If you download the latest release of SQL Monitor, you’ll notice something a little different when you go to Server Overviews. We’re giving users the opportunity to try out the new Server Overview page that will be available in version 6.0, released later this year. The current page is still there but you can choose to preview the new version.
As the title of this blog hints, this is a beta page, so some things might not work exactly as planned, there is no documentation, and there are a few known issues within the beta. The reason we’re releasing it now, rather than waiting until it’s all shiny and polished, is that we want your feedback and input into how the finished page will look and function.
From speaking to many of you, we have a good idea of what needs to be improved, but this is your chance to tell us if the new beta page works for you. Does it make diagnosing SQL server issues easier? Is the information displayed relevant and, most of all, is it still ingeniously simple?
So what’s changed? Well, lots of things but I’m going to be deliberately ambiguous in telling you exactly what. There are some new graphs, metrics, and a new way of displaying alerts in a timeline, but we’d like you to explore the new features for yourself and see if their implementation is logical and intuitive. Does it work how you expect it to? Is there a feature you don’t like or is there something we’ve missed out?
So, go and download the SQL Monitor v6 beta and explore the new overviews!
