Spotlight on Windows

Diagnose, Troubleshoot and Resolve Problems on Windows Servers

For a busy IT professional, it is nearly impossible to diagnose, troubleshoot and resolve every component affecting Windows Operating System (OS) performance using manual methods.  Without a clear view of I/O and system activity, you learn of performance issues only after problems erupt.

With its unique graphical view of the Windows OS internals, Quest® Spotlight® on Windows empowers you to quickly identify and eliminate bottlenecks in the Windows environment. Displaying the real-time flow of data within your Windows OS, Spotlight helps you to quickly identify and resolve performance problems.

Please Note: Spotlight on Windows is unsupported freeware. The license key is provided in the download package and expires one year after installation. To renew, please revisit this website.  An activation key will be made available prior to the expiration date of your current key.

Features

  • Speed Time to Resolution - By displaying the actual Windows OS activity, I/O and kernel, Spotlight can pinpoint the source of problems as they occur.  With its advanced understanding of Windows, Spotlight interprets the raw data, draws conclusions and recommends solutions, dramatically reducing time to resolution.
  • Minimize Downtime - Spotlight offers a calibration process that automatically sets a baseline of normal activity and sets thresholds for each system. This allows Spotlight to send warnings of impending problems with visual and audible alerts, helping you eliminate bottlenecks before they affect end users’ availability. From an overview screen, DBAs can view the most active user sessions, SQL statements, locks, waits and database activity to pinpoint and alleviate problem areas as they occur.
  • Reduce Costs and Increase Productivity - Spotlight displays all critical components of the Windows OS on one screen, eliminating the need to open and view multiple windows. From this screen, you can easily drill down to get detailed information on any component. By providing all the information to resolve a problem in one interface, Spotlight reduces the amount of time you spend on problem resolution, allowing you to focus on more important tasks that demand your specialized expertise.
