Likelihood to Recommend

Foglight

It really depends on why my colleague is evaluating Foglight. If it is for Database monitoring and management, I highly recommend it. If it is for anything else, I would encourage them to look at others in this space.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

Solarwinds Database Performance Analyzer is well suited in below Scenarios - 1. End to End Database Instance Monitoring.2. Database in Clusters Monitoring such as Availability Group in MS SQL, CDB in Oracle etc3. If you want detailed monitoring with historical analysis.4. SQL Statement Deep Dive Analysis for WAIT Time reason, Blockers, Deadlocks etcSolarwinds DPA is not well suited if you are looking for Detailed VM, OS monitoring where Database is installed.

Pros

Foglight

  • Foglight NMS is very light on resources given the amount of monitoring connectivity options it provides. It is one of the few that I've trialed in the past that offers SNMP v3 connections.
  • The dashboard is concise with the main areas of interest. It can be customized as well if you have a particular use case.
  • Setting up alerts is straightforward with the ability to set custom thresholds. Alert emails get sent by configuring a primary mail server with the option to add a backup mail server in the event of a primary mail server outage or connectivity issues.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Top N SQL queries.
  • Outstanding UI for rapid examination and drill down to detail data.
  • Intuitive UI design - better than any other product in its category.
  • Enabled us to immediately shift DB related performance matters first to developers so that our DBA's can focus on more important matters.

Cons

Foglight

  • There are not many problems with this product
  • Limited ability to use Foglight itself to solve problems it identifies

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Resiliency of the Monitoring checks after the server underwent maintenance reboot. My experience is the monitor (Action) needs to be started manually. If possible it can automatically detect service/server then start to monitor again when system is back up.
  • Much lighter UI.
  • Granularity up to minutes.

I don't want to think about managing clusters of SQL servers in the future without this tool. We have demoed other tools and SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer is the gold standard for usability and insight into what your servers are doing. The UI is a bit dated, but everything is laid out in a logical manner and drilling down into queries or timeslices is extremely intuitive.

We have not needed to use support that much, but every time we do they are professional and courteous as well as responding within an expected timeframe.

Idera looks like they are headed to a similar end product. However, their product is not as mature. Solarwinds Database Performance Monitor is an acquisition of an already mature product upon which they added value by integrating it with their extensive software base and their amazing community. I haven't found any other products that do wait based sql analysis.

Return on Investment

Foglight

  • For the past 5 years, we heavily leveraged their application synthetic capabilities which caught several outages to our online presence before our users did or as they did, saving us valuable time and money to get back up and running.
  • Their ability to deep dive into databases has helped the rollout of our new software, speeding up the time to market. We have been able to identify problems with our code in the staging and development tiers, ensuring we release better, more stable software to our customers.

  • DPA allows our DBA to be more agile and find solutions to SQL problems faster. This results in better service to our end users, and better performance on the EHR system to our providers, allowing them to complete chart service for a patient much faster.
