Virtualized Databases: Performance Considerations for DBAs
A SolarWinds survey showed that 87% of database instances run in a virtual machine (VM) which means the complexity of finding application performance issues related to databases becomes more complex. While DBAs deal with the constant perception that “the database is the problem”, how do they know the impact the virtual infrastructure has on the database?
This whitepaper explores the virtualization metrics that matter for DBA’s responsible for database performance tuning and optimization. By giving DBAs the right virtualization metrics, they can avoid wasting time trying to figure out if the VM has anything to do with poor database performance.
