Do you know why SQL server database performance monitoring tools are important to understand? DBA S, SREs, or application developers who work with databases need the ability to perform basic database troubleshooting. Easy-to-use tools are now available that allow users to determine which queries consume substantial system resources and diagnose why they consume higher-than-average resources.

A particular query may be inefficient or rely on a database or a portion of a database that is not optimized for a specific query.

The latter situation suggests the administrator should consider modifying the database to allow future queries to run more efficiently. This may result from the current database design needing to account for new combinations of variables being queried. For example, when you or your competitors introduce new products, or an analyst has an insight, they may run new queries that access data across databases that are not mapped or indexed effectively. If the new queries become more frequent, changes to the databases may help them run more efficiently.

SQL server database performance monitoring tools work on databases stored on-premise or in the cloud. Tracking the active connections across your fleet of databases helps identify databases that may be at risk of overloading, keeping queries from being executed. This analysis can help determine if specific queries are blocking others or if there are factors affecting their execution that can be made more efficient.
