Is Sql monitor 4 a server side tool? We currently use sql profiler which is a client side tool, hence we see performance degradation when monitoring with this tool.

I believe SQL Monitor does not compare to Profiler.

Profiler is really hard on the server, because it will keep track of *everything* that it logged. SQL Monitor will only poll the server every few seconds to request the information it will store.

Hi,

Just to confirm, SQL Monitor does not need to install anything on the machines / SQL Server instances that you are monitoring.

For more information on SQL Monitor installation, please see the documentation here:

Thanks,


Colin.
