Microsoft SQL Monitoring with SolarWinds SAM and DPA - the Dynamic Duo

SolarWinds sponsored on-demand webinar

Webcast Abstract

SolarWinds customers and prospects have asked (be it at trade shows, phone calls, demos, etc.) what the difference is between SolarWinds products Server & Application Monitor (SAM) and Database Performance Analyzer (DPA). They also ask if they can co-exist with one another. To say SAM and DPA co-exist is like saying Batman and Robin co-exist; it doesn’t do them justice. Although both products monitor SQL Server, their purposes and personas are unique and different. Each has its benefits in serving various database support roles. Still, you’re monitoring two sides of the same coins, very valuable coins—your applications—and together you can provide comprehensive database monitoring regardless of your role.

During this webcast, we’ll take you through multiple compelling use cases showing the power of using both SAM and DPA, the differences when it comes to database monitoring, and how they leverage their integration with the Orion Platform, including:

  • Troubleshooting – The application is running slow. Isolating what element of the infrastructure is causing the slowdown. What role is the database playing in performance?
  • Understanding relationships – Insights into application and database dependencies.
  • Capacity planning/optimization – Growth of data and transaction load.
  • Monitoring during development – Building, testing, and releasing code or software updates.
