Found complete visibility and low overhead in AppDynamics Database Monitoring
“The last thing you want when trying to improve database performance is for your performance monitoring tool to impose a significant overhead, particularly when being implemented on production or highly-stressed load-testing servers,” said Noble. “For this reason, we tested the AppDynamics Database Monitoring tool exhaustively.” To get the precise level of performance detail Betfair required, the AppDynamics monitoring time slice was routinely set to 10 seconds. “Even when capturing information at the finest level of detail, total overhead would still be less than 1% of CPU resource,” Noble noted. “This overhead was well within acceptable limits, and has enabled us to deploy AppDynamics on even our most heavily loaded Oracle servers, which are among the busiest in the world,” added Noble. AppDynamics Database Monitoring is used throughout all stages of application development as well as in production at Betfair, helping everyone to communicate internally about database performance issues.
