Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

Our DBA team uses SQL Sentry to monitor and troubleshoot all of our production SQL Server instances. This includes alerting on long running queries, when performance thresholds are met and exceeded, and the monitoring of SQL Agent Jobs.
  • Monitoring.
  • Troubleshooting.
  • Alerting.
  • Windows Monitoring.
  • Allowing non-power users to utilize the tool for query analysis, without having the ability to kill queries.
  • Alerting configuration.
Disk space alerting. We are forced to leverage SCOM, which is clunky at best. If SQL Sentry could provide us with those types of alerting and monitoring it would satisfy all of our SQL Server needs.
