NetProspex is a B2B platform that enhances lead generation by separating the information that matters and enabling marketers to better segment and target their audience. Managing the massive amount of incoming data is cumbersome for one DBA.
In the past, NetProspex used Tools like Nagios and MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM), but both fell short of the company’s monitoring needs.
NetProspex needed a tool that showed the DBA and developer the specific reason for system slowdowns, as well as a proactive solution to pinpoint queries that needed attention to use system resources effectively and prevent delayed performance problems and system errors.
Hiring another DBA was both difficult and expensive, so Josh Prunier, DBA at NetProspex, began evaluating alternative solutions. Aside from VividCortex, New Relic’s MySQL plug-in was the major choice, but it offered limited functionality. Over the past eight months, VividCortex has improved NetProspex’s insight into query and server behavior and reduced overhead costs.
VividCortex has resulted in faster deploys to improve time-to-market, reduced resource costs and generally reduced headaches for DBAs and developers, making everyone happier.
