Free SQL Performance Tools

In the latest August review of SQL Server Magazine there are a list of Performance Monitoring tools which stand out as exceptional and free.
I recommend checking these out, i’ve tried quite a few of them and have been impressed, only listing the ones I have tested.

ClearTrace – You can use this graphical display tool to summarize query performance data froms erver-side trace and SQL server profielr sessions /default.aspx

Idera’s SQL Check – This tool runs as a secure screensave and monitors your SQL Server systems as well as offers a look at processes, error logs
and SQL Server Agent jobs.

Internals Viewer for SQl Server – You can use this tool to see how data is allocated, organized and stored in the SQL storage engine.

Check out the rest in this month issue, some are old some new all good and everything free.
