Database Performance Monitoring

Database Availability

Enterprise application performance, is majorly dependent on database performance hence, it is vital for companies to afford a constant and reliable way to access and monitor database performance in relation with dependent applications. This in turn makes it important for system administrators to know the status of their databases. An efficient database can provide the following benefits to an enterprise:

  • Maximum immunity from undetected database failures.
  • Provide a real-time visibility into multi-vendor database environment with all vital parameters required to ensure higher service availability.

Before you initiate database monitoring, you should first ask the below questions to yourself

  • Are my clients configured properly to work with the data servers?
  • Is my database application restricted by the resource of my clients?
  • Do my client applications have insufficiencies in their code?
  • Which clients, users, applications, or Structured Query Language (SQL) statements use the most resources?
  • Is my network capacity sufficient?
  • Which application consumes most of my network?

Database Monitoring Capabilities of ManageEngine IT360

ManageEngine IT360 provides complete monitoring of database servers and databases - including availability, database and table sizes, cache ratios, and other key metrics. It allows database monitoring and automated alerts for the most common types of database servers. It uses an agentless monitoring technology to execute database queries and collects performance statistics to send alarms, if the database performance crosses the set threshold. With out-of-the box reports, DBAs can plan inventory requirements and troubleshoot incidents quickly.

To summarize, IT360 does the following with respect to database monitoring:

  • Monitors a heterogeneous database server environment that may consist of Oracle database, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Sybase, IBM DB2, PostgreSQL and Memcached databases.
  • Out-of-the box reports, DBAs can plan inventory requirements and troubleshoot incidents quickly.
  • Keep tab on the database size, buffer cache size, database connection time.

Database Types Supported by IT360

IT360 provides out-of-the-box support monitoring for the following databases:

1. Oracle Management:

The Oracle database management capability helps database administrators to seamlessly detect, diagnose and resolve Oracle performance issues and monitor Oracle 24X7. The database server monitoring tool is an agentless monitoring software that provides out-of-the-box performance metrics and helps you visualize the health and availability of an Oracle Database server farm. Database administrators can login to the web client and visualize the status and Oracle performance metrics.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Response Time
  • User Activity
  • Status
  • Table Space Usage
  • Table Space Details
  • Table Space Status
  • SGA Performance
  • SGA Details
  • SGA Status
  • Performance of Data Files
  • Session Details
  • Session Waits
  • Buffer Gets
  • Disk Reads
  • Rollback Segment
  • Queries, Locks and more

2. MySQL Management:

IT360`s MySQL Server monitoring capability helps database administrators monitor the performance and availability of a MySQL database farm. It is an agentless monitoring solution that provides out-of-the-box performance metrics for ensuring the MySQL database server runs efficiently.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Connection Time
  • Request Statistics
  • Connection Statistics
  • Thread Details
  • Table Lock Statistics
  • Key efficiency
  • Query Hit Ratio
  • Query Cache Hit-rate
  • Replication Details, etc.

3. Sybase Management:

IT360`s Sybase monitoring feature monitors the availability and performance of Sybase ASE database servers. IT360 connects to the database source, monitors various metrics and also notifies through alarms, if the performance metrics are beyond a given threshold.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Connection Statistics
  • Memory Usage
  • DB Information
  • Current Statistics
  • Current Process
  • CPU, memory, disk utilization, etc.

4. MS SQL Management:

The SQL Server Monitoring software capability of IT360 helps database administrators monitor the performance and availability of production databases. It is an agentless monitoring solution that provides out-of-the-box performance metrics for ensuring the SQL Server runs efficiently.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Memory Usage
  • Buffer Manager Statistics
  • Connection Statistics
  • Cache Details
  • Lock Details
  • SQL Statistics
  • Latch Details
  • Access Method Details
  • Database Details
  • Scheduled Jobs

5. IBM DB2 Management

IT360's DB2 Server Monitoring capability helps database administrators (DBAs) monitor the availability and performance of production databases. It is an agentless database monitoring software that provides out-of-the-box performance metrics for ensuring the IBM DB2 database server runs efficiently.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Connection Statistics
  • Agents Statistics
  • DB Information
  • Transaction Statistics
  • Cache Performance
  • Buffer Statistics
  • TableSpace Status

6. PostgreSQL Management:

PostgreSQL is one of the most widely used object relational database management systems (ORDBMS) in the world today. Since database servers such as PostgreSQL are at the core of many business-critical services, any failure or performance degradation of PostgreSQL can impact multiple services that depend on it.

ManageEngine IT360 offers comprehensive PostgreSQL monitoring capabilities that enable database administrators (DBA's) proactively monitor the availability and performance of business-critical PostgreSQL database servers. The monitoring is done continuously, on a 24x7 basis, and it ensures that any deviation in the normal functioning of PostgreSQL database is brought to the DBA's notice immediately.

Monitored Parameters:

  • CPU, memory and disk utilization
  • Buffer statistics
  • Connection statistics
  • Disk usage details
  • Index scan details
  • Query statistics
  • Lock statistics
  • Table level scan details
  • Transaction details

7. Memcached Management:

Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system intended to speed up dynamic web applications. It provides an ideal platform for accelerating the performance of web applications in the cloud. ManageEngine IT360 provides a comprehensive solution to proactively monitor the health and performance of business-critical Memcached servers. This allows IT administrators to identify and resolve problems with caching systems before they can have an adverse impact on the business.

Monitored Parameters:

  • Availability, Health & Cache Hit Ratio: Gives an overall representation of the current availability, health and cache hit ratio of the memcached server.
  • CPU, Memory Utilization, and Request Metrics: Allows you to check if CPUs are running at full capacity or if they are being under-utilized. Keeps track of metrics such as user CPU, System CPU, cached hits/min, cached misses/min, number of retrieval and storage requests per minute, etc.
  • Network Traffic, Connections, Transaction, and Cached Items: Monitor the network traffic with metrics such as Bytes received / sent per minute. Other performance metrics include transaction details, response time, number of open connections, items cached and evictions

Benefits of End-to-end Database Monitoring:

Implementing effective database monitoring with IT360 offers the following benefits:

  • Increased application availability
  • Increased database performance
  • Fast detection of database outages, failures, and table corruption
  • Predictive analysis of storage requirements and index performance
  • Ability to detect and resolve performance problems, not only in the data servers but in the entire database application system.
  • Allow you to tell which part in the database application system causes the performance problem: client, application server, network, or data server.
  • Detects bottlenecks that you could hardly identify before.
