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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Be able to give users different access to different groups

    I would like to be able to give some developers Read-only access level to some servers (or server group). For example Production servers.

    But give them Standard access level to other servers (or server group) so they can clear alerts for example and configure their own alerts.

  9. Enter and assign purchased SQL licenses to VM hosts, VM or server

    The new SQL licensing tab would even make it possible to detect unlicensed instances depending on listed availability or improper VM host movement rules.

  12. For Installed Version doesn't show the patching details of the active and passive node of FCI

    For Installed Version doesn't show the patching details of the passive node of FCI
    So if cluster has 3 nodes, you should one line for each
    this will be very helpful if we have missed out on patching inany node then the SQL Monitor can high light this to us

  18. Separate notification option for both Medium and High Severity alerts

    It would be better to have Separate notification options for both Medium and High Severity alerts instead of a single distribution for both Medium and High severity alerts so that separate group get notifications depending on the severity of the alert.

  19. Report showing least or busiest server.

    I would like a report that uses the historical data collected by SQL Monitor that would show the least busy or busiest servers so that I will be able to plan where to put additional workload, or re-distribute work load.

  20. Show Compressed Backup size on Estate > Backups Screen

    Currently the backup size displayed on the Estate > Backup screen is the uncompressed backup size which is useful but it would also be useful to include the compressed backup size because that's going to be the raw file size on disk when backup compression is enabled.

    Knowing the compressed backup size is pretty useful when trying to assess how big a backup will be on disk.
