Thanks for the suggestion – we’ll monitor how popular it gets

The triggering of a trace should not be at any alert, but instead you should specify in the alert configuration that the high, medium, or low level alert would qualify for a quick trace. For instance, dbcc_integrity check alerts shouldn't trigger a trace, but a long running job at the high level could be set to run the trace.
This is a big deal, as some competing products build this in, allowing you to not impact server performance to trace except on the most important issues.
Followup. This is really important to support going forward. The overhead for servers is much lower, so the monitoring can actually be more detailed with less impact to server performance. Reducing the monitoring load while gathering more metrics would be a great gain. Any idea of the roadmap for this?
