Hi Kyle, I think I asked this the last time you posted your product, but I didn't see a response: Does DB Optmizer require Diagnostics and Tuning Pack licenses or does it operate without touching those restricted views, procedures, etc.?

Also, does it perform any monitoring & alerting, or just interactive performance troubleshooting?

I do my performance troubleshooting from the command-line (with help from free statspack & 10046 & 10053 traces) so sometimes I get the feeling I'm becoming a DBA "dinosaur" even though I'm only 32. What I'm looking for is a lightweight, reliable, easily customizable (open source) monitoring tool to monitor hundreds or thousands of databases and email me when there are potential/upcoming problems and page me when there is a critical problem. I'm currently reviewing a combination of Monocle and Nagios:

I haven't had much time to work on it yet. Anyone else have a chance to play with this product yet?

As an alternative to OEM for performance analysis, I'd suggest , DB Optimizer . . .
