While Solarwinds now does application monitoring, it will be up to you to investigate if it does what you need it to do.

I would seriously recommend, getting trial editions of software, like SQL Monitor from Red-Gate, Spotlight or Foglight from Quest (now Dell), SQL Sentry, Solarwinds, sure there are many more, cant rattle them off the top of my head. Install them, configure them and evaluate which one meets your needs and your companies needs.

As detailed on your original post, when I did the above task, Solarwinds wasn't mature enough as a product for application monitoring, while the website sure does speek the lingo that it now is, I would still need to re-evaluate it, and I would still probably dismiss it as I am sure dedicated companies like Red-Gate and Quest who have many years expereince with RDBMS monitoring software have already thought of it and done it in a previous version.

But with the current economic situation, I guess you are limited on cost, so you will need to also factor that into your evalutations.

Ruled that out as well, the management pack at the time didnt do everything we needed.

Again get a copy install it, configure it, evaluate it, if it does what you want great, if not leave it behind.
