Overview:

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option (formerly Confio IgniteVM) is a performance monitoring tool for database administrators running databases on VMware, helping them achieve high performance and reliability.

Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option at a Glance

  • Safe, non-intrusive access for DBAs to see VMware configurations and statistics that directly impact the database.
  • View actual available server resources, not the erroneous data “seen” by the database in the virtual server.
  • Understand database impact of virtual machine between host servers.
  • Monitor impact of of VMware vMotion changes on database performance.

Key Advantages

  • See real statistics. When a database is running on a virtual host, common measures of CPU utilization and availability, memory usage, and I/O capacity are meaningless. Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option captures the real statistics from VMware and exposes them to the DBAs.
  • Monitor rapidly changing resources. On a virtual server, CPU, memory, and I/O performance are subject to instantaneous changes by the VMware administrator, or even dynamic changes by VMware “vMotion.” Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option explicitly shows when changes occur.
  • Understand I/O bottlenecks. Correlate database I/O response time delays with I/O resource constraints at the virtual and physical server to get a true picture of how VMware is affecting database output.
  • Get a clear, simple picture. vCenter is complex and makes it difficult for the DBA to determine what affects the database.

Features:

Essential Database Visibility For VMware Projects
IT needs additional visibility when databases are moved from physical to virtual servers. VMware‰ tools do not cover the database layer, and conventional database tools cannot capture meaningful resource information from virtual servers. DBAs cannot manage what they cannot see. Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option removes the availability and performance uncertainty that comes with shifting critical databases from physical servers to VMware.

Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option is the only monitoring tool that exposes the multiple layers of the database and virtual machine architecture, including database instance, virtual server and physical host server resources. By knowing what changes in the virtual server impact CPU, memory, or I/O, a DBA can ensure reliable operations and service levels.

Multi-layer visibility reveals when changes to the VM or storage layer impact database performance.

Reduce Performance And Availability Risk
When running critical databases on VMware, DBAs and IT managers must ensure effective monitoring across the software layers to prevent situations that might create performance issues. Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option removes risk and enables the DBAs and VMware administrators to cooperate to ensure top database performance on VMware.

Database Performance Analyzer – VM Option helps:

  • Accelerate the cost-savings realized by moving databases to VMware
  • Establish proactive monitoring for VMware hosted databases
  • Avoid costly service interruptions from unseen virtual server-database interaction

Agentless Architecture
Database Performance Analyzer - VM Option uses an agentless architecture with no software installed on monitored databases, virtual servers, or the vCenter server. Requiring read-only access, and without exposing VMware passwords to users, it is the safest way to give DBAs access to necessary virtual server data.

Database Performance Analyzer - VM Option can connect to vCenter or directly to the ESXi hosts to gather VMware statistics. Agentless monitors capture database statistics directly from each instance.
