Comments: it was times when server was down, database is offline, jobs are timing out any issue i was able to find the root cause in the tool and was able to fix it and this is something very useful for business to recover quick in case of failure.

Pros: I have been using the diag tool for past few years now and I completely satisfy with the in-depth and detail metrics it has to keep track of all the events happening on SQL server which other wise we have to either do it thorough extended event or trace. it helps me detect the problem before the user reports it and help us to stay proactive and recover quickly if any failure.

Cons: its hard to tell what I don't like about this software.

Comments: SQL Diagnostic Manager is an invaluable tool for fast paced environments where the focus is on preventative maintenance with minimal effort. If you find yourself always trying to catch up on mundane & repetitive tasks in your SQL environment then diagnostic manager is a must. Not only will it alleviate your DBA's of repetitive tasks, it will also track re-occurring patterns to advise/warn you of forthcoming issues, allowing you to respond in a controlled & timely manner before the situation becomes critical. The only cons i can think of is why didn't we have it before !.

I love SQLdm!

Comments: I keep SQLdm up on my pc ALL the time! As a DBA, I use it just as much as I do Management Studios. There are just so many benfits! It allows me to quickly find trouble spots and help to ease them. I can use reports to evaluate how changes have affected resources over a period of time. I can quickly spot a troublesome task and individually trace it or kill it. I can go "back in time" and determine an issue after the fact. I just really love SQLdm!
