Database performance analyzer is capable of monitoring on-premises, on VMware and in the cloud that is including Amazon AWS and Azure virtual machines. It also has an agentless architecture and safe to use in production. Some of the major key features include the following:
Historical trends and resource correlation. Database performance analyzer’s historical repository highlights the trends and anomalies that are easy candidates for SQL tuning.
Alerts, reports and baselines. Comprehensive alerting and reporting without overloading your inbox. Baselines highlight outliers
Drill down and time slice to the second. Because the dashboards are easily understood, drilling down is able to provide a detailed analytics for top databases.
Agentless architecture. Database performance analyzer’s agentless architecture provides consistent 24/7 monitoring with less than 1% load.
Expert advice. Databases are able to view SQL performance tuning advice for the instance. Advice for developers can focus on a specific SQL query.

Reasons to use Database Performance Analyzer for SQL Server
Identify performance issues that impact application response time the most. Response Time Analysis enables you make changes that end-users will be able to notice when their applications run faster.
Eliminates Finger-Pointing Across the IT Team. SolarWinds’ SQL performance monitoring software is able to build collaborations among databases, developers, question and answer and Server Administrators.
Eliminates database bottlenecks on AWS and Azure. By using DPA you are able to get unparalleled visibility to performance on Amazon Cloud. Database Performance Analyzer’s Multi-Dimensional Performance Analysis identifies historical performance trends and provides you actionable advice on the inner workings of database instances deployed on an Amazon AWS RDS and EC2 virtual machine.
Monitors all your Databases-on premise, in the cloud or a service. One should not be forced into the usage of different tools to monitor your database instead use DPA. It’s the only tool that is able to provide full coverage of your databases, no matter how it is deployed; physical, virtual, cloud or DBaaS, they got all this covered.
SQL Server Performance Tuning. Most of the time database performance issues result from poorly written SQL queries, bad design or index strategies. Unlike hardware upgrades, SQL query tuning can offer immediate and very powerful results. However, effective SQL tuning requires not only knowing the top SQL statement but also the top wait types, SQL plans, the effect of missing indexes, blocked queries and resource contention. DPA isolates the root cause, provides the much needed SQL tuning advice and is a must for performance tuning in SQL.
Scale from one to thousands of Monitored Instances. Database performance analyzer central provides a consolidation of performance metrics from thousands of monitored instances.
Improve Performance without Additional Server Resources. It is always a big gamble when investing in hardware to resolve application performance problems unless you are certain the performance bottleneck is in fact caused by server resources. Database Performance Analyzer is able to pinpoint the root cause of problems and allows you to validate your hardware purchases.
