Operationalize multi-team visibility into infrastructure-level database issues

  • checkmark icon Monitor critical database metrics such as throughput, query execution performance, the number of active connections, buffer pool usage, threads running, and more.
  • checkmark icon Put an end to alert fatigue with customizable alert thresholds, root cause analysis, and anomaly detection to ensure IT teams only receive alerts for issues that matter.
  • checkmark icon Track the capacity of the database over time to plan for future resource allocations and prevent unexpected downtime.

Rapidly troubleshoot database issues

LogicMonitor’s dashboards, intelligent alerting, forecasting, and detailed reporting elevate visibility into database performance and application health. Rapidly identify deadlocks, bottlenecks, error rates, and more. Visualize relationships between these resources with topology maps that help to identify the root cause of a problem and streamline MTTR.

Eliminate configuration overhead

LogicMonitor’s cloud-based, agentless, collectors automatically discover your IT infrastructure without manual configuration. Within minutes you’ll have the monitoring, alerting and graphing you need to maintain and optimize your database infrastructure. Get the coverage you need for even the most complex infrastructure environments – whether resources are on-premises, spread across multiple data centers, or in the cloud.

Out of box coverage

LogicMonitor’s database monitoring coverage includes extensive out-of-the-box resources with built-in monitoring, alerting, and graphing for AWS, SQL Server, MongoDB, Oracle, Cassandra, MariaDB and many more.

Database monitoring FAQs

What is Database Monitoring?

Database monitoring is the tracking of database performance and resources in order to create and maintain a high performance and highly available application infrastructure. To carry out monitoring, data from each of these categories is analyzed in order to minimize, or ideally prevent, database outages or slowdowns.


Why is database monitoring important?

With the data and metrics, teams are provided with all the information they need to identify and solve any databases issues that impact application performance and are then able to set up high-performing databases.


How do you manage database performance?

Managing database performance involves many factors, from indexes and queries to servers and storage. You must be sure you’re monitoring the right metrics, following best practices, and optimizing key functions across your DBMS infrastructure.


What categories does database monitoring include?

-Query details (top CPU, slow running, and most frequent)
-Session details (current user connections and locks)
-Scheduled jobs
-Replication details
-Database performance (buffer, cache, connection, lock, and latch)
