You absolutely need to know about the servers you have under management in your estate. You need to know about the databases. Uptime, performance, behaviors, errors, corruption and a much longer list of items that will frankly fill this blog post, are very important to you.
I’ve been doing work in and around data and databases for over 30 years now (OMG, I’m so old). I feel like I know how monitoring works, what’s important, what’s not, what’s vital and what’s trivial. However, I know that you have different needs, different requirements, different problems. Those problems need different solutions.
Tell Us The Problems You’re Solving, and How
I’m assuming that you’re doing the work you need to do to solve these issues, but maybe you just don’t know how to solve the problem. Maybe the problem isn’t even defined well enough, but you’re feeling the pain.
Redgate Software wants to know what you’re doing to monitor your systems. We have a short survey up that will only take a couple of minutes to fill out. We’re putting together a report on the “State of SQL Server Monitoring” based on the information you give us. We’re going to share that information with all of you that take part.
You’ll be able to see where your problems are unique and where they’re common. You can help to influence development of our products to help you solve your problems better, easier, or faster.
Please, if you have a couple of minutes, follow this link now and fill out the survey.
Also, please share this survey with your peers. Everyone has a unique perspective on what’s working and what’s not.
Thanks for your time and attention.
