What is AppDynamics Database Monitoring?

More than half of application performance bottlenecks originate in the database, but most application teams have little or no visibility into database performance. With AppDynamics' database performance management product, you get 100% visibility into application performance, from the browser to the database.

Key Benefits

  • Visualize end-to-end application performance, from the browser to the database

  • Monitor key performance metrics like top users, programs, SQL, objects and more.
  • See execution plans for slow SQL to isolate performance bottlenecks

The best feature is the live view. You can see exactly what's going on.

What other advice do I have?

Just implement it. I've never seen anything like this, so I would tell everyone, “You should try this.” One thing that everyone needs to understand: If APM is for their application or not. That's the most important part.

If colleagues looking to implement database monitoring asked me for advice, I would definitely advise them to look at this APM tool, first of all. Then, basically just work with the engineers initially and get self-sufficient with the tool. And spend some time with the tool. If it's a training issue, get some training on the tool itself. As long as they know their space, they know their infrastructure, they know their database ecosystem, it should be pretty easy. We use the AppDynamics database monitoring plus the APM on the app side right now.
