“We have introduced 150 new servers this year and 70-80 new applications. Without Redgate’s SQL Monitor this would not have been possible.”
“It’s saved us at least two hours a day in just monitoring the systems, probably more if you add how it’s enabled us to change the way we work.”
“SQL Monitor lets us quickly know what the exact problem is so we can jump on it and fix it before the customer even notices.”
“With SQL Monitor we now have better coverage, better features, and a more cost-effective solution.”

|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.
