    Leverage DataOps observability to optimize database performance

    Are you constantly fighting database performance fires, looking in vain for the root cause of SQL Server slowdowns?

    Without the right information, you could waste valuable time looking in the wrong places for the answers to your performance problems. You need accurate, actionable, detailed metrics to quickly identify and address database problems.

    With SQL Sentry, you enable observability, so you can effectively monitor, diagnose, and optimize your entire database environment. SQL Sentry helps you get out of fire-fighting mode, so you can keep your databases running continuously at peak performance.

    SQL Sentry gives you the level of detail you need to find and fix SQL Server performance problems.

  • Can I view important performance metrics in a single dashboard?

    See actionable performance information about your monitored servers in an easy-to-use Performance Analysis Dashboard that displays a graphical view of monitored server activity, with "Jump To" navigation, so you can drill down to granular details.

  • How can I find and fix high-impact SQL queries?

    The Top SQL view in SQL Sentry shows execution plan diagrams, query history, and more, so you can find and fix potentially problematic queries. The query analysis capabilities in SQL Sentry go far beyond what you'll find in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), giving you the information you need to quickly resolve problems.

  • Can I automate incident response and remediation?

    Proactively manage database performance and eliminate alert fatigue with Advisory Conditions that let you set relevant, actionable alerts based on conditions specific to your environment and automate responses to specific conditions.

  • How can I access performance data from my web browser?

    With the SQL Sentry Portal, you can view important performance data for your monitored SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and Windows targets in an easy-to-use web interface. The SQL Sentry Portal connects to your existing SQL Sentry database and includes core SQL Sentry capabilities, such as the Performance Analysis Dashboard, Top SQL, Environment Health Overview, and blocking and deadlocks analysis.

  • How can I get help planning effective index management and maintenance strategies?

    Successfully analyzing and managing SQL Server indexes can be frustrating and time-consuming. SQL Sentry Index Analysis gives you a sandbox environment, so you can explore the impact of various index strategies before you implement them.

  • Is there a way to quickly identify the root cause of SQL Server blocking?

    Although blocking is unavoidable, you need to be able to efficiently analyze blocking details to quickly identify the root cause—and understand the full impact—of a block. With SQL Sentry, you can view all SQL Server blocks during a specified time range that exceed the minimum blocking duration and kill blocking processes with the click of a button.

Explore more ways you can use SQL Sentry

  • Resolve SQL Server deadlocks

    Troubleshooting SQL Server deadlocks—where tasks are contending for resources—can be time-intensive and frustrating. Especially in complex deadlock situations, you could waste limited resources looking in the wrong place for the answer to the problem.

    SQL Sentry Deadlock Analysis helps you quickly determine the root cause of the deadlock, so you can restore the database to peak performance.

  • Analyze tempdb health and utilization

    The TempDB view in our web interface, SQL Sentry Portal, gives you insight into which applications and users are accessing tempdb and how. Easy-to-understand charts let you analyze tempdb file space utilization, objects, activity, and sessions to efficiently troubleshoot and optimize tempdb usage and prevent bottlenecks.

  • Manage SQL Server and Windows events in a visual calendar

    The SQL Sentry Event Calendar gives you a visual display in an Outlook-style calendar, so you can ensure every task and job will have sufficient resources to complete. The Event Calendar is one of the ways SQL Sentry helps you manage your SQL Server database proactively, so you can avoid unexpected database slowdowns that can negatively impact the business.

  • Predict future storage needs

    Storage Forecasting in SQL Sentry takes the guesswork out of planning storage needs by applying machine learning to forecast daily usage for storage volumes across servers, helping you proactively manage compute resources. The algorithms analyze workloads, fine-tune disk capacity forecasts, and provide intelligent reporting to help prevent system downtime.

  • Monitor Always On

    SQL Sentry can automatically monitor Always On Availability Groups, which provide HA/DR capabilities in SQL Server. SQL Sentry gives you real-time insights into the state of your Always On environment. You can view the environment by Windows Server Failover Cluster node, by SQL Server instances, or by Availability Group.

  • Optimize SQL queries

    Tune high-impact queries and plan a successful indexing strategy with Plan Explorer, which is integrated with SQL Sentry. Plan Explorer helps you troubleshoot poorly performing queries by giving you powerful index analysis capabilities, a visual display of query statistics, and query playback, so you can see which operators are putting the most load on the system.

  • Check environment health

    The Environment Health Overview in SQL Sentry gives you a snapshot of your SQL Server environment health, so you can easily prioritize troubleshooting activities to keep your databases running at peak efficiency.

  • Create event workflows

    Managing multiple events such as SQL Server Agent jobs and Windows Scheduled Tasks to avoid resource contention across your environment can be challenging. SQL Sentry Event Chains help you create and analyze event workflows, so you can identify and address potential performance problems.

  • Track process-level data

    Want to get a clearer picture of how processes such as I/O, recompiles, cursor operations, and other activities are affecting database performance? SQL Sentry QuickTrace gives you a comprehensive snapshot of activity created by combining process-level data and trace events collected during a brief sample period.

  • Automate SQL Sentry updates

    The Enhanced Platform Installer automates SQL Sentry software updates, saving you time and resources while ensuring SQL Sentry remain up to date.

    After deploying the Enhanced Platform Installer, you can install future updates by downloading the latest upgrade package, which updates all SQL Sentry monitoring services and sets all SQL Sentry clients to update at the next start. This innovative approach gives enterprises with large SQL Server environments optimal control over the upgrade process while shortening the deployment time.

  • Proven scalability

    SQL Sentry has proven scalability, with demonstrated success monitoring 800+ SQL Server instances with one monitoring database. Our innovative use of SQL Server technology to scale monitoring to large enterprise workloads was the focus of a Microsoft profile.
