Winners' Circle: SolarWinds

Winners' Circle by Craig McDonald, VP of Product

With support for over 10 major database platforms, SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) empowers database administrators (DBAs) to pinpoint the root cause of performance problems typically in seconds or minutes. Every query has different response times, which will vary during high-volume business hours vs. low-volume times. Anomaly detection powered by machine learning separates DPA from legacy performance monitoring products by allowing DBAs to identify abnormal query performance on Monday at 9 a.m. vs. 2 a.m. In addition to query and index tuning, DPA’s wait-based analytics zeros in on why a query is slow, such as from VM delays of resource consumption for CPU or storage. With down-to-the-second monitoring, DPA transforms tuning from reactive to proactive by identifying the best optimization opportunities based on actual workload.

DPA has database and monitoring and optimization support for:
