PostgreSQL Performance Tuning Tool

Visualize critical Postgres metrics with multi-dimensional query analysis to pinpoint performance issues

Cloud to on-premises PostgreSQL coverage

No matter where you run your PostgreSQL database instances, be it on a Linux or Windows Server, VMware virtual machine or cloud platform, SolarWinds® Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) has you covered.

Broad PostgreSQL platform support includes the following:

  • PostgreSQL
  • EDB Postgres
  • Azure Database for PostgreSQL
  • Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL
  • Amazon Aurora for PostgreSQL
  • Google Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL

DPA’s hybrid approach to PostgreSQL database management provides a single-pane-of-glass view into database performance tuning and optimization with agentless architecture and less than 1% overhead.

Visibility into the PostgreSQL metrics that matter

DPA’s 24/7, down-to-the-second data collection measures a broad set of metrics for your PostgreSQL environment including key system metrics like disk, memory, and network. In addition, key PostgreSQL specific metrics are at your fingertips:

  • Cache eviction
  • Checkpoints
  • Replication
  • Vacuum
  • Row operations
  • License compliance

With these metrics and more, combined with real-time and historical views, DBAs have easy access to PostgreSQL tuning metrics. 

Machine learning + query advisors = PostgreSQL optimization

Machine learning that gets smarter over time is the basis for DPA’s anomaly detection, using seasonality to determine what’s normal and what isn’t. This powerful feature gives DBAs the ability to find performance issues—including those they weren’t aware of—typically in seconds.

Machine learning combined with advanced wait-time analysis shows why and where a query is being impacted, giving visibility into PostgreSQL optimization that legacy monitoring solutions can’t deliver.

DPA takes PostgreSQL tuning a step further with expert advice via query advisors pointing out the culprits of performance degradation. 

In-depth PostgreSQL Azure, AWS, and Google tuning

When you run PostgreSQL on a cloud computing platform, performance optimization and tuning are key, since you’re pay for compute resources and inefficient, poorly written queries can cost you money—not to mention the impact on front-end application performance.

DPA delivers a holistic approach to PostgreSQL performance management, including:

  • Real-time and historical views
  • 24/7 down-to-the-second data collection
  • Simple, agentless implementation with less than 1% overhead
  • Postgres-specific reporting, ad-hoc or scheduled
  • Anomaly detection powered by machine learning
  • Multi-dimensional query wait time analysis
  • Query advisors to pinpoint problem areas
  • Both system and PostgreSQL metrics
  • Drill down to the SQL text and run live plans
  • Custom drag-and-drop email alert template
  • RESTful API for automation integration

DPA can be implemented on a physical server or VM, in Azure, or as service in AWS.    

Integrated monitoring for virtualized PostgreSQL

DBAs are often the point person when it comes to PostgreSQL performance tuning and analysis. When someone complains about poor application performance, the database back end often gets first blame.

But what if the PostgreSQL instance is running in a VMware virtual machine? Many times, the DBA has zero visibility into the impact—if any—of the virtual infrastructure supporting the Postgres instance. Integrated virtualization monitoring via the DPA VM Option provides DBAs with the data they need to determine if the VM is causing performance issues for Postgres or not. From a unique “time slice” view layering VM metrics with database metrics to in-depth ESXi host metrics, DBAs are armed with the data they need to determine the impact on their PostgreSQL instance.
