SolarWinds has announced it has added support for MySQL® databases to SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) 10.0. With the addition of MySQL, SolarWinds DPA now supports the top three database platforms — Microsoft® SQL Server®, Oracle® and MySQL— plus more, thereby providing database administrators (DBAs), application developers and operations teams with enterprise-grade database performance tuning, metric visibility and resource correlation based on a unique wait-time-analytics and resource correlation approach to help improve the performance of corporate, cloud and SaaS applications based on any of these databases from within a single management dashboard.

Recent SolarWinds survey* data indicates many organizations use multiple database platforms in production for mission critical workloads — with SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL, respectively, being the most common. With SolarWinds DPA for MySQL, organizations can more broadly implement MySQL alongside other database platforms while maintaining the peace of mind that comes with having mission critical applications and workloads operate at peak performance without database-related bottlenecks.


What Will IT Solve Next with SolarWinds DPA for MySQL?

With SolarWinds DPA for MySQL, DBAs can now:

  • Monitor and optimize MySQL instances based on MySQL Community Edition 5.6, Percona Server® 5.6, MariaDB® and Aurora as well as instances based on Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle Standard Edition, Oracle Enterprise Edition, IBM® DB2® and SAP® ASE operations.
  • Use wait time analytics and Multi-Dimensional Performance Analysis, including dynamic baselining, alerting and custom reports to help pinpoint the root cause of database performance issues and anomalies quickly and easily. Then, get expert advice on how to solve the problems identified within the product.
  • Safely use SolarWinds DPA’s agentless architecture in MySQL development, test, staging, and production environments, providing information of where the bottlenecks are and enhancing collaboration.
  • Harness the power of SolarWinds DPA’s integration with SolarWinds Orion® technology backbone, allowing teams to see database performance in the context of specific applications with detailed information about Web performance, server health, virtualization and storage resources, when used with other key products in SolarWinds’ portfolio, including SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager and SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor.
