Next generation database monitoring tool - DBmarlin reaches beta

Next generation database monitoring tool - DBmarlin reaches beta

Prepare for the next generation of database monitoring. Application Performance Ltd (AP) are thrilled to announce that DBmarlin launched in closed Beta test on 21st August. Anyone wanting to get early access can register now at register.dbmarlin.com

Having been involved in database monitoring and optimisation since 1998 and bringing DBTuna to market in 2009, we felt it was the right time to develop the next generation of database monitoring.

DBmarlin has been designed from the ground up to be easy to use for anyone needing to optimise a database, not only expert DBAs and database performance specialists, as is often the case with other tools. It can identify inefficient SQL and quickly pinpoint the root cause.

In short DBmarlin is engineered to help your database run fast, and stay fast!


DBmarlin features include

  • Modern responsive UI (can be viewed on any device including mobile)
  • Support for modern database platforms such as Cloud (E.g. Amazon RDS)
  • Granularity down to 1 second intervals
  • Single pane of glass for many database technologies
  • Captures all important SQL and their wait-events
  • Auto detects changes (db properties, schema changes & explain plans)
  • Auto recommendations (coming soon*)
  • Full integration with Instana APM to see application context

Supported databases

The beta includes support for the following databases:

  • MySQL 5.6, 5.7, 8.0 (Including Percona, MariaDB, and RDS Aurora)
  • PostgreSQL 9, 10, 11, 12 (Including TimeScaleDB and RDS Aurora)
  • Oracle (coming soon*)
  • SQL Server (coming soon*)

Beta benefits

The good news for those who get involved in the Beta and provide feedback is that when we launch you will receive 1 FREE licence to monitor a database of your choice.
