A couple of weeks ago, I did a webcast for my friends at MSSQLTips about the top 5 things that every SQL Server DBA should monitor.  If you’ve been to one of my presentations, you will notice that I usually focus on the WHY behind the topic. Understanding our overall goal makes it easy for us to achieve it. In this presentation, I started with defining the reason why we need to monitor our SQL Server environments before listing the top 5 things that we need to monitor.
