Using SentryOne to Find Long Running Events

This is easily accomplished with SentryOne by enabling the Runtime Threshold Max conditions for SQL Agent jobs, Windows tasks, Reporting Services reports, or any other event types that have duration. SentryOne continuously monitors running events and generates alerts based on specific minimum or maximum runtime thresholds, either explicit or percentage-based. With "global" runtime thresholds you can be alerted whenever any event in your enterprise exceeds a runtime threshold. The global settings can then be easily overridden at the server or event object level. In addition to sending email or pager notifications, SentryOne can also be set to automatically terminate a long-running event.

Additionally, Performance Analysis can detect and notify any long running queries, as well as blocking beyond a defined threshold. Those thresholds can be set globally as well as at the server level.
