Database Performance Analyzer is really helpful in our organization to find DB issues. It does in-depth database performance monitoring and provides a lot of valuable data to us.
  • Database Performance Analyzer module helped us capture database response times and other info.
  • Database Performance Analyzer is really good at capturing in depth DB data that is not really possible from multiple other modules.
  • Investigating everything is manual in SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer.
  • We will need to manually figure out what the issues are using SolarWinds.
  • Database Performance Analyzer was really helpful to capture a lot of data that was helpful to resolve multiple issues.
  • Some one needs to manually look at each data point captured and analyse the results which is timetaking.
We had an issue where databases were going to a hinge state, and using Database Performance Analyzer we were able to find the jobs that were responsible for that.
We didn't see much help from Database Tuning and Query Advisors.
  • SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor
  • SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager
  • SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor
We are using multiple other tools in SolarWinds which runs and connects well with DPA.
SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer was able to capture database performance data along with VM level data at the same time that helped us look at both the components and figure out the root cause of multiple issues.
We didn't have any databases on Azure of AWS monitored by SolarWinds.
SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer is really good at some scenarios compared to other tools in the market.
Database Performance Analyzer is really helpful for capturing DB procs and other info. However, it was not able to capture the data we needed like the application jobs running on the database, etc.
