The focus of SQL Diagnostic Manager 10.5 is improving usability of SQL Diagnostic Manager as well as extending support for database-as-a-service deployments in cloud environments.
Prescriptive Analysis is more intuitive for on-demand analysis and integrated with the History Browser for further investigation. This version includes recommendations for DBaaS instances.
The Analyze tab in the Desktop console lists all the Analysis results that were performed, and now has one single button to run the Analysis.
Follow these steps to run an Analysis for your monitored server:
SQL Diagnostic Manager more efficiently monitors your DBaaS databases.
When adding cloud servers, select the Server Type for each of the added instances.
In the Desktop Console, you see only supported screens and panels displayed for Azure SQL and Amazon RDS. Also, the Custom Dashboard design screen has been revised to remove metrics that are not applicable for DBaaS.
The primary objectives of DM 10.5 are to reduce false positives from spikes, simplify management of Alert Templates for enterprise deployments, and extend alerts for DBaaS environments.
