I love DLM Dashboard. It’s the product that I’ve written myself, in various ways since SQL Server 6.5. My versions weren’t as pretty, often scripts that ran queries, returning loads of data in text format, from queries, trace, or Extended Events.
However there’s been a limitation that affected even me. When DLM Dashboard was released, it allowed you to monitor 5 databases. That increased to 10 if you registered, but that still wasn’t enough. I have 4-5 databases, many in a few environments, that I’m trying to monitor.
I had a meeting with the DLM Dashboard team a few weeks ago, and we discussed a number of items, including the limitations. We debated the topic, and I got word recently that the limitation has been raised.
DLM Dashboard now allows you to monitor 50 databases, which covers quite a few of your environments, and quite a few complete pipelines. I’d urge you to give it a try and download the product today.
We understand some of you might need more, or that there are other features you’ll want. The team wants to hear from you on UserVoice, which you can also get to by clicking the "Give Feedback" link in the app.
This is one of the best free products I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m excited that Redgate built it.
Now I don’t have to at any other job in the future.
