Key New Features Available in SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) 2022.3.7963:

New Tuning Index Advisor

In addition to the existing Query and Table Tuning Advisors, a new Tuning Index Advisor is now available for both Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases. The new Index Advisor recommends a prioritized list of indexes and their related tables which if created, our analysis indicates would likely have the greatest reduction in net wait time. Unlike the Table and Query advisors whose recommendations are restricted in scope to either a single query or table, the new Index Advisor analyzes all of a database instance's queries, tables, existing indexes, and index best practices to identify the top proposed indexes having the greatest total performance improvement. 

Index Advisor Example
