Database Troubleshooting

Database troubleshooting refers to the practice of diagnosing and resolving database performance issues. It can be time-consuming and challenging as it generally involves gathering and sifting through a great deal of information and data—about the database, the server on which it's hosted, and the applications and services connected to it.

With a unified performance monitoring tool like Dynatrace however, time-strapped developers, DBAs, and operations teams can solve database problems faster and more effectively, thereby improving the performance of their critical business applications. They can isolate and eliminate database hotspots and other possible performance problems quickly and proactively, helping to ensure the stable performance and digital experience of their websites and other applications dependent on their databases.

Accelerating database troubleshooting with a comprehensive monitoring solution

Database troubleshooting typically begins by looking at the symptoms of the problem and then narrowing down places to look for a cause: to the design or configuration of the database, to resource usage on the host server, in database access patterns, or elsewhere. Because there are many components to consider, manual database troubleshooting can be difficult and frustrating. And having a tool that can provide you with all the information you need to quickly analyze and isolate the root cause of database performance issues can save you a great deal of time and frustration in many cases.

A comprehensive database-agnostic enterprise monitoring solution, which incorporates database and server monitoring tools as well as application performance and JVM monitoring tools, can significantly accelerate database troubleshooting. You get quick and easy access to detailed relevant data about the health of your database and host server and about your network and the applications and services accessing your database. Instead of having to pore over various metrics and logs, you can be alerted to an unhealthy component or problematic performance trend and zoom into poorly designed queries to make the appropriate fix fast.
