Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

We use it to troubleshoot client SQL server instances that are experiencing performance issues. The issues are generally related to poor queries and/or lack of index maintenance, but they're problems that clients are unable to track down themselves. Most the majority of them are small businesses that don't have in house IT expertise, especially with SQL server.
  • The tool is extremely effective at quickly finding performance bottlenecks
  • The ability to find exactly the troublesome queries and perform target traces on demand.
  • The workflow of SQL Sentry is easy to use and just lets you get about the business of finding/resolving problems and not have to worry about learning the interface.
  • Would love to have some form of multi tenancy even if it means a subset or reduced functionality for those users. The ability to X user access to only information about Y databases in a given instance or instances
  • Confio
SQL Sentry PA was much easier, faster to implement and quicker to get the data we were looking for out of it.
We would be able to use more instances of it on a different pricing model such as an on-demand (pay as you go) or SPLA (service provider) licensing.
