  1. Add plus/minus tolernaces for unusual job durations

    Allow different tolerances to the plus and minus percentages for the "Job Duration Unusual". In some circumstances (especially when there may be a lot of data coming in and the disks are extremely busy), I don't mind a deviation of a few hundred percent positive in the deviation. But a negative deviation of 90% would likely indicate some of the expected data was missing (thus a problem).

    • Customizing alerts without loosing inherited settings

      Would be great to have the possibility to customize alerts on lower levels without loosing the inerited "customizations".
      Otherwise there is the need to "copy" all the exclusions made on higher or highest level to the level that should be customized...
      In example : i want to add a keyword for a specific query on Database Instance without loosing all the exceptions made for backup and so on.

      • Allow filtering out certain types of wait statistics (e.g. to remove benign ones)

        As the title says. See Paul Randal's query for an example: https://www.sqlskills.com/blogs/paul/wait-statistics-or-please-tell-me-where-it-hurts/
        Give us the option to control exactly which types are filtered out of results.

        • add custom metric for tracking use of deprecated features

          I think it should be possible, using Extended Events or some other method, to create a custom metric that allows SQL Monitor to track the use of deprecated features. This data is useful for upgrade planning or best practice reviews. I realize some of this can be found via server-side tracing, but I have heard that Extended Events may be more efficient.

          • Allow email configuration at the time you configure a new alert.

            Once you configure an alert, it automatically defaults to notify the default recipient. However, if I want another user to receive these emails, I have to configure this through Alert Settings. I'd like the ability to set up the email address in Custom Metrics setting, so that everything is done in one integrated place.

            • Localization of the Timeline in Graphs

              Actual the timeline in Analysis Graphs is showing "US" Notation e.g 1:51 PM. As European this is not the favorite way of reading times....
              Would be great to have the possibility to Change the TimeFormat.
              for the Charts timeline

              • Use extended events for deadlock "tracing" instead of a trace flag

                If the SQL Server version is high enough, using extended events to capture deadlock information would be preferred to using a trace flag.

                • Manual Email Generation from alerts

                  Would like to add functionality that allows our users to manually trigger an email, when our SOPs state that an Alert requires a support case. To explain further, we do not want the email generated automatically when an Alert is thrown, we want to be able to click a button to generate it Manually, should an Alert need that action taken.

                    • Notes on Analysis Graph

                      It would be pretty cool if we could add notes to a spot on the graph. For example we copied a large file to one of our drives earlier this month and it shows on the graph as a large increase. Being able to add a note (even something similar to the comments for alerts) that corresponds with a point on the graph would be helpful for communication and logging.

                      • Add hide/show button for metric in Analysis Graph page

                        Add an ability to quickly hide/show lines of metrics in Analysis Graph. It would be very useful when looking for correlation findings.

                        • Add volume name to the drive letter labels.

                          I could never remember which drive letter is my temp drive or data drive on every server I have. Would be good to easily see the IO on my log drive over night. You can easily achieve this and it would make the tool so much more useful then it already is. IO is one of the toughest things to get a handle on and this would make a huge difference. Thanks

                          • The ability to clear baselines

                            Sometimes the baselines that get established will change due to modifications of the job or the server. The ability to adjust baselines and/or clear them would be extremely helpful

                              In v4.0 wait stats analysis was added on the overview pages. I'd like to see that extended to the point where we'd be able to graphically analyse historical data about wait stats, similar as metric analysis on the Analysis tab. Baselines and comparisons included.

                              • Allow custom metrics to be optionally created as "event" alerts rather than default "continuous" alerts.

                                I have installed the "Used/available database space increased alert" which alerts when defined thresholds of used space have been exceeded. However, once activated, the alert remains in an active state with no additional notifications (easily missed). I'd prefer to have this metric run daily and notify each time a threshold is exceeded.

                                  • Include instance-specific name (@@SERVERNAME) on alert mails

                                    The alert mails for a SQL Server cluster contain the cluster name but not the actual instance virtual name. It would be nice if the mails contained the actual virtual name (as given by "select @@servername") so that the email contained all the details needed to connect to an alerting instance.

                                    My cluster name (i.e. CLUST01) is a different IP than my virtual names (i.e. VIRTUALSQL01), which means that I can't connect to my "FOO" instance by "CLUST01\FOO" as the alert email seems to indicate. Instead I need to connect via "VIRTUALSQL01\FOO" which is not present anywhere in the alert…

                                      The ability to publish custom metrics and alerts to your website for review and easy addition to community driven submissions. I have tested on my own systems and would like to quickly post up the custom metric and alerts I have created instead of current process.

                                      • Change global overview to show CURRENT status of sql and windows not historical

                                        I have the Global overview up on a giant monitor in the NOC... so I get a deadlock and now on the big screen the prod server is critical... the deadlock gets a victim and sql clears it... Until I go in and physically clear the alert the status shows as critical and everyone is really EXCITED... but seriously at this point now there is nothing wrong with this server... It needs to show that it is now ok on the next refresh but still have the uncleared alert in the uncleared count..

                                        • Some alerts show 2 different time zones on a single alert event

                                          On the alerts page I open a Database Unavailable alert that indicates a time of 10pm. The new page opens, and I see "Time raised = 10pm" but on the Details tab I see "Time = 6am"... it's showing UTC time instead of local time here. (Unless I've got something misconfigured!)
