Designed for Operations and Development Teams

Tackle challenges that various application support teams (like such as Developers and Operations) face by detecting the cause of application performance issues. Slow SQL calls and stored procedures invoked by applications are often the cause of a large number of application problems (almost 50%). However, databases have been a "black box" for application support teams.

Features of AppDynamics Pro for Databases are:

  • Production Ready: 1% overhead or fewer overheads in most production environments.

  • Application to Database drill-down: Successfully troubleshoot business transaction latency from the application into the database tiers and storage.

  • SQL explain/execution plans: Developers and database administrators to detect inefficient operations and diagnose the reason for slow running queries.

  • Historical analysis: Record database activities to allow users to detect and analyze performance slowdowns in the database tier.

  • Top database wait states: Offers visibility into database wait and CPU states and enables users to understand database resource usage and contention.

  • Storage visibility for NetApp: Offers the ability to correlate database performance with performance on NetApp storage.
