Physical and Virtual Performance Monitoring
Easily monitor and view the performance of both physical server and VMware or Hyper-V virtual server environments to get a complete view of SQL Server databases. View performance metrics and alerts for virtual machines and their related hosts including CPU, memory, disk usage, network etc. to get a complete performance picture of the SQL server environment.
Query Performance Monitoring
Identify and monitor inefficient and poor performing SQL queries, batches, statements and stored procedures causing blocks and deadlocks, such as long or most frequent queries or queries consuming unusually high CPU or I/O. Thresholds can be configured on each individual server allowing for greater flexibility, and the interface makes it very easy to see the most costly queries by looking at individual query executions or query signatures.
*NEW* Transactional SQL Server Application Monitoring with SQL Workload Analysis
Now available in the Pro version of SQL Diagnostic Manager
SQL Workload Analysis focuses on wait state and application transaction monitoring and analysis by continuously sampling queries and plans. It significantly upgrades the wait state analysis capabilities.
Combine the operational monitoring from SQL Diagnostic Manager and transactional monitoring with SQL Workload Analysis to view instance properties and alerts, receive prescriptive recommendations for operational diagnosis, analyze workloads for transactional diagnosis, and arrive at a comprehensive root cause analysis.
Integrated SQL Doctor Expert Recommendations
Expert recommendations from IDERA SQL Doctor are now integrated into SQL Diagnostic Manager. Enhance performance and speed up problem resolutions with built-in tuning advice and best practices developed by SQL Server MVPs. These updated recommendations are integrated into analysis workflows and provide specific guidance to address problem issues including automatic corrective scripts and links to related online content to supercharge your SQL Server performance.
Avoid false alarms with adaptive alerting functionality and set alert thresholds based on built-in historical statistical analysis of your server performance data.
The system has embedded heuristic analysis of event trends and behaviors and presents a percentage of likelihood that various events could happen later in the day based on past behavior trends. This helps DBAs to be better prepared to diagnose, drill down, and resolve an issue quickly and effectively.
Access SQL Diagnostic Manager from anywhere. Use any mobile device, such as iPhone, Android, Blackberry or Tablet to view real-time and historical SQL Server performance data. Plus, view or kill sessions, start/stop jobs and run queries to resolve or diagnose issues remotely while on-the-go.
View a demo of SQL Diagnostic Manager mobile.
Log in from anywhere and quickly check the status of monitored server instances to identify and diagnose issues. View the current status of monitored instances, drill down into single instance details, view the top occurrences of performance issues, and see a rollup of all active alerts. Customize your display with eighteen new widgets, enhanced heat map view, and query wait state visualizations. Create any number of individually configured dashboards to address the needs of the entire organization.
Integration with SCOM
The SQL Diagnostic Manager Management Pack provides easy integration with Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager (SCOM). The Management Pack propagates the current status, health and events of all monitored instances up to Operations Manager, allowing the DBA and IT Operations staff to share data at a higher level across their enterprise. The management pack is easy to install and does not incur any additional monitoring overhead. Read the FAQ and watch a quick 5 minute video to learn more.
