Site reliability engineering (SRE) is the practice of using software tools to automate IT infrastructure tasks such as system management and application monitoring. In some organisations, the responsibilty may lie with the Database Administrator (DBA) but in many cases it could be the SRE team that need to make sure the database and SQL statements are running optimally.
With the shift to the Cloud, it is becoming more common for other roles such as SRE to perform DBA-like tasks such as performance tuning because in some cases there is no DBA any longer.
In mid to large organisations, there is more likely to be a DBA but often the relationship between DBA and SRE can be tricky. Having clearly defined responsibilties for each role and sharing a common monitoring tool can hugely aid in the communication of database performance issues.
Site reliability engineering (SRE) teams use observability tools to detect abnormal behaviors in the software and, more importantly, collect information that helps developers understand what causes the problem.
Have your CI or CD tools send events to our API so you see them on the charts in DBmarlin. This makes it easy to see if a code release had a positive or negative impact on the database.
Any time you make a code change there is the potential for it to impact on database performance. DBmarlin monitors every statement and you can drill down to understand its performance profile and execution plan in order to tune it.
DBmarlin has a built-in knowledge-base for database wait events and statement execution plan operations which will guide the tuning process showing what can be done to improve performance.
DBmarlin monitors database performance, tracks changes and helps your databases run fast.
Provides an easy to use and consistent way to monitor MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, IBM Db2 & CockroachDB, self-hosted or cloud.
Captures SQL statement text and wait states so you can see exactly where the time is spent when executing SQL within your databases.
Pick any 2 periods and let DBmarlin automatically do the analysis to see if performance has improved or degraded.
Send deployment events to DBmarlin from your CI pipeline so you can see them as markers on the time-series charts.
Save granular data and keep the data for as long as you need. You can even store a link to the snapshot in your ticketing system.
Creates a modern and consistent user interface across different database technologies that are easy to understand for experts and non-experts.
Cross-platform database performance tuning and optimisation
Supports cloud-hosted as well as self-hosted databases
DBmarlin can be up and running in minutes, collecting vital information about exactly how your databases are working to support your users. It’s simple to spot performance bottlenecks, relate problems to any changes made and focus on the right corrective actions.
