Suggestions

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

This is the easiest way to make an impact on Redgate 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 — the Redgate Monitor team will often stay quiet initially about new suggestions to see what you have to say!

If you have any questions visit the Redgate Monitor forum.

  1. Export/Import Report configurations

    I'm using RedGate SQL server with different clients. Since the environments are not connected I have to manually create Report configurations for each client which takes quite some time. Also, any change to the Report configurations has to be then deployed by cilcking. Some export to XML or something similar and import wia PowerShell API would be nice.

  2. Be able to see and dissect alerts for deadlocks on the AWS RDS platform.

    Currently, SQL Monitor does not raise deadlock alerts for AWS RDS database instances. I'd like this functionality to be added, as it's a major feature and selling point for the product.

    The current workaround we're using is a combination of AWS performance insights and a SQL script. A "single pane of glass" would be much more efficient.

  4. network adapter name on overview page

    Currently network adapters' interface description is shown on the overview page of a monitored server. i am not interested of that information really, I would see the net adapter name as Get-NetAdapter cmdlet returns. So, Name should be there instead of the description.

  5. Search metrics on the Analysis page to enable quick way to add them

    There are a lot of metrics in different groups on the Analysis page and searching for a single metric by scrolling through the list is becoming more and more tedious. Please create a way to search for the metric.

  6. have more flexibility with user permissions.

    I'd like to be able to customize permissions. For instance, I would like an AD group to have the ability to set and remove alert suppressions (operational) but not have admin access to the monitor (administrative).

  7. I'd like it to be more obvious that an active alert is no longer a current and unresolved issue

    Whenever an issue is flagged, for example in the night, it changed the server to red. Once you click on that, the state is "active" (more un acknowledged I would say if not current). For me it is not clear if that issue is still ongoing or that it had been an issue and is now resolved.
    Can it be made clear what the end time is if the alert is no longer active? (right now only start time is listed)

  8. Control Alerts For Managed Instances Separately From On Prem.

    Some guidance for Azure SQL Managed Instances is different from on prem SQL Instances. For instance, there is information out there not to just do routine index maintenance and instead do statistics and only rebuild indexes when there is an obvious problem. Having a way to keep our current alerts for on prem and turn this off for Azure would be helpful.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your suggestion. Can you provide a bit more context for your suggestion? What goal are you trying to accomplish?

    Would the current ability to control alert settings by group not be sufficient for this?

    Thanks,

    Neil

  11. Add link to disk details on Server details page.

    From the Estate - Disk Usage tab we can select the specific drive to get usage details for that disk.
    When you navigate to a server from the Overview there is a section that shows the Disk Usage at a high level, but no links to drill into the specific disk.

  12. Email queuing

    Basically, I would like email to queue up in SQL Monitor. In the event an email fails to send (account locked out, mail server down, etc), having the email just fail to send is not the desired result. When problems are resolved, the email should send.
    For example, lets say IT is doing scheduled maintenance on the email server and during that window one of the SQL instances shuts itself down due to an error (for arguments sake, lets say out of disk). SQL Monitor will see it go offline and try to send out the alert but fail because…

  14. Save metrics used on Analysis page and enable quick way to select them from GUI

    I find myself selecting the same SQL metrics when monitoring or analyzing issues.

    It would be nice if I could save metrics and settings for them and next time just select them from the drop-down.

  16. Suspend Monitoring of Individual Cluster Nodes

    Alert suppression windows can be applied to groups, clusters, instances, and machines - including individual cluster nodes. Howerer it seems it is only possible to suspend monitoring for instnaces or clusters not individual nodes,

    We recently had a hardware fault and it would have been helpful to suspned monitoring of a specific node whislt the engineer resolved the fault.

  17. PaaS dbs on an instance appear seperately

    Hi Redgate Support,
    While adding PaaS SQL servers, each database appears individually. Will this change in near future where they appear together with other database on the instance like they do on-prem and on IaaS.

  18. Long-running query Alert - time based parameters

    I need to disable monitoring long running queries at night.
    My proposal is that you could add new parameter to alerts
    Time from - Time to which will exclude monitoring during this time.

    That will help to exclude ETL - ssis, and other long rununig queries which we set up at night.

  19. Add Active/Ended as SELECT drop-down options for Events

    The current Alerts page Select drop-down has None/All/Read/Unread

    For events, such as Disk Space, being able to Select "Ended" to get rid of the noise, helps focus on what needs to be addressed.

    If the list doesn't have any Event-type row, don't offer this pair of options.

    We’ll look into this. In the meantime you can set-up a custom filter for Active or Ended events and use the ‘Select All’ to select these rows.
