Superior database performance diagnostics with our SolarWinds alternative

Superior database performance diagnostics

Your next solution provider should offer multiple platform expertise in a single product. Generic performance metrics are of little value when you’re trying to identify the root cause of an issue that’s specific to Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL or other platform. Foglight provides built-in platform-specific intelligence that will help you:

  • Identify baselines and adapt according to historic loads
  • Analyze SQL workload details
  • Analyze locks historically as well as in real time

Foglight’s feature rich workload analysis and diagnostic toolset makes it ideal as a SolarWinds replacement.
