Our environment contains a number of SQL Server instances that are not mission critical (and therefore cannot justify a large cost) that we would still like to get some basic insight into. My plan had been to use Database Monitor side by side with Solarwinds DPA. Since there are not plans to keep this software updated going forward I do not plan to use it for this function.
I think it would be nice if this functionality was kept, or built into DPA with a flag as to whether it was a full featured or basic version of the tool for each instance. This would allow us to use the same or very similar tools for these different requirements.
