Historical PostgreSQL Performance

The AppDynamics Activity View is the main view in AppDynamics where historical activity and performance information are displayed, including:

  • Time series activity graphs showing PostgreSQL resource consumption versus number of completed database queries
  • Completely configurable views, from last 5 minutes to last 30 days
  • Breakdown of activity by active or waiting (e.g. locked)
  • Correlated drilldown by server, SQL, grouped SQL, user, session, and database

PostgreSQL Performance Statistics

  • Report and analyze activity by transaction
  • Report cache hit rate per database
  • View tuple access type over time
  • View and report on standby conflicts (version 9.0 and later)

SQL Drilldown

Once poor-performing SQL has been identified by AppDynamics, you DBA can drill into the SQL View to display details of the statement and execution plan:

  • One click statement analysis shows the SQL execution plan to quickly see if it has the optimum access path
  • View the performance of the SQL historically
  • Display wait states correlated with SQL

PostgreSQL Objects View

The AppDynamics Objects View displays current PostgreSQL configuration parameters and properties, as well as information related to database objects:

  • One-click view to check or cross-reference database config values
  • Quickly view all information for a specific object (also displayed in correlation with a SQL execution plan)
  • Display historical config changes to your PostgreSQL instance

Comprehensive Performance Reports

AppDynamics has many powerful historical reports, including:

  • Time Series Comparison: Compare two periods of time and immediately quantify the difference in performance between them. Ideal for comparing separate load tests, or for investigating problematic time periods in production.
  • Top N SQL report: Powerful visualizations to report on your top SQL statements over time
