Documentation forDatabase Performance Analyzer

Introduction to DPA

You can use Database Performance Analyzer (DPA) to monitor, diagnose, and resolve performance problems for many types of database instances, both self-managed and in the cloud.

DPA has agentless architecture and uses wait-based analytics for extended database monitoring. DPA uses less than one percent of resources on production systems.

Get a walk-through of DPA functionality from the DPA Getting Started Guide.

Use alerts to become aware of issues and address them proactively before they affect end users.

Use reports to identify database trends, track the results of your performance tuning, and communicate those results to others.
