SQL Sentry Review
The blocking and deadlock report feature is very convenient to use


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for troubleshooting performance issues, blocking issues, and deadlock issues.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has identified: 

  • Blocking
  • Deadlock
  • Memory pressure
  • High CPU consumption issues.

What is most valuable?

The blocking and deadlock report feature is very convenient to use in pinpointing which query is causing something and what other queries are waiting for it.

What needs improvement?

If we can get details on wait types from system views, it will help identify a more detailed root cause.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
