SQL Monitor 10

Global dashboard

The global dashboard shows a high-level summary of your monitored servers, color-coded to show the severity of the most severe current or recent alert associated with each server. It updates automatically every five seconds.
The dashboard only shows active continuous alerts, and event alerts that occurred within the last 15 minutes.
If the server is part of a cluster, or is the primary for an availability group, the card also shows alerts for the cluster and its nodes or for the availability group.
