling defragmentation tasks (only available in SQL Sentry) for improved database performance. 


Microsoft SQL Server 2017 on Linux doesn't support certain enterprise features like SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), and massively parallel processing (MPP).  Consequently, SentryOne monitoring support for these features is limited to Windows environments at present.
