Project Lucy – A new project from Quest

As we know Quest is a premium company offering many tools and technologies on various database products, it is always wise to follow them closely. Project Lucy is a new project from Quest which can be used for in-depth automated analysis of your trace files.

As per Quest, Project Lucy analyzes performance data that you upload. It gives you deep analysis and leverages the collective intelligence of other Project Lucy users.

As of now it uses trace files for workload related insight and general breakdown,
plan cache behavior, recompiles, file autogrow/shrink behavior for analysis. However it will
process SQL Server query plans, Windows perfmon data, data from SQL Server DMVs, perhaps even data from other database platforms for deeper analysis in future.
