Lightning Fast Root Cause Diagnosis

Using query level performance analysis, SQLGrease gets to the root cause of problems within minutes.

Below is a brief summary of the type of information SQLGrease collects:

  • Execution times
  • Wait events
  • Execution plans
  • Execution plan profiles
  • IO statistics
  • Deadlock analysis
  • Tempdb fills
  • Session snapshots

By correlating collected performance data at the query level and coupling it with intuititive visualization, problems can be diagnosed quickly. You can see a more detailed list of features here.

 Designed and Built For SQL Server

SQLGrease was built from the ground up specifically for SQL Server. Using the newest monitoring features in SQL Server, SQLGrease collects detailed information with extremely low overhead.

SQLGrease is the only subscription priced offering capable of providing deep dive performance monitoring of SQL Server. Despite being a cloud offering, SQLGrease is capable of monitoring your on premise and cloud deployments. All that is required is the install of a lightweight windows service somewhere in your network.

SQLGrease installs in minutes. Upgrades do not require reinstallations and do not require end user intervention. As a result, SQLGrease frequently introduces new features at no additional cost.

Our secure platform ensures no sensitive data ever leaves your data center. No credentials are ever transfered, all data is encrypted via SSL. Queries, execution plans, and deadlock graphs are optionally scrubbed for non-parameterized SQL. SQLGrease is able to collect data with as few permissions as only VIEW SERVER STATE access.

Recent Updates

Longer Free and Trial Plans

We are increasing the trial period from 7 days to 30. Additionally we are increasing our free version from 1 collection day to 7 collection days.

Lightweight Query Plan Profiler

Starting in SQL Server 2016 SP1 a light weight execution plan profiler interface was introduced. This allows you to see down to the node in an execution plan where time is being spent. By enabling trace flag 7412, SQLGrease will take advantage of this feature and collect execution details at this level.

Tempdb Fill Diagnosis

Occasionally certain queries will cause tempdb to fill. SQLGrease has a new feature which will show what queries are consuming the most tempdb even after the problem has occured.
