Cloud Database Performance Monitoring

Meet the first database performance platform to provide high-level and deep-dive metrics for hybrid cloud environments


Prevent Throttling and Oversubscription

Cloud databases provide the biggest cost advantages when you can accurately predict your actual usage. But the limits of some monitoring tools make it difficult to track historical resource utilization. SelectStar keeps an eye on AWS read/write unit capacity and Microsoft Azure DTU and Elastic Pool usage to help you stay within your service tier and avoid performance penalties. It also provides you with up to one year of historical data for better capacity planning and budgeting.

See Cloud Databases More Clearly

Cloud databases–like those on Amazon RDS–cannot be monitored the same way as their on-premises counterparts. Because cloud database monitoring and management data can be stored in different places, native tools like CloudWatch may only give you a portion of the details you need. What’s more, each cloud installation exposes metrics a little differently. SelectStar weaves together data from your cloud database and cloud infrastructure accounts into a single, consistent interface so you can pinpoint issues more accurately.

Unify Monitoring in Hybrid Cloud Environments

Cloud database adoption may be growing rapidly, but for now, most of us are running some cloud databases and others in on-premises environments. Unfortunately, this can mean navigating between multiple database monitoring tools, trying to piece together a comprehensive view of your database ecosystem. SelectStar covers more than any other database performance monitoring platform–up to 95% of in-production databases–which means you’ll get a single view of all of your databases and a prioritized list of actions for your entire data layer.
