Designed for Operations and Development Teams

AppDynamics for Databases addresses the challenges that application support teams such as Developers and Operations face in trying to identify the cause of application performance issues that relate to database performance.  As many as 50% of application problems are the result of slow SQL calls and stored procedures invoked by applications—yet until now, databases have been a “black box” for application support teams.

AppDynamics Pro for Databases includes the following features:

  • Production Ready: Less than 1% overhead in most production environments.
  • Application to Database drill-down: Ability to troubleshoot business transaction latency from the application right into the database and storage tiers.
  • SQL explain/execution plans: Allows developers and database administrators to pinpoint inefficient operations and logic, as well as diagnose why queries are running slowly.
  • Historical analysis: Monitors and records database activity 24/7 to allow users to analyze performance slowdowns in the database tier.
  • Top database wait states: Provides insights and visibility into database wait and CPU states to help users understand database resource contention and usage.
  • Storage visibility for NetApp: Provides the ability to correlate database performance with performance on NetApp storage.
