What are my options to find heavily accessed DBs on a server? I know I can do this by profiler and some counters. Is there any tool which gives me this information easily?

I need to find the heavily accessed DBs across several servers. I was just wondering, - is there a simple way to achieve this?

My concern is – if I use profiler I need to configure it for around 50 servers. That is a tedious job.

Take look at perfmon counter sqlserver:databases\active transactions and transaction/sec for each db on each server.
