Slow database performance is at the heart of most application issues. Identify whether it is slow queries, improper configuration, or the need for index tuning.
According to a recent Explore Group survey, Microsoft SQL server is one of the top database servers in use today. Services in most industries - healthcare, manufacturing, finance and more - rely on SQL database servers for data storage and access. Any performance degradation or unavailability of these servers can severely impact the performance of the entire service, often causing customer dissatisfaction and lost revenue. To prevent such situations, database administrators are tasked with making sure that their database servers are tuned well and responding as fast as possible to application requests. Performance monitoring can help database administrators:
eG Enterprise has been incredibly useful and has far exceeded our expectations. Metrics relating to SQL and missing indexes have provided critical information that we had long suspected were performance issues. Now
we have the information to address specific performance challenges.
Track the key parameters that can affect database server performance:
With its ability to automatically determine baselines for every metric collected in the IT infrastructure, the eG Microsoft SQL monitor provides proactive alerts to administrators. In-depth snapshots of the Microsoft SQL server's usage are also provided periodically to assist with real-time and post-mortem diagnosis. Hourly, daily, and monthly trends are automatically computed, so administrators can effectively plan the utilization and capacity of their Microsoft SQL infrastructure.
eG Enterprise application performance monitoring allows database performance to be monitored in the context of the applications using the database server.
This eliminates finger-pointing between application development, application operations and database admin teams.
