According to an Redgate Software survey, more than seventy percent (79%) of database professionals now utilize either a paid-for or in-house monitoring solution. The 86% satisfaction rate with for-profit monitoring technologies is also at an all-time high, up 18 percentage points from the prior year, an increase of 10 percentage points from the same study last year.

The expansion is partially attributable to the continuous complexity and growth of database estates; according to IDC, installed storage capacity will expand by 240% between 2021 and 2025, and practically every business sector will experience significant cloud adoption.

The poll found that enterprises want to maintain the effectiveness and performance of expanding estates, completely address security and compliance issues, and expand the visibility of monitoring data to include developers and IT teams in addition to Database Administrators (DBAs).

DBAs are then put under extra stress as many claim they are asked to do more with less work. Consequently, the adoption of database monitoring tools has increased since they seem to lessen frustration, save time, and free up DBAs to concentrate on other areas where they can add value to the company.

While a DBA could be in charge of just one SQL Server server, generally it’s dozens or even thousands, as Kathi Kellenberger, Microsoft Data Platform MVP and editor of the technical newsletter for data professionals, Simple Talk, explains. Without an effective monitoring tool, the DBA will spend all of their time putting out fires rather than learning about and utilizing new features, optimizing badly performing queries, preparing for new systems, and participating in more useful tasks.

In contrast to the hours it would take with manual monitoring, a good monitoring tool can give a DBA and the larger IT team a single point of access to monitor all the SQL Server instances they manage, both on-premises and in the cloud, for problems, send alerts when issues do arise, and drill down to the root cause in minutes.

The usefulness of a monitoring tool for the entire organization, Redgate’s most recent insights report from the monitoring survey, explores issues like these. It takes information from the poll about how businesses around the world are now monitoring their databases, their satisfaction levels, and the greatest, most difficult problems they face, and analyzes it.

Over 2,500 IT experts from all business sectors responded to the fourth global State of Database Monitoring Survey, which was conducted in the summer of 2021, about the challenges they encounter at this period of transformation and change. The Redgate monitoring team has previously reported on how data professionals are adjusting to rapidly expanding server estates, and it is currently examining security and compliance issues in greater detail as well as the complexity of cloud and hybrid estates.
