Monitor SQL Server Performance With Idera’s SQL Diagnostic Manager



Technical Support

Simply put, Idera’s technical support was excellent. The support staff was willing to help, via e-mail, online chat, or phone. Idera also offers comprehensive product support documents on their Web site. Also, upon installation, I recommend you click on the “Interactive Tours” section to view a short demo of the functionality of SQL diagnostic manager.



Low Footprint

SQL diagnostic manager does not install any components, DLLs, scripts, stored procedures, triggers or tables on the SQL Server instances it will monitor, so it does not decrease the performance of your SQL server databases.
