Virtualization Impacts on Database Performance: Who Moved My Cheese?

Date: Tuesday, August 11th at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT

A study conducted by SolarWinds in 2020 showed the vast majority of respondents (87%) run their database instances in a virtual machine (VM) and almost a quarter were 100% virtualized. Yet, most tools don’t provide correlation between changes in virtual environments and how those can impact database performance.

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

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
