SQL Sentry System Status

Introduction

The System Status screen provides information about the work SQL Sentry is doing in the environment, including monitoring service tasks, their current state, and any associated messages. By default, the System Status screen only displays errors. Open the System Status screen by selecting System Status on the Navigator pane.
