Third Party Tools
I am not paid to recommend any tools at this time, I genuinely like these things.
- SQL Sentry Plan Explorer get the paid version to easily keep history.
- Solarwinds DPA not free, but pretty good, dont forget to try out SQL Sentry Monitoring if you are in the market for such a thing.
- Schemazen a great tool for easily scripting out and creating databases.
- SQLDBDoc kind of old but still works fine, working on my own version in powershell at the moment.
