Integrates with many databases, clean GUI, and provides valuable real-time graphs

What is our primary use case?

I use DbVisualizer to run complex queries in many databases, including about every vendor with a relational database. Timed SQL execution and real-time graphs are the killer features. It is a multiple-platform tool, based on Java but with a native look and feel. Most colleagues initially don't believe it is entirely written in Java. For Oracle, I use it to analyze AWR data. During database restores, I use this to monitor the progression and to estimate the remaining time. The limits to its use are by imagination only.

Pros and Cons

  • "Timed queries that add their result to the result grid for every execution are helpful."
  • "Sometimes, I feel that the startup time takes a bit more time than needed."

What other advice do I have?

Suggesting new features keeps getting harder and harder since they already added an awful lot. The support is quick and they add new features or fix bugs, most of the time in the next release.

Good for monitoring specific processes, built-in SSH tunneling support, easy-to-create graphs, and a clean GUI

What is our primary use case?

I use this mostly for browsing databases and for certain specific monitoring processes. Like monitoring a database restore/recovery where the time SQL executions and real-time graphs are a great help estimating the time left.

Pros and Cons

  • "Actions like exporting grids to Excel or other tools is a very easy task."
  • "One thing I would like to see changed is having the JDBC drivers in a fixed location outside of the application package."

What other advice do I have?

Coming up with ideas for new features is something that gets harder with every release. The developers of DbVisualizer listen carefully to their users and add features on request. It is also quite easy to add custom features using local profiles. Also, for support, they make it easy to share logs and traces with their development team. All of these are automatically generated and it means that we don't have to dig for all kinds of files. This is a great solution. My advice for anybody using this solution is that it helps when everyone sharing bookmarks uses the same encoding. Otherwise, thereā€¦
