The slowest part of most applications is the database
Increasing performance at that level usually leads to productivity gains
across your entire business.
Prevent These Problems
- Slow Application Performance
- Unscalable Database Solutions
- Dissatisfied Customers
- Dissatisfied Employees
Help me. My slow application is killing my business!
When you start to notice employee and customer complaints piling up about your application’s performance, things usually start to head downhill pretty fast from there, so the sooner you get a SQL Server DB expert involved the more time, money and productivity you will save.
How we fix your critical application performance problems
At SQLWatchmen, we use a proven method of our putting our own proprietary diagnostic tools in the hands of our expert database consultants to quickly identify performance bottlenecks, create a prioritized data acceleration plan, fix your immediate issues and help you avoid the same issues in the future. Here’s the step-by-step process we use to get your application back to peak performance fast:
Step one: We use our proprietary SQL Server Health Check Tool in combination with our extensive custom script library (compiled over decades of DB consulting) to automatically scan your entire system for performance problems.
Step two: One of our experienced consultants will interpret the results of the scan to determine the root cause of the performance issue(s).
Step three: Your dedicated consultant will quickly determine which of the major components in your server (CPU, Memory, Disk/Storage, Network) is causing the biggest drag on your performance. Once we’ve prioritized the issues and any conflicts, we can start to focus on exactly what is causing your bottleneck(s).
Step four: After we’ve made all of the necessary backups and adjustments to ensure the integrity of your existing systems, your consultant will start improving your application’s performance with a combination of CPU tuning, memory adjustments, changes to TempDB, index adjustments, Stored Procedure/View modification suggestions and addressing any of the hundreds of factors that can play a role in making your SQL Server work more efficiently with your data.
Step five: After the critical performance issues are addressed, our consultants can help you minimize future problems by adjusting settings and indexes; changing your server configuration; or even working with your development staff to find and fix hidden inefficiencies in the code.
We can help you, too.
Help me. I need to make sure my application won’t limit my growth
Our performance-tuning services can help almost any application, by reducing how hard SQL Server has to work to access your critical data. Instead of ‘flipping through the book page by page’ to locate your application data, we can tune your SQL Server so it can find and retrieve your data much more quickly. It’s easy enough to flip through a comic book, but flipping through an unabridged dictionary to find one word is a different matter altogether.
Application performance audit benefits
Our proactive SQL Server performance audit can help you avoid expensive problems before they become problems. Many applications won’t exhibit any performance problems until a lot of data has been added to the database. The unfortunate reality is that by the time enough data has been accumulated to start causing problems, the application in question has usually become a business-critical tool (which is usually the reason all of that data has been added). The importance of the application to your company only magnifies the problem as people can’t perform their day-to-day jobs efficiently and customers have trouble interacting with your company.
Our performance tuning services are perfect for businesses that require ongoing SQL Server maintenance. General technology or development companies are great a building an application from the ground up, but they are often not familiar with the roadblocks that can occur when the database grows and is being accessed by hundreds of users simultaneously. That’s where SQLWatchmen can help. We are SQL Server experts and our consultants have decades of diagnostic, administration, troubleshooting and performance-tuning experience. We’ve helped hundreds of companies make confident business decisions, because they know their applications have been future-proofed to handle rapid growth.
A SQLWatchmen database performance audit can:
- Identify built-in performance issues before they start costing you money;
- Uncover database problems that can prevent you from scaling your systems to meet the demands of your growing business;
- Pinpoint the server components that are most likely to cause trouble down the line and proactively fix them;
- Implement the advanced performance tuning enhancements we have developed over decades of SQL Server consulting, to pave a smooth path for your business to grow.
