Beta 4 of the Database Health Reports

Just a reminder, we are a couple weeks into beta 4 of the database health reports.  If you haven’t tried it out, take a look at http://databasehealth.stevestedman.com.

 

You can use the Database Health Reports to increase the overall health of your SQL Server from finding duplicate indexes to tracking down wait stats on your SQL server.  Beta 4 has been going well, and I would encourage you to give it a try for free.

Beta 2 of the Database Health Reports Released

Beta 2 of the Database Health Reports has just been released.  The new Beta contains several bug fixes, and several new features.  Here is a breakdown of what is new or changed since the last beta.

New Features

Bug Fixes

  • Performance tuned the Page Reads and Page Writes reports which were having some difficulty on larger databases.
  • Fixed bug with the Plan Cache Report which was only showing data for the master DB originally, now it shows for the appropriate database.
  • Performance tuning on the Table Size Advisor dialog. There is a lot going on with this, it may take some time, but it is faster than before.
  • Performance tuning on the Fragmented Indexes Report.
  • Improved error handling on connection failures such as invalid password or a bad username.
  • Removed backup status for TempDB as this really didn’t make any sense. Why would anyone backup TempDB.
