6.How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen?
The biggest benefit is watching the performance day to day and having it recognize when plans change.
It is obvious when plans change as performance suffers but it is good to see which plans are good and which one are not.
We use it to sent out to all developers the 10 most frequently executing stored procedures as opportunities for performance modifications.
It is great for finding the needle in a haystack type questions.
While not advertised for auditing, it will tell you what procedures/queries were running each minute and who was logged in running them.
