Listen up, THWACKsters: our database fugitive has allegedly been running an expensive query for over ninety minutes. Wait time is well above average and application performance is grinding to a halt. What we need from each and every one of you is a search of every database instance, active session, and query—search on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. Your fugitive's name is X.E. Dental DBA. Your job is to vindicate him and set him free.
You will have the assistance of SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer to help you prove DBA’s innocence, which will provide you with response-time analysis, historical trending, Multi-Dimensional Performance Analysis™, and more.
The race for proof is on! Good luck!
