Why were Rave Mobile looking for a MySQL and SQL Server performance monitoring solution?

You can imagine how important the performance of Rave’s IT systems and supporting databases are. We are proud that DBmarlin was chosen to continuously monitor and help optimise the performance of MySQL and SQL Server databases across multiple North American data centers.

And it really has…"

How DBmarlin helps Rave Mobile stay on top of database performance

"We really like DBmarlin and already have multiple teams using it across our business. The clean and clear modern UI makes it extremely easy to use, even if you are not a DBA. In particular, I really appreciate how DBmarlin brings together and correlates database performance and change information.

Within a few weeks, we had DBAs, QA engineers and developers all using DBmarlin which has really improved our efficiency. It has made non-DBAs much more self-sufficient, allowing them to spot slowdowns and understand the root cause in record time.

While we all know that no software is perfect, working with the DBmarlin team is like the old days when there really was a partnership. They are always available for support or to answer even the dumbest of questions.

Our next action is to use DBmarlin’s API to automatically import notification events of software releases and display them alongside our performance data. Doing this will make it clear when a new release has impacted performance, ensuring we can take immediate action should problems occur. Another extremely valuable feature we will be using more is DBmarlin’s ability to compare performance over two different time periods. Allowing you to compare performance profiles before and after a change or alternatively compare performance for multiple load tests, gives you confidence you are going in the right direction.

The DBmarlin product and team behind it is a winning combination. If you need something to take some stress out of your life give DBMarlin a try!”
