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.
MVPs, the SQL Monitor team, MVPs, and the SQL Server community have added scripts to the site. You can access it 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.
Below are the major milestone releases we have planned. Small improvements, tweaks and bug fixes will be continuously delivered at the end of each development team sprint.
Note: The world of SQL Server is changing all the time: we may change our plans to accommodate for new innovations. To keep SQL Monitor a reliable and secure product, delays may occur.
