Spotlight from Quest Software is a database performance monitoring option.Dell SpotlightThe DBA team uses it for real-time monitoring of a couple dozen of the production instances as well as spot monitoring of development instances when troubleshooting issues. We also make it available in a read-only mode to our clients so they can monitor their production instances as well. It's not the company supported/supplied software, but since that doesn't work well enough, we've supplemented it with Spotlight for our most important instances.,I love the main page that provides a color code list of all the servers so I know very quickly where to focus my attention first. I love how easy it is to configure new notifications. I love how easy it is to configure a new server to monitor.,My only complaint was the cost.,8,It had a positive impact in two main areas. First, it was easy for the DBA team to configure it to watch and alert on the most important instances. And second, it was very easy to provide clients read-only access to the dashboard so they could watch their servers as well, i.e. they weren't always pestering us for current status.,SQL Sentry,JIRA Service Desk
