The following is a short list of tool I found performing a quick search on the web and I was curious if anyone had any experiences with these tools or could recommend other tools.

Redgate SQL Response ( http://www.red-gate.com/products/SQL_Response/index.htm )
Idera SQL Diagnostic Manager ( http://www.idera.com/Products/SQL-Server/SQL-diagnostic-manager/ )
embarcadera DB Performance Center XE ( http://www.embarcadero.com/products/performance-center?gclid=CI_hzsvC5KQCFVvW5wod-R-WMg )
Confio Ignite ( http://www.confio.com/ppc/FreeTrial-SQLServer.php?source=GoogSqlS&gclid=CKOcoM3C5KQCFYK5Kgod4zxJMw )
Quest Spotlight ( http://www.quest.com/spotlight-on-sql-server-enterprise/ )
Heroix Longitude ( http://www.heroix.com/agentless/agentless_database_monitoring.htm )
SQLSentry ( http://www.sqlsentry.com/ )


Personally, I have been working with Idera SQL Diagnostic Manager. However, it has been a while since I have researched what tools are available.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

Hi - I work at Red Gate, so have an obvious bias here, but just thought I'd mention that we have a new version of SQL Response out very soon, now renamed to SQL Monitor (the tool has been completely re-written for version 2). If you want to have a go yourself, you can download a Beta from:

http://www.red-gate.com/products/sql_monitor_eap/index.htm

It only takes minutes to install and try it out - we'd love to know what you think!

We use DIAB from DIABSQLSoftware.com, it covers about everything for one super low price I don't know how they stay in business but it's great software monitors memory, drives, cpu, replication, backups, scheduled jobs, excellent tools for performance gathering and also monitors OLAP, can do an on an on the fly trace and even check large SQL scripts for best practices.

I would love to hear other opinions on this very topic. Idera's Diagnostic Manager seems to be a great product, and to be honest I haven't been able to find anything like it. The price is the only downfall of the product. Red Gate's product just doesn't seem to be as robust as DM (no offense to the Red Gate guys).

As for Diagnostic Manager, I'd also like to hear more of your thoughts on the product. I'm a DBA that is in the midst of doing research to recommend a product for my company...so hearing your likes, dis-likes and experiences with the product would be very beneficial to me.

Thanks.
