IDERA SQL Diagnostic Manager for SQL Server

If you have several SQL servers and don't have a lot of time or resources to constantly monitor them, SQLdm will be very helpful. For one or two servers, it might be overkill. All of our servers are virtual, so having a tool that can monitor host metrics as well as guest metrics is a plus as well.

Cons

DbVisualizer

  • When exporting databases to jpg or png image, it should be possible to print banner type without losing quality and legibility
  • Be able to define sections or a set of tables with an identifier of colors that help a better visualization or understanding of large databases
  • Implement a cooperative mode for work teams

IDERA SQL Diagnostic Manager for SQL Server

  • Windows client has some issues. When you have small time intervals for your data collection, it can cause the client to become unresponsive and require you to restart it.
  • It takes more time to get the web client running than it does to get the windows client running.
  • The visualizations have been the same for the last eight years--could use a little bit of a refresh.

Alternatives Considered

DbVisualizer

DbVisualizer provides a good value when compared against other 3rd party products with similar features as well as products with similar functionality made by the database vendors. The user interface is good and user friendly / intuitive and easy to learn. It doesn't take too long for an experienced DBA / database developer to come up to speed.

Return on Investment

DbVisualizer

  • The institution is of the governmental type, therefore we do not measure the commercial impact of using this tool
  • The impact on the benefit of the population is always positive with tools that streamline our processes, and DbVisualizer is one of the best

IDERA SQL Diagnostic Manager for SQL Server

  • It saves me a significant amount of time each week, freeing me up for other important tasks. I couldn't possibly monitor each server individually to the extent that SQLdm does.
  • With the wealth of information I can get to easily, I can be more proactive in taking care of my environments rather than reactive. The times when other people notice something happening before I do are few and far between.
