In my spare time I've been working on a simple SQL Server monitor tool. You can find out more information at http://www.scalesql.com/isitsql/.
My goal was to create a simple program that can tell me if SQL Server is currently having an issue.
- There's no dependency on SQL Server. Everything is stored in memory.
- See CPU usage, disk usage, and waits over the last hour. This is usually enough to let me know if there's a problem going on.
- Simple web interface so it's quick to bring up
If you get a chance, please take a look. And I'm happy for any feedback.
