Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

It is being used mostly by the development team as a self service gateway to view the database transactions that they don't have physical access to. This allows the database team to not have to take time out of their day to perform query analysis, etc..
  • It allows us to have a gateway to the databases that the users would not normally have access to.
  • It allows the database admins to not have to provide analysis as users can do their own through the interface.
  • It's a quick place to do an initial view into performance issues for DBA.
  • Would be nice to have more granular permissions.
  • The only negative impact so far has been on the security front. We spent the last few days trying to tighten restrictions and access.
  • It's very costly per number of databases. I would change the pricing model or offer a site license at a discount.
It's well suited as a self help tool. It really saves time on our team so we don't have to provide guidance on issues or questions.
