Here are four key areas where improved monitoring means better network performance and less stress for you and your users.
Firefighting mode is a familiar state of existence for DBAs. You configure your alerts and alarms as best you can, then come in in the morning (or get up in the middle of the night) to stamp out those fires. But which are really the hottest? Which can burn a little longer while others get immediate attention? Some DBAs just work down the list, addressing issues in order of occurrence, but this can be a mistake when better solutions are available. Correctly assessing and prioritizing your firefighting activities depends on not only instantaneity and granularity, but a quick and durable method or tool for prioritization.

  • Clarity from Chaos: Better SQL Server Performance Monitoring SQL Server DBA Professionals Global Marketing
  • Firefighting mode is a familiar state of existence for DBAs 2 SQLDBApros
  • Firefighting While the initial blaze may be a rush of adrenaline, aren’t you tired of sweating? Isn’t your extinguisher running low? You configure your alerts and alarms as best you can, then come in in the morning (or get up in the middle of the night) to stamp out those fires. • But which are really the hottest? • Which can burn a little longer while others get immediate attention? 3 SQLDBApros
  • Firefighting • Some DBAs just work down the list – addressing issues in order of occurrence • This can be a mistake when better solutions are available. • Here are four key areas where improved monitoring means better network performance and less stress for you and your users: – Monitoring – System Health Checks – Performance Health: Insight into Individual Instances – Expensive Queries 4 SQLDBApros
  • Monitoring • Fortunately, SQL Server performance monitors are making this easier for you all the time. • Rather than streaming columns of text that have to be read and analyzed, real-time graphic representations of system health and performance help you spend your problem remediation time effectively. – Heatmap views – Alarms list – Graphical Representations 5 SQLDBApros
  • System Health Checks • Being able to more effectively firefight is one thing. • But DBAs also want to see what underlying issues may be causing them problems tomorrow. • Health checks are now available to help you pinpoint and address issues in your infrastructure along five categories – Security – Disaster Recovery – Index Optimization – Memory – SQL Best Practice 6 SQLDBApros
  • Performance Health • Gaining insight and real-time analysis of an individual SQL Server instance — including data such as system waits and I/O latency — is the foundation for seeing how your performance is trending over time. • This is valuable in establishing performance benchmarks for your environment. 7 SQLDBApros
  • Expensive Queries • Expensive SQL queries that tie up resources are something you want to know about. • New-breed performance monitors give you clear, comprehensive, and immediately actionable information such as trend charts and execution plans. • Comparing SQL queries shows whether a change in query plan has a positive or negative effect. 8 SQLDBApros
  • It’s all about clarity from chaos…and we are here to help. 9 SQLDBApros
  • You can now monitor your server connections within SQL Server Management Studio using the new SpotlightTM Essentials Plug-in. 10 SQLDBApros
  • The SpotlightTM Health Check provides a prioritized list of key system health issues enabling you to pinpoint and address these issues within your SQL Server infrastructure. 11 SQLDBApros
