Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

Nasdaq uses SolarWinds DPA for performance troubleshooting and MSSQL Job failure alerts. DPA allows us to quickly identify performance issues both during a crisis and proactively. It's also an easy way to monitor Job failures and other critical conditions across several hundred servers.
  • Clear, Concise Performance Information
  • Server Alerts are quick and easy to setup
  • DPA could allow longer custom names, and reuse of names
  • DPA could allow easier location of all executions of a query matching a certain pattern
  • DPA has allowed Nasdaq to reduce the time needed to troubleshoot performance issues
  • DPA has allowed us to locate issues that were previously unresolved
SolarWinds DPA has helped Nasdaq with issues that are difficult to troubleshoot. It gives a great insight into block, idle blocking, and non-standard wait scenarios.
NA, only recently moved to version 12 due to backend RDBMS incompatibility. SolarWinds Customer Support was very helpful with getting a release for Maria DB backend.
SolarWinds DPA offers much more advanced and efficient troubleshooting than traditional analyzers due to the focus on waits vs system metrics.
DPA is quite helpful when used during a crisis, when you are on the phone, or during a meeting; it provides a quick easy way to get the critical performance information quickly.
