SQLCentric v 2.0.1 Pearl Knowledge Solutions Inc's SQLCentric is minimally invasive to the SQL Servers it monitors and is a zero-impact tool. There are no agents, triggers or stored procedures installed on the monitored servers, and SQLCentric integrates seamlessly with your email system and provides auto alerts and follow-up messaging.

SQLCentric features include:


  • Dynamic Disk Management monitors all logical disk partitions on a server.

  • A CPU monitor that reports on the _Total instance and provides the total overall CPU processor use for a good overall indicator of how busy your server is.

  • Monitor SQL Server logs for any error, warning or message that is found.

  • BCH (Buffer Cache Hit Ratio) Monitor for viewing memory settings.

  • Max Job Alerts sets the number of times a user wants to be alerted for a particular failed job.

  • The ability to identify troublemakers that cause poor performance by monitoring blocked processes and long-running queries. It shows the offending T-SQL of the lead blocker causing the contention at the time it was detected.

  • Cluster aware and built-in cluster failover support monitors and alerts DBAs when a cluster fails over from one node to another.

  • Scheduler Manager lets the user manage run-time schedule of SQLCentric right from the administration module.

  • Historical Run-Time Reporting and trend analysis lets the user select servers, statistical measures and date parameters to generate trend analysis output based on the run-time of the monitoring system.

  • The ability to authenticate monitored servers via SQL Authentication, Windows or Mixed, so users can monitor SQL Servers in non-trusted domains, DMZ/firewalls and SQL Servers all around the world.
