Today’s database professionals are challenged by growing volumes of data, complex database environments with multiple platforms, and the steady migration of databases to the cloud. DBAs spend much of their day reacting to problems – slow performance, downtime, blocked queries and other issues that affect the user experience and potentially harm the business. Their focus is on fixing the problem, not finding out what caused it and preventing it from happening again. This has to stop.
The underlying problem is the lack of visibility into the health and performance of the database environment. Foglight® database monitoring and diagnostic solutions provide a single view into complex environments and allow DBAs to quickly pinpoint performance issues before they spiral out of control.
Foglight supports connections to multiple SQL-based databases, such as SQL Server and Oracle, along with open source database environments like MongoDB, Cassandra, PostgreSQL and MySQL. Notifications can be customized across a variety of performance indicators. When issues are detected, detailed drill-downs make it possible to quickly isolate a poorly-performing query or process – right down to the offending line of code.
The diagnostic and alerting capabilities of Foglight make it possible to take control of database health and proactively address performance issues before they cause damaging downtime.
