New "Qure Workload Analyzer" Provides Multi-Dimensional Analysis and Comparison of Microsoft SQL Server Database Workloads

PASS Summit, SEATTLE, November 9, 2010 - DBSophic, an innovative provider of performance management products for
database-centric applications, today announced a new free solution to help
SQL Server DBAs identify and trouble-shoot database performance problems. The
product, Qure Workload Analyzer, will be officially unveiled on Wednesday,
November 10
, 2pm in the Exhibitor Theatre at the PASS Summit.

DBSophic's newest offering analyzes database workloads comprised of one
or more SQL traces and provides DBAs with deep, intelligent analysis. An
intuitive graphical interface and multi-dimensional grouping, sorting and
filtering make it easy to identify and analyze performance bottlenecks.

Ami Levin, DBSophic's CTO and SQL Server MVP, explains: "Trying to get to
the bottom of a performance issue by examining raw trace data can be a very
tedious task, even for experienced DBAs. There are tools available to help,
but too often they provide only a partial picture. So we built Workload
Analyzer to provide clear, immediate answers to every conceivable question
regarding the workload. For example, 'which user consumed the most CPU
between 10:00 and 11:00 on Monday, and what applications was he running?'"

Another unique ability of Qure Workload Analyzer is the comparison of two
different database workloads. Again Levin explains: "Very often DBAs are
faced with the challenge of quantifying the true effect of a particular
change to a production database. By comparing the 'before' and 'after'
workloads, Workload Analyzer can reveal the impact of a hardware change,
version upgrade, or tuning effort. For example, 'How much less CPU is
consumed overall, by a particular application, after the recent tuning
initiative?' Since the workloads compared will usually be very different,
Workload Analyzer includes powerful normalization and weighting capabilities
that reveal the true benefits achieved."

Qure Workload Analyzer is being launched as a free product for the
benefit of the SQL Server community worldwide. Workload Analyzer is part of
the Qure product suite that also includes Qure Workload Optimizer
(www.dbsophic.con/product), the first workload tuning solution for SQL

Qure Workload Analyzer (beta) may be downloaded from DBSophic's website
(www.dbsophic.com/). For more information, please visit DBSophic at
the PASS Summit, booth 219 & 221.
