Seems I have turned into a bit of a news source. dbWatch Software sent me a news release on their dbWatch monitoring platform, which looks like it might be an interesting product for those who work in a heterogeneous database environment. Here’s the release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Rob Shuster, VP US Sales
6122B S. Eagle Pass Rd.
Gold Canyon, AZ
dbWatch Software Announces US based Sales & Support Oslo, Norway — June 23, 2008 â€“ dbWatch Software has launched a US sales and support organization. The flagship product, dbWatchâ„¢ (v8.1), is a heterogeneous database monitoring/reporting tool currently supports Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL.
Marek Jablonski, CEO states â€œAs a DBA you are often stuck with multiple platforms (both OS and database systems) and multiple unmanageable tools from database providers. dbWatchâ„¢ is a single tool allowing the DBA to monitor all databases and generate professional custom reports.â€
Clear Channel Norway IT Director, Jan Erik Rasmussen, reports â€œdbWatch provides an effective overview of our databases, and allows me to sleep well at night.â€
Three dbWatchâ„¢ editions are available: Standard ($195), Professional ($1,995 to $9,995), and Enterprise ($14,995). A free 30-day evaluation is available for download.

It was a timely contact, coinciding with Sheeri’s review of MONyog. It sounds like dbWatch is the kind of tool that would be valuable here at Pythian, where we work with all of the DBMSs it supports. But — I haven’t tried it yet, so I put it to you: have any of you used dbaWatch? If so, what are you opinions?
