Data movement dashboard
View important Microsoft APS activity, including key CPU metrics, elapsed time, rows processed, and MB/sec processed. The dashboard also helps you visualize the correlation of that activity against the compute nodes and the associated distributions.
Get details about any live or historical requests and the associated request steps across the APS environment. APS Sentry lets you set query collection thresholds based on duration, and displays the executed request, client, application, login, label, and resource class, along with pertinent performance metrics.
Loads, backups, and restores
View information about both in-process and historical events across your APS environment through the Loads, Backups, and Restores grid.
Get critical information about the overall health of your APS environment through Advisory Conditions, which display the description, type, severity, and current/previous value of outlying conditions.
Get a rich view of all Microsoft APS activity in a convenient calendar format that helps you visualize how specific activities affect one another and lets you jump to run-time performance graphs to see specific query performance trends.
