Overall Satisfaction with Redgate SQL Monitor

It is used in a client site to monitor their SQL estate.
  • Global Dashboard gives a great overview
  • Ability to rename/alias a server
  • Easy to navigate
  • I don't think the custom metrics/alerting is as flexible as say SQLSentry
  • Clients can review all their estate in one place, far easier and better than what SCOM was providing them with
I personally prefer SQL Sentry due to the flexibility in the custom metrics/monitoring but this is still a great product!!
Redgate SQL Monitor is well suited to environments which have little or no SQL Server knowledge/experience.

  • Dashboard
  • Popups when hovering a mouse over a server on the dashboard is a nice touch
  • I wish it had the highlight a time period and right click for top SQL feature which you get in SQL Sentry
