1 SQL Server Performance Monitoring Tools: Third Party Tools: These tools (SQL Sentry, Toad, Embarcadero, SpotLight etc ) usually span all combination of environments and can produce valuable reports. Data Collection Tool: This tool is available for SQL Server 2008 and up, it is a data collection tool leveraging the DMV (Dynamic Management Views) with SQL Server to collect operational data and store in a Data Warehouse database for reporting. Most installations do not use it but some do. SQL Profiler: Available on all instance of SQL Server 2000 and up, it is very useful but also very resource intensive and usually not run in production environments without specific constraints or for a limit period of time. Dynamic Management Views: Available on SQL Server 2005 and above, using TSQL queries these views can provide a wide variety of information. Perfmon: Available on all Windows servers, can gather OS operational counter as well as SQL Server counters if the SQL Server counters are installed on the system. Some homegrown tools: Some DBA s will use their own tools that are a combination of above or none of the above to gather performance statistics and store them in a user database, later to be used for reporting. Perfmon Counters and Descriptions:
