Here's what your customers can do with SQL Sentry Essentials:
SQL Sentry Essentials Performance Analysis Dashboard
View the highest-impact queries on the Top SQL tab, including running queries, completed queries, procedure stats, and query stats. You can also see query execution plan diagrams and query history.
Stop the deluge of meaningless notifications with Advisory Conditions, which help you watch for the circumstances that lead to performance problems and proactively prevent trouble before it starts.
Not a SQL query expert? Not a problem. SentryOne Plan Explorer—included in SQL Sentry Essentials—helps you quickly troubleshoot queries to improve SQL Server database performance. With Plan Explorer, you can conduct index analysis, replay queries to see which operators are placing the most load on the system, and conduct actual plan recosting.
SQL Sentry Essentials deadlock graph
Quickly address some of the most challenging SQL Server performance killers—blocking and deadlocks. The Blocking tab displays all SQL Server blocks that occur during a specified time range in a hierarchical format, showing the relationships between all blocking and blocked SPIDs in a blocking chain. The Deadlocks tab shows real-time and historical deadlocks in your environment, including a deadlock graph that helps you quickly identify problem areas.
