  • Intuitive performance analysis

    Easy drill in, context setting, and consistent navigation

    Understand your SQL Server performance picture at a glance and across key dimensions: Queries, Waits, Applications, Client Machines, Users, and more.

  • Blocking and deadlock analysis

    See what’s being blocked AND what’s doing the blocking—plus, detailed deadlock analysis

    Know your SQL Server blocking hierarchy, as well as the overall impact to your database performance caused by blocking; in addition, see detailed deadlock resolution reports.

  • Workload and index advisors/recommendations

    Identify your best index, query, and table tuning opportunities

    Identify high-impact, inefficient T-SQL—aggregated by tables—to find indexing opportunities. The SQL performance analyzer in DPA can provide an “X marks the spot” performance analysis of actual workload.

  • Query performance analysis

    T-SQL tuning advisors can provide clear and actionable advice

    T-SQL and plan analysis, as well as correlating query wait time with statistics, resource metrics, blocking data, and more. Tuning advisors can point to MSSQL server problems that need immediate focus.

  • Real-time and historic monitoring

    Execute root cause analysis right now or time travel with historic data

    24/7 monitoring of SQL servers can help answer why performance is or was bad, plus get a handle on where performance is headed or how your system is trending.

  • Collaboration across teams

    Developers, DBAs, and operations teams can finally get on the same page—DPA can help everyone understand performance

    Web interface and read-only rights help make DPA safe to use across teams. SQL developers can see the impact of new code in production, and operations can see the impact of any changes.

  • Availability Group Monitoring

    Get AG status, health, and alerts for failovers or health status changes

    Get helpful insights into the status and health of your Always On Availability Group environment in MSSQL, as well as get alerted when things change.

  • Alerts and reports

    Alert when problems occur and generate reports to help share the performance story
