Visual Expert helps review and improve the response time of database code (procedures, functions, triggers, queries…).
It is meant for projects using:
VE must access the database to collect performance data: either your Visual Expert instance can directly connect to the database, or an authorized personnel (DBA for instance) will run a Visual Expert utility against the database to collect it.
Please follow the procedure corresponding to your configuration:
Once the performance data is accessible, VE must analyze your code again, to combine performance data and source code.
Then, you will be able to answer the following questions:
|Identify slow objects||Find and sort objects by low response time.|
|Optimize a slow object||Break down the response time of a slow object into smaller pieces to identify and remove bottlenecks.|
|Optimize slow SQLs||List the SQL queries accessing a table. Sort them by response time. Review their execution plan to improve them.|
|Optimize a business process||Analyze the chain of calls behind an application feature: identify slow objects affecting the user experience.|
|Review production metrics||Identify the largest tables, the most frequently executed objects, the objects frequently referenced by code, etc.|
