Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

Performance Advisor is a utility that has transcended our monitoring, troubleshooting, gap analysis, and capacity planning capabilities. A powerful product that allows for simple ease and flow at the data professionals fingertips.
  • The standard report functionality out of the gate is second to none. Some of the features included but not limited to:
  • Blocking and Deadlocking
  • Performance Reviews
  • Disk File Space Usage
  • Top SQL Statements
  • Event chaining off of the SQL agent has been stellar performance. We have been able to give two-fold time back to the business units by this functionality.
  • Real time monitoring of DR monitoring.
  • We have hooks into vsphere for VM's and would like to see some additional functionality with that.
The speed of which SQL Sentry reports the alerts to us compared to Orion has been a huge benefit along with ease of use of the product.
