When you only have a few SQL Server Agent jobs, it’s easy to keep track of and make sense of them. I’m using a graphical free tool called SQLjobvis (screen capture below), available at http://www.sqlsoft.co.uk/sqljobvis.php. It provides a visual view of completed SQL Server Agent job steps. See the screen capture below.
Wouldn’t it be great if Microsoft offered a graphical UI for SQL Server Agent? I’d like Microsoft to provide viewing and graphical editing of SQL Agent job schedules. Please vote on this Connect item:
