Databases dashboard

Reports ► Applications ► Databases

The Database dashboard offers quick insight into database performance.

If you see a "No database traffic was detected in the monitored stream within selected time range." message when you expected database traffic, try to extend the time range of the report, review your SPAN/NPB configuration, or consider changing the NAM Probe connection point.

In this context, database means the Analyzer group dimension = Database.

All tabs on this report start with Performance overview and Database applications sections to show database status at a glance:

  • Availability
  • Slow queries
  • Query time
  • Database errors
  • Database warnings

Click a tile in the Database applications section to see details for that application or to focus the report on that application.
