Government and Education Webinar: Optimizing Database Performance


Published on

In this webinar, our SolarWinds sales engineer discussed how SolarWinds tools can help monitor, analyze, and tune a wide range of database engines, as well as monitor your database infrastructure, including server, VMs, DB application, and dependencies. We reviewed and demonstrated how to find the root cause of database problems, optimize your database, indexes and queries, and detect database anomalies. We also explored monitoring your database infrastructure and leveraging alerts and reports to understand and resolve performance issues before users are impacted.

During this interactive webinar, attendees learned how to:

Monitor cloud and on-premises databases including Aurora®, SQL Server, MySQL®, Oracle®, and more
Leverage wait-time analysis to diagnose performance issues down to the second
Use query and table tuning advisors to proactively optimize your databases
Optimize and support databases you didn’t create
Maintain resource capacity and server health
Discover how other resources affect your database server
Single-pane-of-glass monitoring with seamless integration of all three products via the SolarWinds Orion® Platform

  7. 7. @solarwinds 7 Assessing Database Health and Performance • Health versus performance: What’s the difference? • Database health • Database performance • Diagnosing the root cause: Database performance management best practices • Acquire data and metrics • Establish meaningful data management • Triangulate issues • Review execution plans • Establish a baseline © 2020 SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. All rights reserved.
  8. 8. @solarwinds Database Monitoring Challenges • On-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments? • Visibility, control, and access vary widely • Application infrastructure dependencies (server, VM, storage, database) • Advanced troubleshooting requires a correlation of infrastructure metrics • Getting a view of real-time and historic network and systems metrics gets everyone on the same page • Multi-cloud use is common and on the rise; a unified view is needed • Virtualization is complex, dynamic, and require special tools or skills • Migrating applications to the cloud requires scenario planning and capacity forecasting • Monitoring performance impacts and reporting are critical 8© 2020 SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. All rights reserved.
  9. 9. @solarwinds 9 Start with server health and infrastructure dependencies Improving Database Health • Monitor server capacity and resource usage • Identify which server resources (such as CPU, memory, disk, etc.) have reached capacity • Optimize server and hardware resource investments • Knowing when server resources reach capacity helps you make informed decisions on hardware purchases • Diagnose virtual and storage capacity issues • Monitor virtual and storage resource capacity bottlenecks impacting application health and performance © 2020 SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. All rights reserved.
  10. 10. @solarwinds 10 Database Performance Tuning • Most database performance issues are related to poorly written queries and inefficient indexes • Root cause analysis can be complex and time-consuming • Database abnormalities can be hard to diagnose • Especially when written by others and poorly documented • Response time analysis correlates time spent on query execution with end-user impact • Automated tuning advisors point DBAs toward problems © 2020 SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC.
