  108. 108. References/Examples<br />We are using Database Architechs' Performance and Tuning tools in all our production and test environments. Thanks to these tools we can anticipate and fix any performance issues. Isolating and fixing performance issues is now 16 times faster (down from 2 days to 1 hour). We can also log all the database performance metrics and information to isolate any past performance issue and produce some monthly reports on specific metrics. In addition, Database Architechs Performance and Tuning tools are helping us in identifying users' behavior, anticipating the required tuning to optimize response time.<br />We are using Database Architechs' Performance and Tuning tools for the following: 1) Monitor applications' response time before moving to production. 2) Isolate poor performing SQL queries, stored procedures, triggers ... on production databases. Thanks to Database Architechs' Performance and Tuning tools we've been able to improve SQL queries performances from few minutes to few seconds. Database Architechs' Performance and Tuning tools has also helped us to isolate performance issues during our database migration process.<br />I'm using Database Architechs' Performance and Tuning tools since several years. I appreciate very much these tools for real-time database server monitoring. I appreciate particularly: - The GUI, to visualize and isolate any performance issue in seconds. - How easy and fast it is, to install the tools and start monitoring any database server. - The logging feature, to analyze past performance issues. - The batch mode, to log performance metrics automatically based on events. <br />
