Pros: There are a lot of performance monitoring tools on the market. What I dislike about all the others is the UI. They're typically cluttered and obnoxious. I'm not interested in having dozens of tabs and buttons spread all over my screen. I want information presented succinctly and clearly that I can drill into quickly. That's exactly what DPA (formerly Confio Ignite) does. Information is presented simply, cleanly in the form of bar graphs. Want more information about a time segment? Click on it. More information on a particular query? Click on it. There's no overuse of tabs and buttons that end up having abbreviated or truncated labels, no obnoxious interface. It's intuitive and straightforward, and it's been a valuable addition to our performance monitoring work.

Cons: We've been using Ignite/DPA for about 18 months now and there's not a lot I dislike about this product. It would be nice if there were a little more customization available on some of the detail screens, and when viewing all of the SQL for a time segment it would be nice if the information weren't presented as an image, which would allow you to search for a text string (that is currently embedded in the image). The upgrade process on *nix is a bit clunky; you have to copy some config files from your old installation directory to the new one.

Pros: Ease of use and history

Cons: Don't really have any.

Overall: Solarwinds DPA has been a great asset to out toolset. While adhoc SQL can tell us a lot this tool helps to bring it all together in a single tool with great visual references. It also provides great history to review issues and performance impact and goals.
