Database Monitoring

More than half of application performance bottlenecks originate in the database, but most application teams have little or no visibility into database performance. With AppDynamics' database performance management product, you get 100% visibility into application performance, from the browser to the database.

How does database monitoring work?

AppDynamics continuously monitors test or production database instances 24/7 and stores detailed historical data about the resource consumption and wait events in a repository. This data is correlated, aggregated and sorted so that it can be easily displayed in the intuitive web-based user interface.

Key benefits of database monitoring tools

  • Visualize end-to-end application performance, from the browser to the database

  • Get alerts when database thresholds are violated

  • Monitor and improve database performance metrics like top users, programs, SQL, objects and more.

  • See execution plans for slow SQL to isolate performance bottlenecks

Troubleshoot performance issues in a production environment

AppDynamics' fine-grained historical data offers applications teams the ability to retroactively troubleshoot and diagnose the root cause of database-related performance issues – in a live production environment.
