Idera Announces New Version of Free SQL Server Performance Monitoring Tool

Version 3.5 of Idera’s Popular SQL check Tool features new performance metrics

HOUSTON – August 6, 2012 – Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, today announced version 3.5 of SQL check™, a free SQL Server performance monitoring tool for SQL Server databases that provides valuable real-time performance information for database administrators and developers.

SQL Check 3.5 now offers throughput monitoring, which displays key metrics for batches, compilations, recompilations and transactions on SQL Server. Throughput monitoring helps database administrators understand a server’s normal activity level and identify unusual spikes that might be causing performance bottlenecks.

These new metrics strengthen SQL check’s performance monitoring for metrics including waits, reads/writes, cache hits and sessions.

“SQL check is an incredibly useful tool to  help DBA’s manage time-consuming everyday tasks such as troubleshooting issues on SQL Server databases," said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. “SQL check 3.5 monitors 20 key performance metrics, is easy to install and can be up and running within five minutes.”

“Idera builds tools to make a DBA’s life easier,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO at Idera. “SQL check, along with our other free tools for SQL Server SQL, job manager and SQL PowerShell Scripts, gives the SQL Server community a glimpse into the feature set of our enterprise-class products for SQL Server management and administration.”
