The SQL Sentry Event Calendar is a capability that combines both historical and future SQL Server and Windows event data in a visual, Outlook-style display. With the Event Calendar, you can identify and fix potential conflicts between multiple events—such as SQL Server jobs or Windows scheduled tasks—competing for the same resources, which can slow database performance.
Managing scheduled events in your database environment is a challenge that can quickly burn through time and resources. Microsoft Management Studio doesn’t provide an easy way to see scheduled SQL Server jobs or send notifications when tasks take longer than expected.
As a workaround, you can extract relevant information from the SQL Server Agent Job History and import it into Outlook. But wouldn’t you rather have a solution that automates this process for you?
The SQL Sentry Event Calendar answers that call.
The most comprehensive SQL Server event management solution on the market, the SQL Sentry Event Calendar gives you the details you need in a visual format so you can easily identify and address potential event conflicts.
The SQL Sentry Event Calendar shows historical and future SQL Server and Windows event data in an Outlook-style calendar.
SentryOne Event Calendar is a centralized event log management capability that visually displays events across all monitored SQL Server instances and helps you automate workflows so you can proactively improve performance. The Event Calendar shows you Windows and SQL Server events in a familiar, Outlook-style calendar. With the Event Calendar, you can:
The Event Calendar offers powerful filtering capabilities. You can filter calendar events to see, for example, only events associated with SQL Server deadlocks. You can set which event sources and types appear on the calendar.
With the Event Calendar, you can track the runtime for monitored SQL Server agent jobs. You can compare runtimes for different server instances—for example, when a job will run after a cluster failover. You can also set up Event Chains, which consist of the series of SQL Server Agent jobs or Windows-scheduled tasks running on the same server, or different servers. With Event Chains, you can automate a series of events that need to follow a specific sequence.
You can also use SQL Sentry Advisory Conditions with the Event Calendar to set automated notifications for your monitored tasks and jobs so you’ll know when database server runtime thresholds have been met or failures take place.
