  • Query signature view that rolls matching queries into a query signature.

Official release of the SQL DM web console – The web console capabilities that were introduced in DM 8.5 as a tech preview are now officially released in DM 9.0.  There will be three primary views for the web console; Today, Top X, and Alerts.

I want remind everyone that this beta release is still in test and therefore should not be installed over your production installation. There will be no upgrade path from the beta version to the final release. So please test on a separate environment from any running licensed installations of Diagnostic Manager.
