Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

Nordic Santander Consumer Bank has used the SQL Sentry Performance Advisor several years for online monitoring of our SQL Servers, both on an operational level and to support data warehouse.

The performance tool allows us to support the business by immediately finding any blocking actions on SQL servers and resolve this immediately in close cooperation with our system vendors and application operations. Statistics from the tool allows us to discuss and perform optimizing actions both from an application and operations point of view.

Highly recommended!

  • Online monitoring
  • Statistical analysis of performance
  • Index defragmentation
  • Capability to do on-demand update statistics
  • Security on database level (usergroup A can only see and receive notification on databases Z, Y and Z)
Because of previous experience with the tool, we did a short analysis of other tools and chose SQL Sentry Performance Adviser because of price, functionality, support and high expertise.
The tool is very well suited for operational monitoring including statistics. The feature of index defragmentation is working well, but could be expanded to also cover update statistics.
