SQL and Oracle Monitoring tool

SQL and Oracle Monitoring tool

SQL and Oracle Monitoring tool

(OP)
Hey all,

Does anyone know of a tool that can monitor SQL servers?

Similar to redgate SQL response or idera dignostic manager - but does both SQL and oracle.

Basically i am now looking after both SQL and oracle, and it would be nice to have one place to look to keep a tab on all my servers.

John,

I am not sure thats really what i am looking for.

What i am looking for is to be able to monitor the servers?  So is the CPU working too hard, are the indexes fragmented, is the memory full, are the disks being hammered, are the databases locking  etc.

Baiscally - i want a big flashing light to tell me one of the servers has an issue - or could have one soon.

RE: SQL and Oracle Monitoring tool

You can get Spotlight for SQL Server and Spotlight for Oracle.  They both use the same framework and you'll only have to open a single spotlight console to view both SQL and Oracle.

Both are made by Quest Software (www.quest.com).

MrDenny,

Have just tried quest and downloaded the SQL and Oracle sportlight.

It seems to instal 2 different spotlights, and each one only deals with that type of server.  Pity as it could have been quite good.

Also it doesnt seem to warn about fragmentation (one of our servers, that i havent fixed yet has an index that is 99% fragged) of indexes.

havent tried Embarcadero Performance center yet.

RE: SQL and Oracle Monitoring tool

Are your Oracle servers hosted on a Windows box? can you get the details you need from windows performance counters?
Obviously this won't be any use if they are on Unix servers but it may be worth investigating.

Yes they are on a windows box.

I am no oracle expert but i was hoping to get more then just the windows stuff.
