How do get go about being able to view those performance reports on SQL Server 2005 Express Edition; you know, these things (with the charts and bar graphs):
- What are they called
- What do i have to install to access to them
- How do i access them?
- What are the SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports
- How does #4 differ from #1
- When would one want to use #4 over #1
In SQL Server 2005 Somethingorother Edition, i right-click the server is "Enterprise Manager", select reports, and browse through them:
No such context menu option exists in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.
Note: i try to ask the high-level question of "how to make it work", because the answer can, in turn, trigger a dozen or two other questions. (Microsoft's been good at keeping information about SQL Server secret in recent years)
