Analyzing Operating System Performance
Solving database performance issues sometimes requires the use of operating system (OS) utilities. These tools often provide information that can help isolate database performance problems. Consider the following situations:
- You're running multiple databases and multiple applications on one server and want to use OS utilities to identify which database (and corresponding process) is consuming the most operating system resources. This approach is invaluable when one database application is consuming resources to the point of causing other databases on the box to perform poorly.
