3rd Party Monitoring\Alerting\Diagnostic Tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I wan to bring in a 3rd party monitoring tool into the enterprise. I have used Idera SQL Diagnostic Manger for a few months at a previous job, but I would love some thoughts as to what tool folks are using and are satisfied with. I am talking in terms of ease of use, easy to see and understand the output, clear and concise, features, etc. Any thoughts on Idera or Quest Spotlight for SQLEnterpise or any other?

    Thanks in advance!
