Product Benefits

Diagnose Issues and Optimize Query Performance Faster

  • Easily identify slow-running SQL queries, bottlenecks, error rates, and more with end-to-end application tracing, full latency breakdowns, and stack traces
  • Collect query throughput, query execution performance, connections, buffer pool usage metrics and more
  • Get granular insight into query activity with automatically sampled queries
  • Analyze slow query logs quickly with an intuitive logging platform and auto-pattern recognitions

Improve SQL Server Stored Procedures

  • Reduce network traffic and execution latency by creating stored procedures around frequently repeated database operations
  • Identify and resolve bottlenecks hampering your applications’ response times with insights into your stored procedures and normalized query data
  • Identify the queries and procedures contributing the most to database load and potentially slowing down your applications
  • Monitor Tempdb with DBM and identify long-running transactions that are consuming excessive space

Identify Latch Contention and Deadlocks

  • Discover and resolve bottlenecks and recurring deadlock errors; easily monitor wait times, frequency of latch contention jobs, and more
  • Pinpoint latch contention issues quickly with visibility into the average wait times of latches and the number of latch contentions per second
  • Prevent server load increases and lengthy response times with dashboards that help you identify the number of deadlocks occurring per second in your SQL Server instance

Correlate Query Metrics With Database and Infrastructure Metrics

  • Diagnose root causes faster and see anomalous behavior across all your systems by correlating SQL Server metrics and the rest of your stack
  • View query-level and host-level metrics together to better understand how resource constraints affect database performance
  • Gain critical insights into your system with distributed traces and logs in real time for quick troubleshooting
