Live Webcast: Database Performance Tuning for Virtualized Database Instances

Event has ended



With over 500,000 customers and tens of millions of virtual machines (VM), VMware is a leader in data center and cloud virtualization. The ubiquitous use of virtualization has implications, both good and bad for SQL Server database instances running in a VM.


Join us for a look at how SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) provides detailed performance data for SQL Server database instances running in VMware® ESXi environments. Virtualization provides many benefits, but how do you know if the vSphere is negatively impacting database performance? What about a nightmare scenario where nothing changed with the application or underlying database, yet users complain of performance issues.


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 Database Performance Analyzer works with VMware vSphere
  • See DPA in action with the performance insights needed to solve application critical issues
