Database Monitoring

Comprehensively monitor all your databases in minutes. Autodiscovery means no scripts to install, no libraries to configure, and no need to figure out what to monitor. Monitor database performance and health side-by-side with the rest of your infrastructure.

Monitor database performance with turn-key integrations:

The best thing to happen to your databases since SQL

Optimize database performance with built-in monitoring, alerting, querying, and graphing for Oracle, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, MongoDB, Cassandra, PostgreSQL and more. To fully monitor most databases, all you need do is enter the hostname. That’s it. LogicMonitor will discover the device type and database – as well as the storage devices, file systems, and interfaces it depends on.

Cloud and on-prem database instances

Monitor Cloud database instances with an LM collector for deeper metrics than provided by cloud vendors.


Seamlessly auto-discover database instances, databases, and system jobs in a matter of minutes – with no software installation.

Business KPIs

Pair database data with business KPIs to instantly understand significant trends or issues and communicate their potential impact.

Gain visibility into infrastructure-level database issues

  • Monitor critical database metrics such as throughput, query execution performance, the number of active connections, buffer pool usage, threads running, and more
  • 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
  • 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

  • Cloud-based, agentless, collectors automatically discover your IT infrastructure without manual configuration
  • Dashboards, alerting, and querying designed to help you maintain and optimize your database performance
  • Coverage for even the most complex infrastructure environments – whether resources are on-premises, spread across multiple data centers, or in the cloud

Correlate database and infrastructure metrics

Not just a DBA tool, a comprehensive monitoring platform that spans databases, infrastructures, applications and buisness services. Get answers to questions like:

  • Is my database getting slower over time?
  • Am I in danger of transaction wraparound?
  • What is the cache hit rate? DB disk reads per second?
  • How close am I to the maximum connections?
  • Why did my disk activity increase after the last release?

Track your company’s network and devices with LogicMonitor.

It’s great since we don’t have to install bothersome agents on the devices or hardware that we want to monitor. I didn’t even need to consult the instructions or contact customer support when I wanted to add a device; the process is simple and easy to follow.

The tool for strategic Managed Services partners

SolarWinds had the big breach just as we left it. We loved how powerful it was, and how customizable – however, it is an ON-Prem tool, and as a growing MSP, that dynamic didn’t and couldn’t scale.

LogicMonitor’s Early Warning System (AIOps) will detect the warning signs and symptoms that precede issues, such as patterns or anomalies in alerts or performance data, and warn users accordingly. These early warnings will trigger actions, such as integrations and custom scripts, to prevent issue occurrence. This Early Warning System will help enterprises avoid outages by warning users sooner, saving them time, money, and avoiding negative impact on their brands.

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?

-Session details (current user connections and locks)
-Scheduled jobs
-Replication details
-Database performance (buffer, cache, connection, lock, and latch)

What is does DBA stand for?

DBA stands for database administrator.

What does JDBC stand for?

JDBC stands for Java Database Connectivity.
