SolarWinds DPA alerts give you proactive control of your databases, notifying you of issues before they become problems for your customers.

Set thresholds on key wait time statistics or on standard administration indicators. That way the DBA group receives an early warning of potential problems, and can take steps to solve the underlying issue before it affects users.

The result is improved customer service, fewer help desk tickets, and increased compliance with database service-level agreements.
