What is Microsoft SQL Server?

Microsoft SQL Server is an RDBMS developed by Microsoft. Various editions serve different audiences and workloads, ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications with numerous concurrent users.

Dynatrace monitors SQL Server databases across all platforms and analyzes the activity of your database services, providing visibility down to individual MSSQL commands.

Easily optimize Microsoft SQL Server performance

When it comes to analyzing the behavior of MSSQL databases, baselining is the approach of choice. By comparing current performance to historical metrics, Dynatrace recognizes when performance is under par. This approach provides you with continuous insights and detailed root-cause analysis when problems occur.

Dynatrace categorizes all activities running on your MSSQL instances, providing you with full insight into how your databases are really used. Dynatrace database-service views provide all the metrics you need to set up high-performance database services.

Dynatrace shows response times, failure rates, and database-activity breakdowns of MSSQL databases.

Analyze MSSQL performance metrics of each statement

Dynatrace monitors MSSQL metrics from your application’s perspective. Because identifying individual non-performing database statements can be time-consuming, Dynatrace automatically identifies expensive database statements (e.g., those that read a lot of data). This approach is ideal for all MSSQL database solutions. A complete list of database statements that includes key metrics like response times and numbers of rows is the most valuable information any DevOps team could ask for when optimizing MSSQL performance.

Deep database analytics for Microsoft SQL Server

For SQL Server, you can dig into your databases even deeper.

  • Identify database issues out-of-the-box with the database health dashboard: Is there a problem with the database instance? Is something else running on the host? Do you need to optimize your stored procedures? The database health dashboard provides answers to these questions and more.
  • See who else is using your database instance and understand how that usage affects application performance.
Find out which operations are taking the most time and see CPU metric without a local agent installed.
Find out who and what is using the database in real-time.
