Database Performance When Running in a VM: A Primer for DBAs

Date: Wednesday, June 10th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT

A 2020 study by SolarWinds showed 87% of respondents run their database instances in a virtual machine (VM) and almost a quarter were 100% virtualized.

Join us for a look at how SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) provides detailed performance data for database instances running in VMware® ESXi environments. Virtualization provides many benefits, but DBAs may not know if the VM is negatively impacting database performance or where to start when looking at the impact of virtualization on performance.

In this 30-minute webcast, we’ll cover:

  • An overview of SolarWinds end-to-end solutions
  • The vSphere metrics that matter, from CPU to memory ballooning
  • Why you need VM metrics in your database performance monitoring solution
  • How DPA works with VMware vSphere
  • Product demo
