Hello,
We are using sql server 2008.
is there a monitoring tool we can use to check the health of the sql server? i.e. tables, keys, stored procs, etc...
I have heard about redgate software for this purpose.. what do you think please?

We use Redgate Monitor to monitor our critical servers. We can quickly see if any of the servers have performance issues with things like CPU. It also identifies certain alerts that you can configure.

I'm not sure what you mean by monitoring tables and keys?

I also would like to check if the tables are designed correctly i.e. indexed properly, etc.

That is soemthing you'd have to check yourself. Hopefully before it goes into production!
