I'm probably forgetting some but here are the main ones I know of: - Idera - Red Gate - SQL Sentry - Dell (Spotlight/Foglight?) Which is best? It depends what you're looking for so that's not a question that can be answered here. But they're all reputable products so I'd suggest you look at the features and see if they seem to cover all your needs. Then get a trial version of those you like the look of, and see what they're really like. If they won't do you a trial version, I guess they don't want your money!

Don't forget Solarwinds (formerly Confio) But, yeah, depends on what you're looking for. They all have their good points and bad. And it depends on how much you're prepared to pay...

For me, I'd keep with **Pandora FMS**. Provides as many features as Solarwinds, with a cheaper price. Besides, they have an Open Source version if you don't need support at all: [ http://pandorafms.com/monitoring-solutions/server-monitoring/][1] [1]: http://pandorafms.com/monitoring-solutions/server-monitoring/
