SQL Nexus


I blogged some time ago about PAL (Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) Tool), a great tool from CodePlex which allows you to quickly and automatically analyze  a set of Performance Monitor logs and to easily spot which counters are "misbehaving" in your environment.


This week I want to post about another useful tool, SQL Nexus, always downloadable from CodePlex, which instead makes it easier to analyze data collected from:


  • SQLDiag and

  • PSSDiag


How does in work


  1. You need SQL 2005 in order to run the tool (it will import your data in a user database called - without surprise - sqlnexus)


  1. Feed the tool with the data you want to analyze (SQL Trace files; T-SQL script output, including SQL DMV queries; and Performance Monitor logs)


  1. Once the data is loaded, you can fire up several different charts and reports to analyze it:


  • Blocking and wait statistics

  • Bottleneck Analysis

  • Profiler Trace Analysis


The latest version can be found on the official page: http://www.codeplex.com/sqlnexus
