Okay, here goes. First a disclaimer: I am NOT getting paid for this..... I think this is a cool product. I don't promote things on this list if I earn income from them. Having said that....

I have been participating in a beta (maybe alpha?) program with Quest Software for a new product called StorageXpert. I'm going to include the "marketing/press release" info below, they are opening up the beta program to anyone who wants it (don't know if it runs against NT as yet).

Having worked with it (and no, I don't know the pricing schedule at all) I think you guys might want to check it out. I've used it to find hot spots on my disks, and link them back to the tables and queries that are causing the problems. I've been able to drag a programmer over and SHOW him what his query is doing to my database. You know the old "a picture is worth a thousand words" cliche? This is a GRAPHIC display of usage (all those lovely equalizers :) ).

I showed it to my sysadmin and he freaked.. loved it.

I've been running it for about 4 months now without problems.

So... press release below, those of you who want to play with it, have fun, those who don't, please just hit delete.
