Overall Satisfaction with Woodler SMT
Woodler SMT is great SQL Server performance monitoring ecosystem. I compared the Woodler SMT monitoring with native SQL Server's monitoring tools. The benefit of the Woodler SMT is that it offers [a] more descriptive interpretation of all information gathered regarding performance issues. It makes SMT extremely useful for people who [are] not SQL Server expert. I also appreciated support along from Woodler company along [with] the Woodler SMT tool. This is an [invaluable] benefit because it helps users to avoid misinterpretations of information provided by the tool itself. Shortly, with Woodler SMT the DBA is never lost and helpless.
- Very self-explainable user interface
- 24/7 assistance from SQL professionals
- Great insights into a behavior of each SQL Server instance in a company
- Too [much] information for [inexperienced] users (but this is [a] very common issue with SQL Server and its monitoring)
- It saves the time of troubleshooting
- It increases user's satisfaction with products relaying on SQL Server's performance
Even if Solarwinds's solution is [a] highly competitive, worldwide known product while Woodler SMT was developed by [a] small local company, both provide very comparable output for DBAs. I did not make an experience with "living human" support from Solarwinds, but in my opinion, the Woodler's personal support makes the advantage when the choice between both products [has] to be done.

Woodler SMT is intended to be [a] specialized SQL Server monitoring tool. Unlike other monitoring systems, Woodler SMT does not take care [of] networks, AD, and other stuff along [with] company infrastructures. As for me, at least, this makes the Woodler SMT very strong in its area of expertise. If anybody is looking for [professional,] specialized SQL performance monitoring, the Woodler SMT would be the best choice. For general monitoring, this tool rather will not help.
