Use the DPA Integration Module with SAM
If your environment includes both SAM and SolarWinds Data Performance Analyzer (DPA), you can use the DPA Integration Module (DPAIM) to:
- Visualize DPA data in AppStack.
- Establish relationships between applications monitored by SAM and database instances monitored by DPA.
- Leverage SAM application monitor templates for DPA monitoring.
With SAM, you can monitor resources and other health aspects of a database, as well as track how long queries take to execute. If queries are slow, you can use DPA to track what is happening within the DBMS. For example, is it waiting on I/O, CPU, VM scheduling, or is it blocked by another query? With this knowledge, you can resolve the problem instead of just knowing you have a slow query.
DPAIM is automatically installed with SAM, but is not active until it's configured. See Set up the DPA Integration Module.
