About ApexSQL Monitor

Monitor SQL Server, system, and database performance.

ApexSQL Monitor lets you monitor multiple SQL Server instances, view system performance metrics, identify performance issues and deadlocks. Use the comprehensive dashboard for viewing metrics and see real-time data in comprehensive graphs.

Monitor SQL Server performance
Monitor important SQL Server instance metrics: page life expectancy, page reads and writes per second, target and total server memory, user connections, buffer cache hit ratio, batch requests, and more. Identify performance issues that need troubleshooting.

Monitor system performance
Track operating system metrics: processor utilization, network usage, paging, disk and memory metrics, and find out how they affect SQL Server performance. Get enough information to be able to fix performance bottlenecks and deadlocks.

Monitor database performance
Monitor databases on multiple local and remote SQL Server instances, keep track of the database files size, growth rates, and plan your hardware capacities.

Real-time monitoring
Track performance changes as they happen. Monitor metric changes continuously in real-time to get a complete picture of your server's health and behavior.

Configurable monitoring
Choose SQL Server instances to monitor. Easily enable and disable SQL Server instances. Configure and monitor the most important system metrics.

Alerting
Identify the parameters that exceed the predefined limit. Be notified when a metric reaches its critical value. Be ready to diagnose and effectively fix the issues.

Comprehensive dashboard
View the metrics on an easy-to-read dashboard, visually distinguished per operating system and SQL Server. Quickly identify the metrics that should be addressed.
