Database Monitoring and Acceleration

Gain deep insights into your database performance for optimal performance.

The most common cause of application slowdowns today are slow SQL or stored procedures in the database. Since 1997, we have successfully helped hundreds of customers optimise the performance of their business critical databases.

We recommend you monitor your database and the SQL queries which execute against it using an ‘always-on’ collector agent. This provides an historical trend of SQL performance over time and allows you to drill down into slow periods no matter when they occur. We advocate using a wait-time-based approach to measurement, which lets you see which queries are taking the longest and which resources they are consuming (CPU, I/O, locks etc). If you have a database in need of extra performance or scalability, we have multiple ways to help.

Monitoring

Single Pane of Glass

Different database types don’t need different database monitoring tools. See everything in a single pane-of-glass. Supporting DB2, Oracle, Postgres, MySQL, and SQL Server, all from one single installation and UI.

Trending Over Time

You need more than just the real time performance and usage of your databases. We can help you keep a full history of all database performance metrics and SQL execution activity so you can see how things are trending and when things change from normal behaviour.

Production Safe Monitoring

With less than 1% overhead you can monitor your high-volume production databases 24/7. This means you have complete visibility into database performance whenever problems may occur.

Alerting for problems

Get alerted when thing deviate from normal or pass a defined threshold. This gives you early warning of impending problems so that you can react before it affects your end users.

Identify Root Cause

See exactly where time in the database is being spent and the top SQL and Stored Procedures. Drill down to their execution plans to isolate performance bottlenecks and the remedy, whether it is DB config, schema changes or SQL code.

Scalabilty

Zero Downtime Maintenance

Optimize traffic flows and reduce application error messages during planned downtime, such as patching database servers, applying software/security updates or making schema changes.

App-Transparent Scalability

The right approach enables databases to scale up instantly and scale out transparently – with no changes to your apps or databases. Software fits transparently between your apps and your databases, routing database traffic and managing connections to databases with no app changes.
