Intelligent Alerting

    Performance Advisor Custom Conditions

Intelligent Alerting allows you to build alerts specific to your own monitored environment, using values and metrics retrieved from multiple sources and subsystems. Via custom conditions, you can easily create advanced performance alerting, enhanced change detection and advisory rule sets. When building custom conditions, you can use any combination of ANDs and ORs, and any number of nesting levels, to compare the values retrieved from these multiple sources. Everything is point-and-click, so even complex conditions can be configured quickly.

  • Use multiplication, division, addition and subtraction to combine values from any subsystem, and use the results in comparison operators.
  • Easily combine multiple conditions together to create compound conditions.
  • Set up alerts for any query that exceeds a specific duration threshold.
  • Test any performance counter against a baseline value, or as a percentage of a baseline value.
  • Choose from 11 different actions that can occur when a condition is met.
  • See event markers on the Performance Advisor Dashboard charts, including enhanced tooltips with supplemental information.
  • Easily apply your conditions to an individual server, a group of servers, or your entire environment.
  • Test any new condition against monitored servers before assigning any actions.
  • Alerts write to the Events Log, where a historical record of the event with a snapshot of all associated metrics is maintained. provides an easily configurable and highly customizable way to access your performance data anywhere you have an Internet connection. Access many of the same views available in the SQL Sentry Client including all of the popular reporting options, the new alerting Events Log, and the Global Status view. More about



    Performance Advisor Baselines

To help manage change in your environment, Performance Advisor includes both pre-configured baselines and the ability to create your own custom baselines. Baselines can be viewed and managed from the Performance Advisor Dashboard. At a glance, you can see where performance deviates and resolve those issues before they become a problem. Custom baselines are configurable and, in combination with Intelligent Alerting, provide a comprehensive change management and notification system.

  • Out of the box pre-configured baselines are available for the previous period,
    day, week, month, quarter and year.
  • Create custom baselines on demand for any desired time range.
  • Overlay both pre-configured and custom baselines on the
    Performance Advisor Dashboard.
  • Full alerting capability for baseline metrics using Intelligent Alerting.
