In most cases the pages load very quickly. In our particular case, we need to do some movement of services to separate our monitoring service to separate infrastructure from the repository. When we first started with SQL Sentry on 5 licenses, we did not have any issues. Since we have now grown that to 25, we are experiencing some challenges. We do not believe this to be a tool problem.

About SQL Sentry

With SentryOne SQL Sentry, users can find, fix, and prevent database performance problems that could delay, or even halt, data delivery.

In addition to delivering actionable, detailed metrics that help users maintain optimal database performance in physical, virtual, and cloud environments, SQL Sentry provides scalability, boasting demonstrated success monitoring 800+ SQL Server instances with one monitoring database.

SQL Sentry Premium edition provides visibility across the data estate, with monitoring for:

  • SQL Server
  • Azure SQL Database
  • SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS)
  • SQL Server on Hyper-V or VMware VMs (including host)
  • SQL Server on Azure SQL Database Managed Instance
  • SQL Server on Amazon RDS
  • SQL Server on Amazon EC2
  • SQL Server on Linux

SQL Sentry Essentials edition includes the core features of their flagship monitoring solution, and they state it is ideal for monitoring environments of up to 10 targets, including SQL Server, Azure SQL Database (and Managed Instance), SQL Server on Amazon RDS, SQL Server on Amazon EC2, and SQL Server on Linux.

Although a SQL Sentry Premium license can be used to monitor Azure SQL Database in a hybrid environment, dedicated licensing is available for large Azure SQL Database environments.
