Overall Satisfaction with Solarwinds Database Performance Analyzer

AEO uses SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer to maintain a better view of how key databases are performing. These databases are key in our overall business success so having the ability to see trends and be more proactive to possible issues has been key in our success.
  • One use case was to use SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) to look at our overall SolarWinds Database as part of a POC. We were able to make changes in the database to increase the response of our SolarWinds system. It was this POC that made it known that we needed this type of tool.
  • We used DPA to further help identify issues in key business databases to help improve the user experience.
  • It would be nice to bring the detailed views we get when we go out to the SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer server within the SolarWinds UI. This would help move us to the unicorn of a "single pane glass" view.
  • The ROI has come in the form of our DBAs being able to address issues before things go bad. The time they save can be used for better goals.
SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) is great for organizations of all sizes that use databases in key places within their organization. The view inside the database through DPA can help you make improvements if required and be more proactive to issues rather than waiting for the 10 pm call on a Friday that something is broken.
