What is database monitoring?

Database monitoring tracks the database performance and resources to create and maintain a high performing and available application infrastructure. To carry out monitoring, the database system collects information from the database manager, its database, and any connected applications. With this data and metrics, teams are provided with all the information they need to identify and solve any databases issues that impact application performance and are then able to set up high-performing databases.
