The Buffer Cache Hit Ratio, in Buffer Manager Statistics, indicates how often SQL Server goes to the buffer to get data. The higher the ratio, the less often SQL Server has to go to the hard disk to fetch data, which is good for performance.
You have the option of displaying charts for seven or thirty days with all the views. Alerts can be configured for each performance counter, so you can immediately take action against negative performance of the server.
Counters for SQL Agent and replications are two important counters not available with Applications Manager.
Alerts play a vital role in Applications Manager. These alerts can be defined for several stages like Critical, Warning, and Clear depending on the severity of the alert. By clicking the graph, you will be taken to the detail view of the alerts. Alerts can be filtered by monitor groups and monitor types. It would be helpful if one could filter by date/time and technician.
