SolarWinds announced the availability of SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) 12.0, a database and query performance monitoring, analysis, and tuning tool built for many of today’s popular databases.

The latest enhancements are designed to help database professionals quickly identify and pinpoint the root cause of slow database queries, and easily optimize database tables to help ensure the speed of business-critical applications that rely on them.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer is designed to deliver deep visibility into the performance of databases in hybrid environments — on-premise, virtualized, and in the cloud. SolarWinds DPA provides actionable insights for database professionals through two brand-new features, Table Tuning Advisor and Query Performance Analyzer.

Query Performance Analyzer can assist users in pinpointing the root cause of slow SQL queries. Detailed query profile data is intelligently displayed in one view, which can reduce the amount of time spent sourcing and correlating information.

The Table Tuning Advisor is designed to proactively provide a solution to one of the most challenging aspects of database management: indexing. SolarWinds DPA Table Tuning Advisor helps identify and validate index opportunities by monitoring workload usage patterns, and then making recommendations to users of where a new index can help optimize inefficiencies.

“Databases are at the crux of application performance and a slow database often results in a slow application,” said Christoph Pfister, EVP of Products, SolarWinds. “Solving application performance issues without deep insight into the database is a challenging endeavor at best. SolarWinds DPA 12.0 can help database professionals tackle performance problems more quickly and accurately with these new features, which are designed to identify exactly where to focus tuning and indexing efforts to optimize the performance of their environments and reduce manual processes.”

SolarWinds DPA is designed to provide seamless integration with SolarWinds network and systems tools, including Network Performance Monitor (NPM) and Server & Application Monitor (SAM). Integration with features like SolarWinds PerfStack dashboard is built to provide additional blocking analysis support, which can help users discover where a blocking incident has occurred and the overall impact of the action, guiding informed future troubleshooting strategies.

SolarWinds DPA can be deployed on Windows or Linux, and monitors physical and virtualized databases located on-premise or in the cloud, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (LUW), SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP ASE), as well as Platform as a Service (PaaS) databases, including Microsoft Azure® DB, Amazon® RDS, and Aurora.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer can be deployed to on-premise and hosted Windows or Linux servers, or easily provisioned to Microsoft Azure from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

A fully functional two-week trial is available.
