SQL Monitor’s Job duration unusual alert is a powerful tool for keeping track of most jobs in your SQL Server environment. It works by comparing the running time of any job instance against the median for that job, and identifying when a variation in the job duration could hint at a performance problem. However, if your environment contains big jobs whose durations vary by several orders of magnitudes, it can be tricky to specify what kind of variation is expected and what would be unusual. For these cases, it is possible to go beyond the functionality of the built-in alert with a custom metric.
Data professionals are invited to attend Red Gate’s free SQL in the City event for a day of SQL Server training in London.
SQL in the City is a free, full day training and networking event for database professionals. After the success of last year’s event, Red Gate has expanded the event to cover six cities from sea to shining sea, including: New York, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and Seattle.
With contributions from MVPs and the SQL Server community, the SQL Monitor team at Red Gate has put together a custom metrics site, SQL Monitor Metrics, to accompany the release of SQL Monitor 3.2. The site hosts T-SQL scripts which can be imported directly to SQL Monitor for custom metric monitoring.
Red Gate Software has released Version 3.0 of SQL Monitor, a performance monitoring and alerting tool.
