SolarWinds DPA Could Transform Your Database Performance Monitoring

SolarWinds DPA, or Database Performance Analyzer, is a powerful tool used by database administrators, IT professionals and developers of applications to assess the performance of databases and allow for analysis of issues arising within Microsoft SQL Server. Its Virtualization Manager offers powerful and comprehensive control over virtual environments in the workplace. If your organisation routinely uses SQL Server and/ or a virtual environment, then SolarWinds supplies sophisticated tools that are not only designed to make issue spotting and troubleshooting easier – they also do this faster than any other such solutions on the market. With affordability, impressive functionality and ease of use, they’re definitely software health tools you cannot afford to be without.

Why SolarWinds Has Dedicated Resources To An SQL Server Health Tool

But why is the SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer so important to consider? Well, SQL is one of the key standardised programming languages used worldwide by IT professionals, including database administrators. It is, in fact, practically the default language for data analysis and is widely considered to be the best for managing and interrogating databases of all sizes from the smallest to the most sophisticated. It is used by industry and academia, individuals and huge corporates alike, and is certified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO). With implementation this widespread, there are a host of software tools available to manage SQL performance. SQL Server, built by Microsoft, is one example. This software is a relational database management system (RDBMS) and assists IT professionals in managing and querying the data they hold. It was estimated in early 2017 that during the previous year, Microsoft’s SQL Server had overtaken the other main database products in popularity to become the fastest growing database management systems software on the market. One key reason behind this trend is that Microsoft has now released a version of SQL Server that is capable of running on Linux, an open-source operating system. This has opened up whole new markets for the product. So with renewed interest in Microsoft SQL Server, and SQL being so essential to database management, it’s crucial to have the right tools to monitor, analyse and fine-tune their performance. This is where SolarWinds DPA comes in. This SolarWinds Network Analyzer facilitates prevention and solution of performance problems in database management. SolarWinds NTA, or NetFlow Traffic Analyzer, and its NTM (Network Topology Mapper) software are two highly useful tools that help keep you informed in different ways about your network.

SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Improves Virtualization Management

Virtual machines (VMs) are becoming not only commonplace but also essential to the industry. In simple terms, they allow the installation of multiple operating systems or applications in separate packets on software within one physical server or machine. So again, reducing it to the simplest level, instead of having a dedicated pc running Windows 10 and another to run Mac OS X, a single computer can run both simultaneously. Scaled up across organisations using a host of operating systems and applications, the advantages are easily recognised. Cost is reduced, as less physical hardware is necessary, reducing both initial outlay and ongoing maintenance expense. Management also becomes easier and less time-consuming from the IT department’s perspective as virtual hardware suffers fewer outages and resources can be shifted and reallocated as and when desirable. Routine tasks in terms of planning for disaster recovery and performing back-ups can also be undertaken more effectively. However, the fullest advantages of using virtualization across organisations can only be recognised if effective oversight by IT professionals is possible. And that’s where the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager comes in. The SolarWinds VM offers complete control over your virtual environment. Not only can you monitor and troubleshoot performance issues across the virtual network in real-time. You are also able to identify existing or future capacity needs; where, for instance, VMs are being under- or over-utilised; and how well your configuration management measures up to the ‘gold standard’.
