About SQL Metrics Hub

How anonymous usage metrics are gained and how they help.
  • Global usage data can be used to compare your servers against to see if your server lies outside of normal operating parameters.
  • See how common your servers wait types are and what normal values are for them.
  • miniDBA Desktop and server track average and max metric values per server as they operate.
  • When they shut down summary data is anonymized and uploaded, normally under 10k of data.
  • The only information that ties uploaded server data to an actual server is it's randomly generated Guid.
  • You must provide the server's Guid - found in server properties - in order to look up your server.
  • Paid versions of the software allow disabling this feature.
  • Future versions of miniDBA Desktop will read global usage data from the hub and display it in the application where useful.
