How To Monitor SQL Performance

SQL Monitoring with AppDynamics for Databases

Do you need deep-dive insight into how to monitor SQL performance? AppDynamics for Databases will give you visibility into how every user, program session, SQL statement and stored procedure is performing – in a live production environment. AppDynamics for Databases is an easy to use, production-ready SQL performance monitor that’s fully integrated with AppDynamics’ Java and .NET application performance management product.

Easy to use

AppDynamics for Databases installs in minutes and requires no configuration or code changes to work. In addition, while most SQL monitoring tools are typically used exclusively by a DBA, anyone can use AppDynamics to troubleshoot slow SQL queries with its intuitive, web-based UI. This means application teams can get the visibility they need into database performance as it affects their applications.


Most SQL monitoring software takes too big of a performance hit to be put into a production environment, but production is where you need monitoring the most. AppDynamics for Databases is designed to monitor high-volume production applications with less than 1% overhead.

Granular data

AppDynamics for Databases offers application teams and DBAs very granular monitoring data, even in a live production environment. This way you can be sure that no important events escape your attention. Furthermore, AppDynamics keeps a complete history of database performance so you can work on resolving past problems, too.

All-in-one view

With AppDynamics, you can monitor everything in a single UI, no matter how complex your application environment may be. Monitor all your database platforms (DB2, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and more) can be monitored in the same instance of AppDynamics. Furthermore, by monitoring your application layer with AppDynamics application performance management solution, you’ll be able to see everything your end users do from the browser to the database all in a single pane of glass.
