Foglight for SQL Server

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

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

Your SQL Server environment continues to grow and you’re working harder than ever to improve SQL Server performance. But you can’t fix what you can’t see. Once a SQL Server performance problem occurs, you’re already in reactive mode, spending time fixing issues instead of innovating and preventing problems. But what if you had a better SQL Server performance monitor? Switching from subpar SQL Server tuning tools to a more powerful, all-inclusive solution would enable you to proactively manage SQL Server health.

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