Add mirroring monitoring
I may be wrong but I can't see that you have the capability for mirroring monitoring in the tool. This would make a more persuasive case for replacing Idera if this tool was included.
We are excited to announce that mirroring metrics from Grant Fritchey are now available to install. Please install it from http://sqlmonitormetrics.red-gate.com/tag/mirroring/. These metrics are also described in detail in Grant Fritchey’s article on Simple Talk https://www.simple-talk.com/sql/sql-tools/custom-metrics-for-monitoring-database-mirroring/.

Hi Rob and Kev,
As you may be aware that SQL Monitor now has custom metric and alerts feature. I was just wondering if you have tried writing queries for mirroring.
If so, would you mind sharing it with us also. You can share your query via this link:
Thanks Rob and Kevan. You would be glad to know that we are currently working on custom alert feature for SQL Monitor V3. Some of these alerts then could be very easily done via custom alerts feature.
Definitely would like to add mirroring to this - not only stop erroneously alerting when mirror is in restore state, but also add extra to say if a mirror state is SUSPENDED, DISCONNECTED, or has been in SYNCHRONIZING or PENDING_FAILOVER for too long

Thanks a lot Rob for the suggestions. We will definitely consider this for V 3.0.
