Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

We use it across our department to monitor our database landscape. We have different flavors of databases across our landscape, and SolarWinds for years has been an important part of the strategy for our monitoring solutions for the database tier across the landscape. It is very intuitive and quite easy to implement.
  • Immediate bottlenecks on the database tier.
  • Performance tuning.
  • Historical reports.
  • More details around the specific alerts which are raised on the console should be considered.
  • More information from a host layer monitoring could be handy as well.
  • A single layout for the report for all the different instances of DPA would be really handy. It is just tedious to go granular for all the instances across the landscape.
  • Has definitely had a positive impact. It is one stop for all database monitoring for our global teams to identify any potentials issues or bottlenecks.
  • Very intuitive, so do not really have to spend too much time training people to use this tool.
SolarWinds is much more intuitive and really helpful as a starting point for our monitoring purposes.
Even the junior level colleagues can really make sense of the systems which could be facing any potential issues and act accordingly. It also provides some guidance towards what potentially is the problem, which helps to take further actions too. Oracle EM is obviously built with more features and can do much more, but needs a level of expertise and understanding to basically use it across the landscape.
Very intuitive and easy for operations organizations to ensure that any symptoms which could lead to performance concerns on the database tier can be easily identified and looked at.
To ensure these issues can be given highest priority as and when any performance bottlenecks arise, the simple layout provided with the tool is really effective.
