Manually reissue a check

I wonder if there is a possibility to re-issue a check of one of the built-in alerts.
The issue is that I got a "Fragmented Indexes" alert this weekend. I fixed it, at least I think I did ... but the next run of this metric will be next weekend. Until then I can only mark the alert as "cleared" or accept the fact that until next weekend this red server keeps drawing my attention in the overview screen.

I think the community is looking for one of the following options:
- manually re-issue the check for this metric ad hoc to make sure this alert is resolved.
- when marked "read", the alert is no longer coloring the server red in the overview (not really nice option though)

I'm aware of this thread of some time ago:
Unfortunately we still cannot use the GUI to see (or ultimately modify) the frequency or run times of the schedules of the default alerts.
Best option imh opinion is a "re-check now" button for any metric, so that we know for sure that the alert has been resolved or more attention is required for this issue.

Any ideas are welcome.

  • Hi Yveau,

    Thanks for posting on the Redgate forums.

    Firstly can you confirm which version of SQL Monitor you are running? You can find this out on the configuration>about page.

    After clearing all the alerts for a server on the overview page the server should go green without having to rerun any checks. It might be useful to have a screenshare session or share some screenshots if this is acceptable to you? We can take this off of the forums.
    Kind regards,
