Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I like the Idera SQL Diagnostic Manager for monitoring SQL Servers, especially in an enterprise environment with lots of servers.

I will let others comment on SQL diagrammers – there are several available, and they all have their pros and cons.

Pandora FMS can monitor SQL server performance. Here there is a plugin which can help to check main KPIs to monitor.

    Take a look at Quest Software's Spotlight on SQL Server Enterprise. It is very inexpensive compared to Idera's Diagnostic Manager. As for diagramming, use the built in diagrammer that comes with MS SQL.

    Hi - I work for Red Gate Software, so have an obvious bias here, but we have a new SQL Monitoring tool out, SQL Monitor, which may be the sort of thing you're looking for. We have an online, live demo at: Feel free to take a look!

    Redgate's SQL Monitor and SQL Sentry are the powerful tools that you can try.
