SSMS Performance Dashboard

Pedro Lopes announces that the SQL Server Performance Dashboard is now built into SQL Server Management Studio:

Back in 2007, we released the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports, which were designed to provide fast insight into performance issues from some newly created system views – DMFs (Dynamic Management Views). These were updated for SQL Server 2008 and later to SQL Server 2012, and while being very helpful they had a significant drawback – required separate download and install. This meant that when needed, most probably they were not installed in a specific SQL Server, and therefore were unusable when they were needed the most.

With the new SSMS 17.2, we are releasing the Performance Dashboard embedded as a built-in Standard Report. This means that it is available for any SQL Server instance starting with SQL Server 2008, without any extra downloads or running any extra scripts. Just connect to your server in SSMS and open the Performance Dashboard.

Aside from making it built into Management Studio, they’ve also added a few helpful things to the product, so it is worth checking out.
