<p>(A free, 14 day, fully-functional evaluation install is available at: www.sqltools.com.au)</p>
<p>Microsoft SQL Server database administrators will find that Idera’s latest 5.0 release of their award-winning 'SQL diagnostic manager' provides unprecedented capabilities for database performance monitoring, database management, and database administration. Helping to ensure SQL Server performance and availability across the enterprise. Idera designed this new version of their SQL Server monitoring and diagnostics solution based on feedback provided by many thousands of users worldwide.</p>
<p>“SQL diagnostic manager has drastically improved the way we manage our SQL Servers across the Department,” said Mitchell Bottel, DBA, California Department of Health Care Services. “SQL diagnostic manager exceeded our expectations when we began using it. In our opinion, we felt the tool couldn’t get any better until we saw SQL diagnostic manager 5.0. The new interface is truly impressive and puts a lot of valuable information at our fingertips. We are also impressed with the new alerting functionality which allows us to filter out less critical issues and send specific alerts directly to team members that can troubleshot and solve the problem quickly. Now, we will we be able to diagnose and resolve SQL Server performance issues faster than we did before.”</p>
<p>SQL diagnostic manager is a powerful database performance monitoring and diagnostic solution that provides proactive alerts about the health and performance of business-critical SQL Servers. SQL diagnostic manager minimizes costly server downtime by providing agent-less, real-time monitoring and customisable alerts, enabling administrators to quickly monitor, diagnose and fix database problems from a central management console. SQL diagnostic manager also pinpoints common performance issues, such as poorly performing code, and provides extensive historical metrics enabling trending and analysis of database performance over time.</p>
<p>“SQL diagnostic manager is an invaluable tool for our team. Our company relies heavily on SQL Server so we can’t afford to spend hours diagnosing SQL Server issues and cannot tolerate downtime”, said Michael Swinarski, DBA, Cox Communications. “SQL diagnostic manager keeps constant tabs on the health of our SQL Servers and can tell us just about anything we need to know about their status. Now my team can be proactive and anticipate potential database problems before they arise, rather than just reacting to issues and failed database jobs.”</p>
<p>Recently awarded the SQL Server Magazine Editor’s Choice Award and recognized as a 2007 Redmond Magazine Roundup Champion, SQL diagnostic manager 5.0 offers a host of compelling new features including:</p>
<p>Three-tier architecture providing high performance, scalability and flexibility:
• Allows any or all SQL Servers to be monitored from a central management console or from multiple management consoles.

• Customisable console displays warning thresholds to meet personal preferences or Service Level Agreement requirements.</p>
