Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports


Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports is a software program developed by Microsoft. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 78 files and is usually about 141.53 MB (148,406,081 bytes).
