The check engine light in your car tells you to bring it to a specialist to analyze the data, determine the root cause and take corrective action. But without the correct tools and technology, it can be difficult for a mechanic to figure out what is really going on under the hood.
Like a mechanic’s diagnostic tools, IT operations monitoring software (like SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor) can monitor your IT infrastructure and alert you problems. However, when the data indicates a database performance issue, it’s best to bring in a specialist with the right tools (like SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer) to determine if the database is truly the root cause. More important, though, is preventing problems in the first place. Database administrators and system managers need to work together to prevent issues and resolve them when they occur.
Please join Thomas LaRock, SQL Server MVP and Microsoft Certified Master, and Ed Bender, Lead Federal Sales Engineer, for this live event to learn some best practices for federal agencies in server, application and database performance monitoring and problem resolution.
