Pros: Agent base software, easy to install and manage on either Physical or Virtual OS. Provide useful information on database performance (CPU, disk, query, wait time, and other status). Allow to setup any custom alerts and monitoring on MySQL or MSQL.

Cons: The agent itself could be sometimes consume some memory / threads / process if your database server is light on resources and critical on performance.

Overall: Useful current or historical information on query (high wait / load / execute time).

Pros: The indepth detail and knowledge you get from this product is amazing, more than a reporting tool, its full monitoring with drill down details of storage, applications and more.

Cons: There is No support for SAP HANA. We moved from a supported MS SQL database to HANA for SAP and it doesn't have mature support for HANA.

Comments: Go ahead to use it

Pros: The really nice thing about DPA is that I can send developers a login and link (you can create non-admin "read" accounts) and it's easy enough to use that they can visualize and understand things without having to jump into an user guide. the tool is simple to use and offers a viable freeware whose only basic limitation is a four window for history - this allows for one to test drive the software and see exactly what it can do.

Cons: 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. It will be good if the price is lower

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.
