Suggestions

Welcome to the Redgate SQL Monitor feature suggestions list. Tell us how we can improve SQL Monitor by voting on these suggestions or by submitting your own ideas.

This is the easiest way to make an impact on SQL Monitor’s roadmap. Check out the completed suggestions to see how your ideas have influenced us in the past. Please note that this list is one of multiple sources that drive our development, meaning that we will not always implement the highest-ranking suggestions.

To give your idea the greatest possible impact, please follow these guidelines:

  • Describe the goal you’re trying to accomplish, rather than a specific solution to get there
  • If you have a favoured solution, add it as a comment to your suggestion
  • Give us as much context as possible
  • Only make one suggestion per post. If you have multiple ideas, submit them in separate posts
  • Comment and vote on existing posts to develop the ideas — often the SQL Monitor team will initially stay quiet about new suggestions to see what you have to say!

If you have any questions visit the SQL Monitor forum.

  1. Make "Source" hyperlink in Alert take you to the specific date time on the Server Overview Page

    If I click on the "Source" Hyperlink in alert, this opens the server overview page for the relevant server, however, the displayed time frame is the default (24 hour period ending at the current time)

    It would be helpful if the server overview page opened at the date / time of the alert as it is highly likely after clicking the hyperlink, that you are going to want to view the point in time of the alert

  2. See Transaction Isolation Levels in Blocking Alerts

    There are two methods I have been using to understand blocking situations on our servers:

    The processes tab in the Blocking Process alert
    The blocking processes section in the server overview

    I can get a lot of information from both of these methods but I don't seem to be able to get the isolation levels of the blocking or blocked queries which would be helpful in understanding why the blocking situation has occurred.

    Prior to using SQL monitor, we used the blocked process report to monitor blocking and these include the isolation levels. Unfortunately, I still have to resort to…

  3. Limit user access on clusters

    I would like to be able to grant specific AD users / groups access to specific instances on a cluster. Currently its only possible to grant access at the cluster level which gives more access than is necessary. This would be a supremely useful feature for me!

  4. Outlook calendar style view for SQL Agent jobs

    This would be very useful for viewing all scheduled jobs in an Outlook-style calendar view. Also useful for scheduling new jobs to prevent conflicts.

  5. Environment specific Reports

    As we have option to create different reports on SQL Monitor, We would like to have the option to create the reports as per environment (Dev,UAT,Prod) for Disk Space,Server Downtime etc. It will be more feasible if we can get a filter to create reports for the specific environment.

  7. Database Tags

    It would be great if, in addition to Instance Tags, we could assign tags to individual Databases as well. This could help in various ways in trying to determine what the purpose is of the vast number of databases we need to monitor and manage.

  9. Superimpose the Disk I/O for VMWare Host on graph for Disk I/O

    I'd like to get the Disk I/O for the VMWare Host superimposed on the graph just as I get CPU and Memory, it is very helpful to see the load on the host together with the load on the actual VM.

  11. Save alert email addresses

    I monitor a large enterprise and forward hundreds of alerts using cut/paste. If recent addresses were retained, it would save a lot of time.

  13. View stats for queries across databases and / or servers

    Given that one has multiple similar databases, recieving the same queries, having same indexes and so forth. Currently one are able to view top-queries on server and database level, but what would be very valuable is to see the same information across databases on a server and across servers where one would then match the query on a content of the query itself. Then one could pinpoint globally what queries that has high io / cpu / ... even tough they on a individual db-level is not "high"

  14. Create smaller timeframes on the server overview page.

    Currently if you dive into the overview page of a certain server the default timeframe is 24 hours, you can narrow this into 12,6,3 and 1 hour.

    I would like to have the opportunity to narrow it down into minutes.like a custom time frame. This helps to do a more clean investigation.

  15. Monitor Partitioned Tables in SQL Server

  16. Testing the Availability Group listener(s)

    If an Availability Group listener is not working for any reason (like no DNS resolution), but the ressource is still up in the cluster, SQL Monitor will not raise any alert.

    Could you add a specific test for SQL monitor to test the connection using the availability group listener(s) and raise an alert if not successful?

  18. Exclude serverless databases from monitoring

    Need the ability to exclude serverless databases from scanning. The purpose of using serverless is to suspend when not in use, drastically reducing costs. Currently these databases are "kept awake" by SQL Monitor and never go to sleep. This is a deal-breaker for use on some of our servers...

  19. SQL Monitor to Authenticate Directly with Office 365, Exchange Online

    Hello, it would be great if SQL Monitor could authenticate directly with Office 365 rather than having to use an on-premises SMTP server. Exchange Online is probably the most widely used email service for business and the application is unable to successfully authenticate with it. Thanks.

  20. alert when database was created / dropped

    It would be nice to have a build in alert when someone (e.g. a vendor) created or dropped a database.

    Reasons:
    - you may want to delete old backup files (if dropped) or have to modify / delete some maintenances
    - you'll make a manual full backup of the new DB so that log-backups could be taken by your backup solution
    - maybe you have to add the new DB to monitoring (as DLM Dashboard), backups (and have to consinder its the disk space at the backup drive) or an Excel-Sheet with a list of your databases :-)

    I…
