Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry

We have used SQL Sentry primarily for helping us monitor and proactively deal with performance issues with SQL Server. When we have a performance problem this tool has been quite helpful at reviewing past history and allow us to see patterns that may be causing us issues and helps us identify areas we can make changes to improve performance.
  • Performance tuning.
  • Monitoring.
  • History tracking.
  • User interface could use some improvement.
  • Make it easier to drill down.
  • Add ability to set up more alerting.
I have used tools from Idera, redgate, and also Solarwinds. SQL Sentry is one of the better tools out on the market in my opinion.
I feel this tool is ideally suited for monitoring performance issues in an OLTP environment maybe not so much for DW applications.
