Overall Satisfaction with Solarwinds Database Performance Analyzer for SQL Server

We use Solarwinds Database Performance Analyzer to monitor 4 SQL Servers and over 300 databases. DPA allows us to see a holistic view of each server and then drill into problem databases or queries to see specifics. This has allowed us to identify problem queries before they can impact any other clients or the entire server. Daily reports and trend analysis helps us keep up our standards as the load increases.
