DB Sentry boosts Azure SQL Database performance

Whether you're using Microsoft Azure SQL Database for your SaaS business, enterprise production, or development and testing, under- or over-provisioning resources can mean either a poor user experience or wasted budget.

DB Sentry helps you monitor performance metrics, including DTU usage, and be notified of events occurring on your system. 

DB Sentry gives you the ability to distinguish consistent performance patterns from anomalies, which is critical to ensuring your data platform delivers optimal performance for the end users of your applications.


Find and fix high-impact queries in Azure SQL Database


Identifying and resolving query performance bottlenecks is often a time consuming and frustrating task, but it doesn't have to be. The Top SQL view in DB Sentry provides the detailed information you need to easily troubleshoot query performance problems in Azure SQL Database.  

  • View T-SQL batches, stored procedures (RPCs), and statement events collected for the current date range that exceeded your minimum duration or other criteria (e.g., CPU percentage, CPU time in milliseconds)

  • Drill down into suspicious queries for more information

  • View historical procedure and statement executions by duration, CPU consumption, or IO usage

  • Analyze query execution plans
