DBAs now have another free, but scaled down, tool to help in the analysis of Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, and DB2/LUW systems. As the free tool uses the same agent-less and low-load monitoring of the full product this might be a nice way to dive into response-time analysis without having to remove a trial product after a designated period of time.
|"We developed IgniteFree to help DBAs, database developers and IT managers do real-time performance fire-fighting," said Matt Larson, CEO and founder of Confio. "Other free monitoring tools only offer a few server health statistics. By placing a free response-time analysis tool in the hands of all DBAs and developers, we can educate the largest number of users on the benefits of response-time analysis."|
