Are you looking for a SQL performance monitoring tool to help you monitor and troubleshoot SQL Server database performance issues and alert you to problems?

There are so many options available and, of course, if you can’t find a tool that has everything you need, you might find yourself buying more than one product.

Our suite of SQL tools is packed with functionality and with the lowest overhead in the industry. Check out why SentryOne is the best choice for your SQL Server environment!
In this four-part guide, Kevin Kline, Principal Program Manager at SentryOne, walks you through the process of identifying and resolving SQL Server performance problems using SQL Server’s native tools.
Learn how to implement native monitoring and alerting on your databases, determine if the issue is inside SQL Server, narrow the focus of your troubleshooting efforts to only the most important wait stat categories, and correlate wait stats with event details to identify the root cause of the performance problem.
This easy-to-use SQL tool allows you to see all of your most important metrics on one screen and easily track down pesky performance issues.
SQL Sentry allows you to jump to the specific dates and times when you know your servers were performing poorly and see exactly what was happening, or you can monitor your servers in real-time.
Combining baselines with alerting gives you the most complete change management and notification system in the industry.
Event Calendar offers a clear and concise view of all of your server event schedules. You can catch scheduling issues that may impact your server instantly in real-time, historically or in the future, and just drag and drop them into other time slots as needed.Event Calendar allows you to take control of long-running events, failed events, content and schedule overlap to remedy problems before they even arise.
Like Performance Analysis, Event Calendar provides a comprehensive alerting system that provides response actions to runtime, performance conditions and event status. Notifications can also be generated for Windows tasks, SQL Server Agent
You can even create job chains and specify dependencies and workflows that involve SQL Agent Jobs and Windows tasks. Chain levels are limitless as are the jobs and tasks per chain level.
Make sound decisions on when and how you should defragment with Fragmentation Manager. Create environment-wide schedules and automate index defragmentation operations.
You can customize the schedule as well as other elements such as instances, databases, and tables to make defragmenting easier than ever.
With multiple concurrent operations, defragmentation is even faster. You can view your wasted space for disk and buffer at both a table and index level via historical charts.
Stay as informed as you want when it comes to the status for your defrag process with notifications. Reports allow you to drill down to the index level to quickly diagnose problems.
With the free SentryOne Plan Explorer tool, you can see more of your plans with zoom controls and an advanced layout algorithm. Identify costly operations and resource utilization with color coding and the plan diagram.
Focus on a particular metric without having to search for it with the statements tree. Spot costly scan operations, as well as discrepancies in actual versus estimated row counts with the plan tree and Top Operations tab.
The Join Diagram tab shows the underlying tables, and you can easily see the relationship between tables that are involved in the plan and reorganize the layout as necessary with a simple drag and drop. Try the free SentryOne Plan Explorer here.
