Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited for database administrators or companies who implement software that relies on SQL servers. It will help them test new changes and ensure this will not impact the performance of their software. It is a last resort for MSPs to use to get to the bottom of an ongoing performance issue with their SQL server.

  • It will tell you if your server is under attack.
  • You can quickly see how your server is performing and which queries are taking the longest
  • I gives you the feeling that you are in control of your database, that you know what is going on for when they users ring up and tell you that the server is slow

Cons
Percona
  • Sometimes it creates problems while serving a huge number of servers but I am sure its efficient team will overcome this problem soon and with its rapid advancements there will surely be more latest and advanced alerting options.
  • Truly speaking this is a great invention with very few shortcomings. I never face any dependency issues.

I am using PMM for a long time now and the Dashboard provides a great overview for general server health and law. You get to watch if there are many queries when you get a problem. Time-based analysis for MySQL and MongoDB servers to confirm that your data works as efficiently as possible. We could improve database performance significantly.

Vividcortex is nice but is costly.
Datadog loses for me on the UI front and, of course, it will be a charged product.
Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) has been best blend of technologies and is supported by the Percona community very well.

Redgate SQL Monitor is a lot cheaper than SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer. I prefer the SolarWinds' design and that it offers integration with other SolarWinds products we already use. SolarWinds supports more than SQL servers (Oracle, MySQL, Maria DB, IBM DB2) and the analysis seems to be much better. The Spiceworks SQL Server monitoring is a free tool and is ideal for monitoring small business SQL instances.
