The DPA 2020.2 Release Candidate is now available!
We are excited to announce that the SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) 2020.2 Release Candidate (RC) is now available for existing DPA customers. DPA 2020.2 RC is a fully tested and supported version of Database Performance Analyzer. You can upgrade current production servers while retaining your complete configuration and history.
The key features available in DPA 2020.2 include:
DPA now provides performance analysis for PostgreSQL, the most requested DPA feature in THWACK® and the #4 most popular database management system.**
What’s more, DPA’s PostgreSQL support extends to numerous standard and DBaaS (DB as a service) variants, including:
EDB Postgres Advanced Server (EPAS)
Including the Oracle Syntax option
Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL
Amazon Aurora for PostgreSQL
Azure DB for PostgreSQL
Return to normal alert notifications
DPA 2020.2 adds the capability to send notifications via SNMP traps or e-mails when an alert’s status returns to normal. Orion® Platform and third-party alert managers can now synchronize their corresponding alert's status or take other actions such as reducing the priority of related incident tickets.
The below configures an alert to send notifications to a distribution list when the status of the alert first returns to normal.
Trusted certificate management
DPA 2020.2 has added an option to view and manage trusted certificates that may be used in securing communications to databases. DPA can view certificates in the Java Trust Store. It can view and manage certificates (e.g., import and delete) in its own DPA Trust Store and restrict certificates to be Database specific. Currently, only PostgreSQL registrations can take advantage of DPA Trust Store certificates. All other types still leverage those in the Java Trust Store.
Certificate file types supported to import into the DPA Trust Store include:
PKCS#12 (*.pf2 or *.pfx)
DER (*.der or *.cer)
PEM (*.pem, *.crt, *.ca-bundle)
