Database Tools

Idera SQL Check windows-icon

This can be a handy tool to install on the SQL server running a vCenter database I’ve found in the past if you don’t have a dedicated DBA resource on hand. It can help with some of the more obvious problems that crop up. The tool’s limited to 1 server and 20 health metrics. If you want more, you have to pay for SQL Diagnostic Manager.


Idera SQL Fragmentation Analyzer windows-icon

Another free tool that can help with fragmentation statistics for a database.

If you’re into PowerShell scripting, these free scripts might be useful.
