Time Sucka'

Virtual Vandal

How many days of your life have you spent pouring over stats, charts, and dashboards trying to figure out WHAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM? Or spent hours firefighting a problem that you know could have been avoided if you just had time to modify that query last week? That, my friends, is the Time-Sucka. Chasing elusive problems, firefighting, explaining technical issues to your boss, developers, or even other DBAs, are all DBA Time-Suckas. And he LOVES to move in on your personal time. You remember personal time, right?

Take back your day! And evenings, weekends...

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer (formerly Confio Ignite) is this monster's biggest enemy. Database Performance Analyzer's response time focus pinpoints the biggest performance issues in seconds, so you can identify the root cause of the problem and resolve it fast.

Stop wasting time chasing down performance problems. Download a free 14-day Database Performance Analyzer trial and fix problems fasta'!
