Adfontes Software provides SolarWinds Database Performance management software to an increasing number of customers using PostgreSQL.

SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer collects, analyze, and visualize the performance data you need to pinpoint PostgreSQL performance issues. DPA measures latency, throughput, errors, warnings, index usage, execution plans, and more for queries executed and provides PostgreSQL lock monitoring. Designed by IT professionals for IT professionals, DPA is built to be intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to drill down from a global view to examine specific problem queries on individual servers with a few clicks. SolarWinds DPA is based on the preferred methodology  DPA_All_Response_Time_Analysis_WP. Wait-based analytics provide root cause analysis to identify what delays inside or outside the database are slowing a query down.

With support for over 10 major database platforms, SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) empowers database administrators (DBA) to pinpoint the root cause of performance problems typically in seconds or minutes. Every query has different response times, which will vary during high volume business hours vs. low volume.







What is the Function of PostgreSQL Database Performance Software?

PostgreSQL Database performance management is a lot more than just processed calculations and records. At the back-end, millions of queries and functions are processing enormous databases. SQL Query performance monitoring is essential if you want to keep enjoying the database systems’ desired functionality. If some query fails, it will sabotage the database and impact the results. If not tracked continuously, you might end up with false results and vague insights. Database testing and monitoring software keep track of the PostgreSQL performance. Scheduled testing and monitoring allow the PostgreSQL DBA experts to take action before serious troubles.



PostgreSQL Database Performance Analyzer by SolarWinds

SQL Queries need monitoring and tuning, so SolarWinds introduced the Database Performance Analyzer tool for businesses. You can use SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor for testing, monitoring, and optimization process of back-end database processing. Database Performance Analyzer not only detects the problems that cause limitations but also mitigates the root causes. With the prioritized actions and detections of bottlenecks, DBM experts can take instant actions to keep up the database systems’ smooth flow. Even if nothing goes wrong, your system still needs to be efficient, and DPA does that very well. A smart system by SolarWinds optimizes the current database systems for significant turnaround






PostgreSQL Database health: real-time, all the time

You need a convenient and efficient way to monitor your PostgreSQL database’s performance on a day-to-day basis, down to the second. SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) makes check-ups simple, with flexible tools and expert guidance—and fills a critical gap in your monitoring stack. 24/7 real-time monitoring can help you attain your KPI goals for availability, deploy frequency, reduced failed deploys, lead time for changes, MTTD, MTTR, etc. Get instant recommendations on where to change server configuration or find queries with potentially bad behavior. Application development, including leading DevOps teams, use DPA proactively to keep PostgreSQL databases healthy and achieve proven results.





Get answers fast, solve problems PostgreSQL faster

SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) helps you get answers fast with a PostgreSQL database performance monitoring platform capable of helping you immediately uncover potential issues that coincided with the outage. Down-to-the-second data collection shows you where to investigate to find the root cause, so your team can make changes and avoid future problems. Application development and DevOps teams use DPM to proactively prevent/minimize outages and achieve proven results.



Improve PostgreSQL database performance and team productivity with real-time visibility

Before releasing code to production, your entire team—developers, QA, DBAs, and DevOps can use SolarWinds® Database Performance Monitor (DPM) to visualize the impact and runtime of upcoming changes. You can use visual performance analysis, deep SQL parsing and heuristics, and execution plan analytics to spot events/trends.



PostgreSQL Database performance monitoring for DevOps

SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) helps application engineers, including DevOps teams, see exactly how new code impacts database workload and query response, even before it’s deployed. With high granularity insight into database workload and query response, DPM database performance monitoring makes it easy to detect issues. And once you have the metrics, you can quickly share insights with your team, accelerating development of improvements.



Deep PostgreSQL database visualization to optimize your system

Proactively tune your system with visibility from SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA). DPA monitors thousands of metrics across your systems at 1-second resolution for full visibility into your database workload. These high-granularity metrics are visualized across an intuitive interface with zoom-in and drill-down capabilities. DPA also provides smart analytics to help you quickly diagnose issues, so you can make code improvements and/or resolve outages faster.

PostgreSQL Databases on VMware?


SolarWinds DPA VM is a specialized tool designed to give DBA teams the visibility into the virtual layer required to successful manage databases in a VMware environment.VMware changed the rules about what server resources were required to keep a database responding predictably, making it much more difficult for DBAs to see the interaction between the database and the underlying server resources. Predictable performance and availability of databases are critical to supporting the entire application stack.
Here are five scenarios unique to the virtual environment that merit particular attention for the manager focused on a successful VMware initiative:

1) Inaccurate metrics – database server metrics on virtual servers are inaccurate
2) Dynamic Resource Allocation – shifting resources impact database performance
3) No Control over Host Resources– other VMs on the host server affect resource allocation
4) Limited DBA Visibility – DBAs typically don’t have access to vCenter
5) Mutual Ignorance – vCenter is not aware of databases, and databases don’t know they’ve been virtualized
