Do you find yourself asking…

Explore more ways you can use SQL Sentry

  • Troubleshooting SQL Server deadlocks—where tasks are contending for resources—can be time-intensive and frustrating. Especially in complex deadlock situations, you could waste limited resources looking in the wrong place for the answer to the problem.

    SQL Sentry Deadlock Analysis helps you quickly determine the root cause of the deadlock, so you can restore the database to peak performance.

  • The TempDB view in our web interface, SQL Sentry Portal, gives you insight into which applications and users are accessing tempdb and how. Easy-to-understand charts let you analyze tempdb file space utilization, objects, activity, and sessions to efficiently troubleshoot and optimize tempdb usage and prevent bottlenecks.

  • The SQL Sentry Event Calendar gives you a visual display in an Outlook-style calendar, so you can ensure every task and job will have sufficient resources to complete. The Event Calendar is one of the ways SQL Sentry helps you manage your SQL Server database proactively, so you can avoid unexpected database slowdowns that can negatively impact the business.

  • Storage Forecasting in SQL Sentry takes the guesswork out of planning storage needs by applying machine learning to forecast daily usage for storage volumes across servers, helping you proactively manage compute resources. The algorithms analyze workloads, fine-tune disk capacity forecasts, and provide intelligent reporting to help prevent system downtime.

  • SQL Sentry can automatically monitor Always On Availability Groups, which provide HA/DR capabilities in SQL Server. SQL Sentry gives you real-time insights into the state of your Always On environment. You can view the environment by Windows Server Failover Cluster node, by SQL Server instances, or by Availability Group.

  • Tune high-impact queries and plan a successful indexing strategy with Plan Explorer, which is integrated with SQL Sentry. Plan Explorer helps you troubleshoot poorly performing queries by giving you powerful index analysis capabilities, a visual display of query statistics, and query playback, so you can see which operators are putting the most load on the system.

  • Want to get a clearer picture of how processes such as I/O, recompiles, cursor operations, and other activities are affecting database performance? SQL Sentry QuickTrace gives you a comprehensive snapshot of activity created by combining process-level data and trace events collected during a brief sample period.

  • The Enhanced Platform Installer automates SQL Sentry software updates, saving you time and resources while ensuring SQL Sentry remain up to date.

    After deploying the Enhanced Platform Installer, you can install future updates by downloading the latest upgrade package, which updates all SQL Sentry monitoring services and sets all SQL Sentry clients to update at the next start. This innovative approach gives enterprises with large SQL Server environments optimal control over the upgrade process while shortening the deployment time.

  • SQL Sentry has proven scalability, with demonstrated success monitoring 800+ SQL Server instances with one monitoring database. Our innovative use of SQL Server technology to scale monitoring to large enterprise workloads was the focus of a Microsoft profile.

  • Environment Health Overview provides an at-a-glance health status of your environment with a 100-point scale score. The scale score is based on the severity, number of occurrences, the age of the Advisory, General, Audit, and Failsafe events, and the number of servers monitored.

    The Enhanced EHO dashboard available in SQL Sentry Portal highlights the Health Score History and an updated Alerts grid to provide details on the alert and allows users to assign alerts, leave notes, and close events. Additionally, they have an at a glance group/site view that provides easy insights into the servers experiencing a wide variety of issues, allowing for faster root cause analysis.

  • Wait Stats play an important part in SQL Server, and without the ability to view query level wait stats, users are often in the dark about troubleshooting and performance tuning.

    SQL Sentry users now have a more complete view of the workloads running on their environment. Users can now easily identify their top applications, databases, hosts, and users by multiple dimensions (including waits). Additionally, all captured events will show a detailed breakdown of the waits experienced during the executions.
