DIAB Screen Shot
DIAB offers a fresh new look at SQL Server management with new ideas and an innovative approach toward database monitoring. We took a different path, with four main goals: steer clear of web based products, email was not to be the primary source of notifications, be able to monitor all your servers while doing other task, and build DIAB from the ground up focusing on the needs of the DBA. What we came up with was a scanner approach with a very small desktop footprint that sits in a corner of your desktop always on, always monitoring. With the push of a button from the scanner bar an arsenal of tools are at your command enabling you to quickly diagnose the source of a problem.
