A monitor is basically a regular SQL script with some additional information and controls. You create it like any other script but place it in the Monitors folder.
Note that the monitor is not supposed to run scripts with multiple statements, and especially not client-side commands (@). Only statements returning a single result set (i.e. select statements) are supported.

A monitored SQL script is associated with information about the target database connection and (optionally) the catalog (the JDBC term which translates to a database for some databases, like Sybase, MySQL, SQL Server, etc) and schema. It also has a title, a maximum row count (how many results to keep track of) and a visibility status (whether the monitored statement result should be included in the Monitors windows, discussed below). This information is displayed, and can be edited, in the lower part of the Scripts tab, along with information about the file that holds the monitored statement. If you don't want to see these details, you can disable it with the Show Details toggle control in the right-click menu for a node.
