Anyone else using this product??? I am using version 8.1.2 and I have to say it is extremely comprehensive and is excellent in my shop where we have MS SQL Server, Oracle 8i & 10g, and DB2.

Yes, we are using DB Artisan for Sybase and have tried it for MS SQL Server too. It's a good tool.

We are currently considering Performance Center for proactive monitoring. Any experience or feedback on this product? Or any other recommended tools for Sybase & MS SQL Server environments?

I have been using dbartisan for about 4-5 years now thru various releases and consider it to be an excellent product.  Pretty much able to get what I need done without resorting to running scripts.  Find some bits to be confusing, but there is usually a way to get around most barriers.  Also use ChangeManager is the best way I know of to keep database objects in synch.

Never had time to take in any training on the beast, but wish I did

I have used this product for 5-6 years now and it is doing good.  we have license for Oracle, Sybase and SQL Server.  The maint things that we think is a problem is that it doesn't know how to handle SQL Server 2005.  Well I am a SQL Server DBA so I don't use it againt any other product.  With the new release license I heard it would be able to handle 2005 but there is another question about the license cost.

The latest release does indeed handle 2005. There were some questions about some late breaking changes to Vista and Longhorn which delayed things evidently.

Performance Center was an option we looked at, however, I received information that Performance Center will most likely be wrapped up inside DB Artisan in the relatively near future so took a pass on that product.

We have it here and have for about 4 years. We use it for minor SQL Server things, ease of use for some Oracle stuff and DB2 Unix admin. Some MF DB2 sometimes too. We really like it. I use it quite a bit for some things that Oracle Ent. Manager does not do... rebuild indexes on the fly... ease of use for modifying tbls... easier to add pri. keys/indexes too.  Some dbs' that have a handful of schemas it is easier to analyze in Artisan.

I have actually been using their (embarcadero) products for many years now.  I have become increasingly disappointed with their quality control over time.  The latest versions I upgraded too have caused numerous problems for me and I had 6 bug reports within 2 months of using them.  I cannot even use their products at one of my clients that has a lot of databases on a single server.  And I ONLY do sql server, so their multiplatform capabilities are useless for me.

Just make sure you report the bugs to Embarcadero - the are normally incredibly responsive, so I'd be surprised if a bug report were ignored.

where did you hear about Performance Center being integrated with DB Artisan?  I just did an evaluation of it and a comparison with Quest's Spotlight.  It would seem silly to drop $20k on Spotlight if Performance Center is going to be free, even though IMHO it's an inferior product.
