Database Agent Job Monitoring and Management

for SQL Server

SQL Enterprise Job Manager

Monitor and manage agent jobs across database instances

Managing agent jobs for SQL Server across multiple servers and instances is difficult without the right tools. Failing jobs that do not complete on time can slow performance, cause added down time, and result in data loss. SQL Enterprise Job Manager monitors and manages SQL Server agent jobs and Windows tasks. The familiar calendar layout makes it easy to view status, manage details, and review history for any job or instance in your environment.
