Free Software for Database Performance MonitoringSolarWinds Database Monitor

The Only Free Response-Time Performance Monitor

SolarWinds Database Monitor (formerly Confio IgniteFree) reveals performance bottlenecks where no other tools can find them - deep inside your Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 or Sybase instance. No other free database monitoring tool provides response-time based analysis to help DBAs and developers improve database performance.

  • > No limit on seats or users
  • > Up to 20 monitored instances
  • > No agent and less than 1% load on monitored servers

Important: Database Monitor (DBM) can be upgraded to the full-feature SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) with the appropriate license. DBM is not intended to be used in conjuction with DPA. DBM is not included in any paid maintenance or product support program regardless of other SolarWinds products purchased.

Monitor the database on VMware®

Traditional database monitoring tools cannot see the VMware server and storage layers. Only Database Monitor pinpoints the root cause of database performance issues in the query, virtual server, or physical host. Database Monitor lets DBAs see the server and VMware admins see how the database interacts with VMware. Learn more about the benefits of Database Monitor.

Agentless Architecture

SolarWinds Database Monitor is ideal for database performance monitoring and management on SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, and DB2. No installation of any software on the production systems. Database Monitor requires no installation of any software on the production systems and its web-based interface lets users access the tool from their browser. Database Monitor is installed on any Windows, UNIX, or Linux server capable of running Java. Database Monitor's agentless probes reach across the network to the monitored databases and pull performance statistics back to the repository for analysis and reporting.

Monitor Database Performance on VMware

DBAs can't manage what they can't see. Database Monitor is the only free VMware performance monitoring tool linking visibility of the database, virtual server, physical server, and storage layers.

Database Monitor removes the availability and performance uncertainty that comes with shifting critical databases from physical servers to VMware.

Taking only minutes to install, Database Monitor connects to vCenter or ESX/ESXi and the monitored database instances (Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, and DB2) using read-only credentials.

By seeing changes on the physical host server that impact CPU, memory, or I/O available to a database, a DBA can ensure reliable operations and service levels when virtualizing the database.
