Interested in knowing what I'm working on or thinking of implementing for the next version of SQL Agent Insight? Read more below.

In Development / Researching

New

  • Azure SQL managed instance support
  • UI : implement column chooser for all data grids and ability to save layout.
  • Insight : Show / log jobs that have a successful outcome but have failed steps within them.

Enhancement / Improvement

  • Convert entire SQL Agent Insight project to .NET 6
  • Preferences : omit asking to create suspend/resume jobs when opening Job Monitor.
  • UI : update legacy taskbar notification icons.

Future Considerations

New

 
Job Monitor : a single instance of Job Monitor that consolidates all jobs from all currently monitored instances.
Preferences : email authentication via OAuth2.
Job History : Gantt chart similar to Job Conflicts but for Job History. User selectable jobs; Gantt chart timeframe based on earliest job history log entry.
Database Mail : purging of database mail items and mail log history.
Job Monitor : copy a job(s) between monitored instances.
Job Monitor : multi-row selection of jobs to perform actions against selected jobs.
Preferences/Insight Config : notification quiet hours/days. Implement globally with configuration option to override per Insight.
Insight : open the Job Monitor upon opening the Insight.
Job Monitor : change owner of a job or multiple jobs.
Job Conflicts : a single instance of Job Conflicts that consolidates all jobs from all currently monitored instances.
Job Monitor : additional column, Number of Alerts.
Schedules : new context menu with options, Job properties, Job history, Purge job history.
Insight : logging of heartbeat messages toolbar indicator; blue/green heart icon.
Track the last successful monitored date/time of an instance (i.e., when Insight first opens); store within PREVIOUSINSTANCES.XML. Use this information in the Previously Monitored Instances pane.
Job Monitor : Ability to dock/open the Job Monitor without opening an Insight.

Enhancement / Improvement

 
Job Monitor : new metrics including, has steps, no history, success rate < 100%, successful job runs with failed job steps, has alerts, has targets, ms-db backup size, ms-db compressed backup size, number of deleted jobs since last poll.
  • number of deleted jobs since last poll would additionally log the names of jobs missing.
Insight Log : row header icons for long running jobs.
Job Conflicts : additional context menu items, job history.
Job History : access job properties.
Insight Log : buttons similar to Log Viewer to filter entries based on severity.
UI : filter pane checkbox consistency (style/colors) to match filter popup dialogs.
Job History : remove CR and LF characters from message text for better appearance.
Suspended / Paused Jobs : ability to resume job(s) from this dialog. (checkbox column ??)
Job Properties : display the Job GUID.
Dashboard : ability to pick filter for alarms based on predefined time frames, e.g., past 24 hours, past 8 hours, etc. using a filter pane.
Dashboard : change Date column type from text to DateTime for better filtering options.
Log Viewer : change Log Date/Time column type from text to DateTime for better filtering options.
