SolarWinds, a provider of IT management software, is introducing machine learning-enabled database anomaly detection and an automated management API in the latest version of Database Performance Analyzer (DPA).
DPA provides database management software built for SQL query performance monitoring, analysis, and tuning with multi-vendor relational database support, including Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server, DB2, SAP ASE, and cloud.
The company is also refreshing its IT operations management portfolio, collectively designed to improve support for monitoring critical IT services and extend support for monitoring private cloud and converged infrastructures.
“A slow-running database can significantly affect the end-to-end performance of applications and the experience of end users,” said Joe Kim, executive vice president and global chief technology officer, SolarWinds. “With new anomaly detection capabilities, SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer 12.1 empowers database professionals to more accurately identify and respond to performance incidents. We take pride in providing tools designed to allow customers to keep their businesses running smoothly while shifting to a more proactive management approach.”
With DPA 12.1, customers can save time by not only automating anomaly detection to more quickly find, visualize, and alert when database wait times deviate from the expected, but by also leveraging machine learning capabilities to monitor behavior patterns and gain meaningful insight into what is expected versus an anomaly.
Database professionals can also benefit from the addition of the DPA management API, which allows customers to automate instance management (such as registration, licensing, annotations, and more) as well as programmatically scale to meet the needs of large or dynamic environments.
SolarWinds DPA is designed to integrate with the SolarWinds Orion Platform, and its many modules, including Network Performance Monitor (NPM) and Server & Application Monitor (SAM). Integration with features like the SolarWinds PerfStack dashboard can provide additional blocking analysis support, designed to help users discover where an incident occurred, the overall impact of the action, and guide informed future troubleshooting strategies.
Within its IT operations management portfolio, SolarWinds announced updates to the following software products:
- Server & Application Monitor (SAM) 6.8
- Virtualization Manager (VMAN) 8.4
- Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) 6.8
- Server Configuration Monitor (SCM) 1.1
- Log Analyzer (LA) 2.0
