Hey guys,

I'm looking for a good performance monitoring software for our sql servers. So far I was able to find RedGate SQL Monitor, which seems pretty nice, Ignite Confio 8, which also very good, and looks like they have excellent support, and Embarcadero DB Optimizer 3.5 (recommended by vendor). I'm not sure which one to go for, and why. Can anyone please recommend something that fairly simple to use, will give me great feedback on performance of database, suggest enhancements, and won't break the bank.

Hi,

I'm trialling Ignite and Red Gate as well. I feel that Ignite is more towards tuning SQL queries by showing the wait types associated whereas Red Gate has much more functionality.

I've also looked at Idera Diagnostic Manager but it is very expensive and not the easiest to you.

I agree that the support from Ignite is really good, have you had them demo the product to you?

Yeah, we've gotten a demo from them previously, when our accounting server had some performance issues. Ignite seemed a little complicated to just dive right in, but the support was awesome, and they were able to actually analyze the repository, and tell you which queries were holding up the process. The only downside I could find, aside from being a little complex at the beginning, was that it is also pricey. But you do get what you pay for in this case.

Is it quite expensive? I'm going to a reseller tomorrow for quotes.

Might investigate Red Gate a little further,

As far as I can tell, it's twice the price of Red Gate per license.

Ah, OK. I've been given the names of two resellers so might have to do some haggling. Thanks for letting me know.

Having a horrible time trying to implement RedGate. Some kind of error on my half, I'm sure of it, but I've submitted the support ticket. Can anyone else recommend any other software besides the ones listed above (RedGate SQL Monitoro, Confio Ignite, Embarcadero DB Optimizer)

Hi,

I've also been recommended SQL Sentry and Quest Spotlight. Have not had any experience with them though. Going to trial this week.
