Being able to see the number of executions, memory, and CPU consumed along with blocking allows you to identify and correct poor performing queries efficiently and reduces research time.

Resolve Database Issues
Quickly identify the root cause of database performance issues within a few mouse clicks with a user-friendly interface.

Cross IT Team Collaboration
Eliminate finger pointing and focus on resolving issues faster with Database Admins and VM Admins collaborating together.

Database Summary Dashboard

Database Storage Summary Dashboard

Identify Reccuring Issues In Real-Time

Database Performance Analyzer provides a holistic view of server infrastructure, so you can drill down into problem databases or queries. This helps identify problem queries before they can impact any other clients or the entire server. Daily reports and trend analysis then helps to maintain standards as the load increases.

Report On Performance
Quickly produce reports on database performance problems that are easy for business users to understand.

Performance In Context
Integrate with other SolarWinds modules to see performance in the context of VM, Storage and Application metrics.
