Faster SQL Profiling for Better Database Performance

This paper discusses how DB Optimizer helps you profile your databases to find problematic SQL statements faster and easier.

In short, DB Optimizer prevents you from spinning your “profiling” wheels by providing three time-saving methods to profile your databases:

  • Pinpoint SQL causing poor database performance with graphical visualization of wait-time analysis
  • Find detailed activity information for an individual SQL statement, including the SQL text, events, sessions, child cursors, and SQL details
  • Complete one-stop profiling with an easily installable, agent-less desktop tool that provides support for multiple RDMS platforms
   

Embarcadero’s industry-leading Java™ and SQL optimization tools let you detect performance problems earlier, correct them faster, and minimize the risk of ever deploying poor-performing code into production. Top-performing systems helps minimize IT spend by ensuring that applications and databases fully optimized to utilize existing IT resources.

EMBARCADERO OPTIMIZATION TOOLS

  • DB Optimizer is a SQL validation tool that examines SQL queries to uncover inefficiencies and offers alternatives to improve SQL performance and prevent poor-performing SQL from ever reaching the production environment.
  • J Optimizer is a Java profiling tool designed to find and fix code problems earlier in the development process. Dynamic code analysis tools identify performance problems such as potential race conditions and unchecked exceptions, and memory and CPU bottlenecks. Advanced code metrics reveal the quality and complexity of the code structure to quickly pinpoint potential problem areas.
  • Performance Center is a 24x7 database monitoring tool that tracks and reports on all aspects of database activity like memory, I/O, contention, space, network, objects, users, and SQL code to pinpoint performance problems.
  • Schema Examiner is a design or architecture validation tool that looks at the structure of the database to find improper indexing, normalization problems and other relational modeling errors that impact database performance
