Why is PRTG ideal for database monitoring?


Concise overview


PRTG comes with customizable dashboards which provide you with an overview of all your databases. You can therefore keep a constant eye on query, connection, and return times, and immediately see if everything is OK in your network.


Detailed performance overview


Thanks to custom sensors and individual SQL queries, PRTG can also monitor specific datasets from your databases. For example, you'll be able to see if your online store is slow or if certain datasets are causing problems.


Prompt identification
of problems

Poor database performance may be the result of overloaded hardware or bandwidth bottlenecks. PRTG promptly sends you an alert so you can take the necessary action to stop downtime in its tracks. Your coworkers will thank you for it!

Compatibility with all
the biggest manufacturers

PRTG comes with a variety of preconfigured sensors for all the biggest database environments, including MySQL, Oracle SQL, Microsoft SQL, and PostgreSQL. For other databases, the ADO SQL v2 Sensor will often suffice.


How does PRTG measure database performance?

PRTG can monitor databases directly from the user’s perspective. To do so, it sends queries to the database server and measures the time required for each of the individual steps. You can also configure PRTG to monitor the return value, and define your own threshold values for the latter.

If one of these thresholds is exceeded, you’ll be informed immediately by email, SMS, or push notification.

What’s more, with PRTG you can monitor the performance of Microsoft SQL databases via WMI. PRTG displays values such as the SQL cache memory, as well as the number of batch requests and connections. Simply select all the values you wish to monitor while creating the sensor.
