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. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. see username and hostname in "top 50 queries" and "top 10 waits"

    In SQL Monitor, I want to see username and hostname in "top 50 queries" and "top 10 waits"

    Please add username and hostname in "top 50 queries" and "top 10 waits." These two columns will be useful to trouble shoot SQLs that are causing troubles
    Thanks,

  6. Fix Alert Screen to not move up and down

    When you are working on the alerts tab, once you click the checkbox and clear alerts the green check shows up that the alert was successful. But that makes the page move up and down, so if you are already trying to click other alerts the page is moving and you click the wrong thing.

  7. AWS FSx drive status

    In our company we are using AWS FSx drives for our SQL Server databases. The FSx drives are not real drives, they are more like a shared folder, I'm wondering if there is a way to add those drives on SQL Monitor so we can check disk space and get alerts. AWS has been adding more features for FSx drives to be used on SQL Servers. Right now the only way to monitor that is using AWS console or alerts, which are not very friendly and only available for some system administrators.

  8. Reduce the suggestions on how to fix queries when viewing Top 10 Queries

    SQL Monitor pops up the text "x issues with this query". Addressing them could improve performance. It then lists some things that might have an impact (e.g. select * instead of listing just the columns that are required) but also lists other things that won't change performance (e.g. not specifying a schema name).

    Can this list be reduced to just what is potentially performance related? Maybe have a 2nd field for best practices if that's considered improtant.

  9. Add Text Boxes/Areas to Reports

    I have reports that I circulate from SQL Monitor. I have to edit these before I issue them to add additional information. E.g. Under the "Lock Waits/Sec" chart I have a description of what a "Lock Wait" is, what impact it has, what's an acceptable value, etc. I tried supplying a supplementary sheet with this info but the management team prefer it under each chart / metric.

  10. Disk space alert

    The disk space alert can be configured on Server-Level as a host machine alert, but the alert is fired for every Instance on that host.

    As example, we have 5 instances on a sever, each instance has it's own drive, e.g.
    instance1 on drive d:
    instance2 on drive e:
    instance3 on drive f:
    etc.

    If one instance, e.g. instance2 on drive e: is filling up it disk, the alert is fired for all instances. We would like to see an alert only for the instance that is affected and not 5 alerts.

  11. Alerts and Notifications Export

    Would love to be able to export all notifications with details into Excel or CSV. Very beneficial to create dashboards, metrics and KPI for all notifications.

  14. To show top server Process memory usage

    Under the "Processes", it would that we can sort the top memory usage as well. There are times we got alert that the server memory usage is high and we need to know what other OS processes is utilizing the server memory other than SQL.

  15. "Take Screenshot" Feature in Analysis Section

    I have the need very often to take screenshots for non-technical management slideshows.

    Could you add a button in the analysis panel to take a screenshot of the analysis timeline?

    I would like to obtain something like this (with a single click)

  16. Remember the Filter Layout

    On the Alert Inbox it would be nice to be able to re-arrange the filters and for the options to be remembered no matter where I login.

  17. 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"

  18. Get notification for when a SQL Agent job is in a retry state

    Hi, it would be really useful if SQL Monitor could identify when any currently executing job steps are in a retry state. We have many such jobs and the time lost whilst they are in such a state is frustarating as if we had notification we could take action. I appreciate I can roll my solution but would be nice if SQL Monitor could do it :)

  19. Ability to export backup history detail for providing audit information easily.

    possibilities I can think of that might help to add are each backup having it's own export button when the backup history graph is expanded out, including the backup history on the current excel sheet or possibly having a summary report for it in the Reports section
