What version of SQL Server Reporting Services is supported?
Our current release targets SSRS 2008 and requires SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 to run. For a
full list of application and hardware requirements, please see our
SCRUBS Requirements page.
What reports are included?
Our report catalog is here.
How can I optimize my Reporting Services reports?
Our Knowledge Base has an article on the key columns and definitions.
We've got some additional notes on optimization here.
How difficult is it to install?
If you already manage a SQL Reporting Services environment, this should be no
problem. Copy the files, attach the database, run a script and deploy the
reports. For the full installation notes review either:
SCRUBS for SQL Server 2008 Premium Edition - Step by Step
On how many servers/computers can I install the Premium Edition?
Premium Edition is licensed per server. There are 3 main components: The SQL
Server database, the SSIS package and the SSRS reports. Each may individually be
installed on a separate computer (if you have a scaled out deployment of SQL
Server), or all may be installed on the same server.
If you install the same component on multiple machines, you will need to
purchase an additional license for each. That means each developer that runs the
solution will require a license, and if you have a Test and Production
environment you will need to purchase a license for each.
Note that this does NOT limit the number of SSRS instances you can monitor -
that is unlimited. See the following FAQ.
How many SSRS Instances can I monitor?
As many as you like. Simply setup additional job steps, or jobs and define the
connection information (server name, Reporting Services database, credentials)
and incorporate in your SCRUBS database.
We have an article on our blog that demonstrates this.
SQL Reporting Services Native Mode or SharePoint Integrated Mode?
And if your SSRS environment includes both scenarios, you can still log them
both to a single SCRUBS datawarehouse. Neat, huh?
I'd like to incorporate SQLScrubs in a solution for my clients or rebrand. Is
that possible? Or can you add some functionality for me?
contact us directly. We love a challenge.
Do you have a free trial?
We offer a Community Edition of SQLScrubs on CodePlex. It has the schema and a
couple of basic reports. You won't be able to report on multiple instances
without rolling your own code. Also, we've patched and enhanced the Premium
Edition only. Bug fixes and support are community based.
Isn't that worth $189 ? Purchase SQLScrubs Premium Edition now!
