MS SQL is a relational database management system whose wide range of transaction processing, business intelligence and analytics applications allows IT teams to rely on it for data storage and access. Any performance degradation or unavailability of these servers can not only severely impact the performance of the entire service, but also result in customer dissatisfaction and lost revenue. As a result, there is a need for DB Admins to have a proper SQL Server management solution in order to keep their server performances intact.
Applications Manager's SQL Server Management System helps database administrators in managing and monitoring the performance and availability of their SQL databases. It is one among the best SQL Server management tools which provides an intuitive web client that helps you ease your MS SQL server monitoring efforts and allows you to visualize and manage SQL Server database farms effectively. The SQL Server performance monitor keeps track of usage patterns, offers insights to plan capacity and helps you get notified about impending problems in your database.
For optimal SQL Server management, it's necessary to monitor certain parameters which play a major role in your system performance. While buffer storages help in providing sufficient memory for a query to be properly processed, cache plays a major role in providing storage for faster execution of SQL Queries. With Applications Manager's SQL Server performance monitoring, it becomes easier to monitor parameters like these, which allows SQL DB Admins to keep track of server performance and diagnose issues effectively.
Given the enormous amount of queries processed by an SQL server, and how sometimes some queries can lead to unusual memory usage and processor time, it is important for SQL Admins to monitor performance stats of your SQL queries based on some parameters shown below in order to diagnose SQL performance issues. With the help of SQL Server health monitor, you can keep check on the health of all your SQL Servers and configure respective alarms whenever these parameters go beyond their intended threshold limits.
Keeping track of Disk space utilization remains one of the biggest challenges DB Admins face when it comes to SQL server management. Not only is the disk growth tracking important to know how much memory load your server is under, it is equally important for your SQL monitor to measure the free space on the disk volumes that comprise of the respective database log files in order to ensure there is enough space for data to grow inside your database.
Applications Manager helps you trace problematic SQL sessions down till query, identify resource intensive session(s) and troubleshoot any SQL server performance issues that arise due to any session consuming excess resources or in case of session overload. The SQL Server activity monitor allows you to keep track of the jobs that are scheduled to run, the last outcome of jobs that have run during the current session and to find out the current status of individual jobs.
Data loss can be catastrophic to businesses and taking backups of your database is an inevitable part of SQL server monitoring. With Applications Manager, you can save and retrieve all your essential data with the help of Backup/Restore feature. It allows you to monitor the total time taken, along with the start and end time, allowing users to keep a close watch on your backup durations.
While most SQL server monitoring tools provide performance statistics of your SQL server, Applications Managerenables users to gain end to end visibility into the performance of your SQL servers with its robust monitoring, alerting and analytical capabilities.
