Key features

Global Overview – See all your servers at a glance

View all your SQL Server instances, availability groups, clusters, and virtual machines on one central web-based interface, regardless of location or restrictions.

If anything needs attention, you can quickly drill down for detailed performance statistics.

Diagnosis - Quickly uncover root causes

When performance problems occur, time is at a premium. SQL Monitor gives you a focused set of performance metrics that quickly help you pinpoint the cause of any issues.

Use intelligent baselines to find the root cause, not just the symptom.

Alerting - Know about issues first

SQL Monitor comes preconfigured with over 65 fully customizable alerts for the most important operational and performance issues. With custom metrics, you can build your own metrics and alerts, or download ones created by our community of experts.

Alerts are displayed in our Grouped Inbox, arranged by common themes and issues, so they are easy to see, prioritize and act on. You can also set up alert notifications to come through email, Slack, PagerDuty, SNMP traps, or your ticketing tool of choice using webhooks. You can also manage your alerts using PowerShell and our API.

Deployments - Unearth bad database deployments

Every time you make a deployment, SQL Monitor picks up this information and displays it on the Instance timeline alongside key SQL Server metrics.

If you suddenly experience unusual behavior after a deployment, you’ll know exactly where to start your investigations.

If you’re deploying your database changes using one of Redgate’s deployment tools (SQL Change Automation or SQL Compare) you can see details of that deployment directly within SQL Monitor.

You can also integrate third-party deployment tools using PowerShell and our API to see custom annotations on the overview graphs.

Query impact - Find and fix slow queries

For every query get performance details, delays caused by resource waits, the T-SQL text, and the query plan.

With this data at your fingertips, it’s quick to find and fix deadlocks and long-running or expensive queries. With the query history you can identify patterns and trends to help you improve performance.

Hybrid Monitoring - Monitor any SQL Server platform in one place

With complete support for SQL Server hosted on Virtual Machines, Azure SQL Databases, Google Cloud, and Amazon RDS or EC2, you can monitor on-premises, virtual machines, elastic pools, and Managed Instances all within the same dashboard.

You can view all these servers at once for an instant overview, and then drill down for additional metrics tailored to the type of database you're looking at.

Reporting - Share reports about your servers and company health

Create customized reports with combined performance metrics available in SQL Monitor’s analysis view with summary estate information such as server uptime, alert metrics, or disks which fill up fastest.

Reports can be exported to PDF and emailed to you and your colleagues on a scheduled basis.
