What if there was a way to see a graphical timeline of your SQL Server Agent jobs?

There is!

It’s called SQLjobvis (short for SQL Job Visualizer), and it’s FREE!

Cool Features

This lightweight app color-codes jobs based on their outcome (green for success, red for failure, blue for currently executing). You can filter jobs by state (enabled or disabled), category, and whether they’re running long or overlapping. Additionally, the app makes it easy to find gaps when no jobs are running, giving you the best times and days to add or reschedule jobs, or to perform maintenance.

This is a tiny but powerful tool that has many other features I didn’t discuss, so give it a try and see if it’s right for you.
