In an experiment in SQL Server community involvement, the members of Red Gate Software’s software development usability team have created a new website called www.thefutureofmonitoring.com. This team, among other teams at Red Gate Software, are working Version 2 of its popular SQL Response software.
The goal of the new website is to get your input on what you would like to see in a SQL Server monitoring tool. For example, what do you dislike about software installers, or what memory counters do you think are the most important? In fact, you can even help the usability team design a new dashboard.
Whatever you think about SQL Server monitoring tools, feel free to share those thoughts with the usability team at their new website. In fact, I have already given the team my input on the next version of SQL Response, and they would really like to hear from you too.
