Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

Solarwinds is used by our department to identify performance issues with our system using a Sybase database.
  • Measures wait times of queries performed on our Sybase database
  • Displays the current queries being performed on the database
  • Displays, in a user friendly display, the status of the database
  • Searching for specific users
  • Examining which processor is running which query at the time
  • SolarWinds DPA has been useful to demonstrate to our vendor that their database queries are inefficient.
DPA helped us demonstrate to our vendor that the majority of a wait time for a query was due to a badly formed SQL statement.
Table tuning has helped us demonstrate to our vendor the areas where they can improve the code.
DPA is really good at displaying real time performance issues.
