Foglight for SQL Server

Proactively tune your SQL Server databases for more uptime and better performance.

Ensure SQL Server health with real-time diagnostics and performance tuning.

Your SQL Server environment continues to grow and you’re working harder than ever to ensure your databases run smoothly with maximum uptime. But you can’t fix what you can’t see. Once a performance problem occurs, you’re already in reactive mode, spending time fixing issues instead of innovating and preventing problems. But what if you could proactively manage the health of your SQL Server environment?

With Foglight for SQL Server you can quickly diagnose and resolve performance problems and optimize your SQL Server workloads to prevent future issues. With real-time and historical diagnostics and reporting, you can more confidently ensure the health of your entire database environment.
