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. Median from jobs - calculating Job duration unusual ONLY for sucess

    I have noticed that SQL Monitor calculate median from all jobs ragardles if it is failed or sucess...
    From my point of view it should analyse only jobs which finished success and calculate median from duration.
    I need to know when job succeded what is duration median and if it is ok or not.

    Please change job duration median to calculate from jobs which ended with sucess.

  4. Add alias with powershell module

    We install our sql server automatically via powershell, so we also add them there to the monitoring. We would like to safe us work, by giving the server a custom alias while adding to the monitoring as it can be done through the website.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow custom scopes in OpenID Connect authorization request

    Currently SQL Monitor only sends the scopes "openid profile".
    In my usage the "groups" scope is needed as well.

    Make this parameter configurable to support any number of custom scopes.

    Seconds will appear in the error log time on the Server Overview page from v11.2.4.

  8. If a job fails the alert should not be cleared until the job has run successfully again

    If a job fails the alert should not be cleared until the job has run successfully again. It doesn't make sense clearing the alert just because a job has been restarted. The alert should remain active until a completely successful run.

    This has been changed and now works as described here. In SQL Monitor since 11.2.13 (released 26 Sep 2021).

  10. I want to be able to apply tags to SQL servers in SQL Monitor to better sort

    I want to be able to create more groups that a server is a member of. For example, I want to see all Production servers, or all servers associated with a specific team or department. I can group by only 1 item now. But, if I could tag servers, that would allow me to be more granular in my reporting.

    We do the same thing in VMware now. We can still use the same grouping structure that exists today, just create the ability to provide multiple tags to each server/instance.

  11. filter webhook notifications

    I would like to be able to filter which webhook notifications get sent out via an option in alert settings - notifications.
    e.g. for each alert, we have the option to send an email to a default address, an alternative address, or don't send an email for this alert.

    As of SQL Monitor 11.1.8 Webhook notifications can be enabled and disabled for an alert type within alert settings (see screenshot).

  12. Azure ad intergration

    My wish is that my users can sign-in with azure user account.

  13. Be able to identify Base Monitors by a user friendly name in a MSP Solution

    For example in the "Manage Servers" screen, when using a MSP Solution, it's only possible to view the actual names entered on the Base Monitor Configuration page.
    Without having to resort to a DNS work-around for this issue, it would be nice to add the option to use a "Display Friendly name" instead of the name of the Base Monitor Server.
    That way, people who don't know which individual server belongs to which individual client or base monitor, can easily identify them based on their displayname.

  14. Webhook notifications need to be configurable at an alert level

    While Webhook notifications is a cute idea, it has no value to me if I can't customize what alerts get it. Please add a Webhooks column to the individual alert settings.

    This can be done within the alert settings page for each alert type (see screenshot).

  15. Recognize Low Alerts visually in overview

    Low Alerts show as blue dots on the Latest Alerts panel, but in the overview they show Green like Healthy.
    Especially when showing Small Tiles (we monitor 60+ instances) they do not stand out from Healty ones (see the attached examples).

    For that reason I dont use many Low Alerts.
    It would be more consistent to use blue in the overviews also.

  16. search Top Queries

    I have a process that reports on stored proc outliers. When I go to SQL Monitor, it is very difficult to search the top queries to find the particular stored proc.

    For instance, if I do a ctrl+f and search for "I.Invoices", the search may find that snippet in "hidden" areas (in the dropdowns) but I cannot tell where the found items are.

    A query syntax search of the top queries would be extremely helpful.

  17. See on the overview page incase of a AlwaysOn or a windows cluster which node is the active\primary

    We have several windows clusters and AlwaysOn clusters. It would be very helpful to see on the overview page which node is active.

    It can be easily done by adding a color to the AG icon on the tile.

    I know that it can be seen on the cluster overview but I really think it belongs on the Overview page.

  19. Monitor Azure Managed Instances

    Redgate Monitor still does not appear to fully support Azure Managed Instances. As our primary business is about to move across solely to Azure Managed Instances, this is now a seriously high priority for us.

    We are heavy users of Redgate Monitor for our business, so this is now starting to be become a bit of a worry for us.
