SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Orion

The integration of the two platforms allows for a more holistic view of system performance, application dependencies and correlation of impact on queries or processes which might be impacting server performance such as processor or memory. From an integration perspective, the ability to call one application from the other makes it a more seamless user experience.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Orion

Sadly, our environment was implemented in two different times and they used different Orion so we are not actually able to link all the scenarios.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Orion

Integrating Solarwinds products together help in getting an overall view of what was going on with all linked elements in our environment, at exactly the time the problem was occurring. The more data you have about what other problems were happening at the same time, the faster it is to resolve the problem.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Orion

There is so much within Orion that it's hard to know where to begin. You can quickly go from a high-level network map to an individual database and single query within Orion when it's integrated with DPA. Easy to view bar charts within DPA are similarly displayed within Orion for wait times, along with how each query affects different resources on the system.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer Orion

Being honest, I'm not sure if we use the Orion platform in our organization. Since I'm the manager I'm not completely involved in the processes and different tools used to have SolarWinds NDM and DPA working properly. I would like to have some more expertise to make a valid comment on this platform.
