Can the user launch Performance Analysis for SQL server on Web client?
Yes, the user can launch Performance Analysis for SQL Server (PASS) on Web client only if Foglight for SQL Server is installed. Without Foglight for SQL Server, the user can only launch PA on thick client (PA GUI client icon from the desktop).
All installation information about Foglight for SQL Server is on this link:
Foglight for SQL Server is web-base, and it also requires FGLAM agent installer to recognize the SQL Server instance. This is total different software than Performance Analysis for SQL Server. Foglight for SQL Server gives the user the option to integrate Stealtcollect (PA agent middleware) to Foglight for SQL Server (FMS). The FMS GUI will look different than the PA GUI client.
There is no actual Performance Analysis for SQL Server that is web-base as standalone.
