Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

SQL Sentry Performance Advisor is used on a daily basis to troubleshoot performance issues, disk space utilization, i/o bottlenecks, blocking, deadlocks, etc. It is used by the Data Warehouse SQL Server DBAs on a daily basis, and has proven to be the perfect tool: powerful and yet very simple.
  • The dashboard contains the required information to check on how a server is performing.
  • Reports are very good. We use them to report to upper management.
  • How simple it is to use it.
  • Alerting is amazing.
  • Expand to other platforms, such as Oracle.
I was an Idera user. It sometimes felt very complicated to deal with the information delivered by that tool. I started to do some research and found SQL Sentry. After evaluating the product for a couple of weeks, and showing upper management what SQL Sentry was able to do, we moved out of Idera.
It is very good in showing the information needed to keep servers running at their best. We have detected scenarios when our servers where performing very bad that would have been very hard to do without SQL Sentry.
