MySQL Performance Tuning

No matter where MySQL runs—from the cloud to a VM—SolarWinds has you covered.

MySQL has become one of the most popular databases for a new generation of enterprise applications. Is your database performance monitoring tool up for the job?

SolarWinds knows a lot about database performance management because we’ve provided solutions for MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona for years, with thousands of database instances being monitored.

Our MySQL database coverage is second to none thanks to our broad support for a range of MySQL instances, including on-premises, Azure, Amazon RDS, and Aurora. We’ve been in database performance management for over a decade, and have taken a consistent approach by providing a common set of features across database platforms along with features specific to MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona. Our holistic approach includes not only performance monitoring but MySQL query tuning, I/O tuning, and more.

With either choice, you’re the winner:

  • SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) supports a broad set of database platforms, including Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, and more. Deep MySQL query tuning and analysis combined with machine learning and integration with the SolarWinds Orion® Platform deliver end-to-end IT performance management.
  • SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor (DPM) is a MySQL monitoring solution designed to deliver a software as a service (SaaS)-based interface capable of being used by developers, SREs, and DBAs. Additionally, it provides system and database monitoring and analysis for leading open-source databases, including Postgres, MongoDB, and Redis.
