results on Day One.
It's simple to install, easy to use, and provides the data you need before making tough calls about SQL Server performance. We've consulted over 1000 SQL Server professionals to get it that way.
Behind SQL Monitor
Read our development blog to learn more about the story, team, and process behind SQL Monitor.
SQL Monitor has a fully web-based UI. You can access it from mobile devices or desktop machines to investigate SQL Server performance problems wherever you are.
SQL Monitor's performance statistics are updated every 15 seconds, so you're always up-to-date on SQL Server activity.
SQL Monitor raises alerts within seconds of a problem occurring. They arrive in a shared Alert Inbox, and you can pick them up by email or use PagerDuty for SMS.
Rewind time to see performance data from the precise moment a problem occurred. While viewing past data, step forwards and backwards in time to see how performance changes.
SQL Monitor has a library of custom metrics written by SQL Server experts. You can import them with one click to extend what you monitor, or write your own custom metrics in SQL.
The Global Overview shows performance data and alert status for each server, so it's easy to spot and zero-in on performance issues. Each server, machine, and database has a dashboard too.
For each database and server, SQL Monitor highlights the queries that use the most resources.
Spot unusual performance, automatically plot baselines, and review trends over time, for a better understanding of typical server performance and the causes of any recurring issues.
SQL Monitor's alerts and metrics were selected on the advice of SQL Server experts and MVPs. You see only the information that matters, alongside expert advice on how to make use of it.
If you want SQL Monitor to collect extra performance data that's particularly important for your servers, you can now add T-SQL scripts to do it. You can analyze this data and receive alerts about it just like any other data that SQL Monitor collects.
On our dedicated custom metrics site, SQLMonitorMetrics.com, you can find and review T-SQL scripts and import them directly into your copy of SQL Monitor.
Scripts have been added to the site by the SQL Monitor team, MVPs, and the SQL Server community, and you can access the site straight from SQL Monitor.
If you run applications that store data in SQL Server, you can use custom metrics to monitor and alert on the data they collect, so you can now use SQL Monitor to track business activity, too.
Installing a metric and getting it working in SQL Monitor is easy, and we've provided a short walkthrough to guide you through the process. By the end of it, you'll have installed a custom metric that monitors whether specific backup jobs have been disabled.
NEW: Default TCP Port
by Fabiano Amorim
This metric checks whether your SQL Server installation is using the default TCP port. This alert is raised when you are using the default port of 1433 which is a known security risk. You should consider modifying the port to a non-standard, non-default port in order to thoroughly secure your systems.
