Data is the fuel driving business success
Data is the foundation ensuring applications are available, perform well, and meet end users' needs. It helps inform critical business decisions and even offers a proprietary advantage, setting organizations apart from their competition. Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database are common data platforms businesses worldwide choose to meet these challenges, and monitoring SQL database performance is critical.
Licensed software or SaaS solutions
Efficiently pinpoint the root cause of a problem and optimize and tune database performance to prevent future issues.
SQL database diagnosing in Hyper-V and VMware environments
More and more databases are running in virtual environments, which means your monitoring and diagnosis should extend into VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisors.
Operating system monitoring for SQL Server
Moving up the data platform stack is the SQL Server instance itself. There are standard resource metrics organizations should monitor at the hypervisor and operating system (OS) layer, such as CPU, memory, and network.
SQL cloud monitoring
Moving databases or building new ones in the cloud can present performance and design challenges while they run on-premises.
Monitor your entire data platform stack
If you’re only monitoring the SQL Server instance itself, you can have blind spots in your monitoring, potentially leading to SQL Server performance and availability issues.
Easily analyze performance metrics
Analyzing database performance can allow you to separate the anomalies from the cyclical events associated with SQL database operations.
Optimize query performance
To take care of database SQL performance, you need to tune your indexes and queries. A good way to identify problematic SQL queries and indexes is through wait time.
