I'd prefer Idera's SQL Diagnostic Manager.

Thank You,

Best Regards,

It is my hope that the SQL Monitor Webinar on 12/14 can answer those questions....

Can System Center Operations Manager be used for this type of monitoring?

Very quick question for you. Do you have any research on pro's / con's of both products. I was listening to the presentation yesterday and it was very helpful. It would seem for our organization, we are looking not only for monitoring, but potentially some level of remedial approaches when monitoring indicates a challenge. While most of the DBA's that attend SQL Server Central are adept, I'm not certain our small organization (that is growing) has the same level of expertise as people like you. The presenter did a very good job of framing the 'four areas' to watch. It would appear that there are multiple solutions that will help you 'watch' your DB's. Do you find any of these tools that provide remedial approaches to problems or is it 'every man for himself'. Thanks for the insight.

One helpful aspect of LogicMonitor is that its alerts don't just tell you a host is down. It gives you suggestions for resolution.

As far as monitoring goes - another good tool is Confio Ignite. I did an eval of this tool and found it to be extremely helpful.

If you are looking for a simple monitoring tool for your SQL Agent job systems with vibrant visuals, you can check out SQL Agent Insight @ www.brentec.ca. The software is relatively new with new features being actively added. Email notification is there as well for any thresholds that are exceeded.

Hope this is helpful.
Regards.

Idera's SQL diagonistic manager has been good in the fields you are requesting.

System
Centre
Operations
Manager

from Microsoft is also pretty good. The SQL management packs were quite good. The benefit is that its Microsoft, the management packs are (were) written by the SQL team and the SCOM can be used monitor more than just SQL (Exchange, OS, etc, etc). SCOM uses an agent on the server, so you can monitor and see how much of an impact the agent has on the server.

I used Idera at a previous place, and did not like it. It uses an agentless method and "pulls" information from the server. This can compound issues when a server is performing poorly.
