Brentec IT Solutions releases SQL Agent Insight 0.6!
SQL Agent Insight is a monitoring utility/tool for observing key metrics within the SQL agent component of SQL Server. Over 40 metrics are immediately monitored including jobs, schedules, alerts, operators, categories and database mail.
A new feature to version 0.6 is the Job Conflict Summary. This feature is very useful in determining scheduled jobs that will conflict with one another, 3, 5 and 7 days in the future, right down to the second. Additionally, conflicting jobs can be graphed for a visual representation that can be saved for future use.
Also with release 0.6 comes some critical bug fixes and some interface tweaks. Check out the Brentec website for additional information.
SQL Agent Insight uses standard queries to the monitored database engine without any need to install the software on a client machine. Simply download, unzip and run, with no hassles.
Once the data is collected, a vibrant eye-popping display is presented giving immediate indication if any of the gathered metrics deviate from set thresholds quickly identifying problem areas. Thresholds can be saved for future use and are automatically loaded upon connecting to a previously monitored SQL instance.
E-mail alerts can be sent to DBA's for additional notification above-and-beyond the visual
alerts presented by SQL Agent Insight.
SQL Agent Insight is scalable and has the ability to monitor multiple systems all within the same interface. Bundled with a non-expiring key, feel free to use the software well into the future.
