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.

Allow configuration -> monitored servers to have configurable retries and wait timeouts.
We have a vpn between our sqlmonitor and several of our sql servers. I'm not sure how often sqlmonitor will retry or wait between retries when that vpn is unavailable due to any number of reasons. When the monitoring becomes unavailable, I would like to be able to allow sql monitor to retry every X seconds for up to X hours or X times as it attempts to reconnect.33 votescompleted · Daniel Rothig responded
As of SQL Monitor 5.0, the retry logic is much more robust, and most users have reported no more issues with SQL Monitor reconnecting
Add the ability to create new alerts
Instead of limiting the available alerts to a pre-defined list, allow users to create new alerts and threshold metrics based on customized queries. In my opinion, this is about the only glaring omission in the current version of sql Monitor.13 votescompleted · Fiona Gazeley responded

Have ability to sort list of databases on SQL Instance overview
It might be helpful to have the ability to sort these by name, esp. when this list happens to be quite long. It seems like under the current design they are sorted by database ID.
I have to scroll past 50+ db's to see the remaining info on the UI - can this be improved? Collapsing the list or adding some filtering, e.g. filter to limit to x# which is then changeable by page index, or filter by other than OK status43 votescompleted · Daniel Rothig responded
This list is sortable as of SQL Monitor 4.0 (it is also truncated by default, making it easier to scroll past it)
Show job name not job ID value for job related alerts
When viewing SQL Agent job related alerts the identifier is the Id value stored in SQL Server, it would be more useful if this displayed the actual job name.1 vote
Improve the resolution of the analysis graphs
The analysis graphs don't plot enough points to be able to clearly pick out peaks and troughs in the data -- it all gets averaged out.2 votescompleted · David Bick responded
Absolutely. We’ve upped the resolution from 50 data points to 500 or so.
