New build of xSQL Profiler published

We just released a new build of xSQL Profiler that does two main things:
  • significantly improves the process of uploading trace data from the servers being traced to the central repository; we had received reports from users indicating that under stress conditions the pulling of the trace data from each individual server into the central repository could time out and hence there would be gaps in the trace data collected. The improved process performs significantly better and should eliminate any issues experienced with the previous build.
  • allows the user to see the status of a given trace on each one of the servers on which the trace runs. In cases when xSQL Profiler may loose the connection with a server it will not be able to stop the traces that it has started on that server. Of course it would stop them when the connection is re-established but there was no easy way for the user to see if the trace was still running on some of the servers while stopped on some others. Now the user can simply "drill down" on a trace and see what is happening on each server.

xSQL Profiler allows you to define a trace and schedule it to run on any number of SQL Servers simultaneously while automatically collecting trace data from all servers into a central repository. xSQL Profiler supports SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2000.
