Overall Satisfaction with SQL Sentry Performance Advisor

It is being used across the whole organization. It is being used to troubleshoot performance issues and to determine current pressure points. By knowing the pressure points, resources can be allocated appropriately.
  • The performance dashboard presentation gives a quick overview of the health of the SQL Instance.
  • Sentry products also include the Server OS performance metrics.
  • The problematic SQL code 'jumps' out when zooming in on a dashboard.
  • It seems to show only 3 weeks of data. Perhaps I'm not quite familiar YET with all the features.
  • Having it as an APP on the iPhone would be nice.
Just watching SQLSentry.tv videos and how user friendly it was, made the decision less difficult. When Brent Ozar recommended it, the blurriness went away!
It tells you immediately where the pressure points are.
