About Navicat Monitor

Navicat Monitor is a safe, simple and agentless remote server monitoring tool that includes many powerful features to make your monitoring effective as possible. You can access Navicat from anywhere via a web browser to access statistics on server load and performance regarding its availability, disk usage, network I/O, table locks and more. Using this valuable data, you can easily examine possible solutions, tune the databases, and address potential issues before they can become serious problems or costly outages.

Navicat Monitor is a server-based software which can be accessed from anywhere via a web browser. With web access, you can easily and seamlessly keep track of your servers around the world, around the clock.

Support for PostgreSQL Instances

Just as version 2 added support for SQL Server, version 3 can monitor PostgreSQL as well. Here are all supported DB types in the New Instance menu:

new_instance_menu (25K)

Selecting PostgreSQL from the list brings up the New PostgreSQL Instance dialog, which includes all of the configuration options that you might need for a PostgreSQL instance:

new_postgresql_instance_dialog (68K)

You'll be happy to know that the SQL Profiler also works for PostgreSQL instances. It's a tool that provides graphical query execution details for locating inefficient and slow queries. It supports the creation of traces to collect data about the queries executed on an instance. The data can later be analyzed and used to troubleshoot performance issues.

Enhanced Query Analyzer and Long Running Queries

The Query Analyzer tool provides a graphical representation of the query logs that makes interpreting their contents much easier. In addition, the Query Analyzer tool enables you to monitor and optimize query performance, visualize query activity statistics, analyze SQL statements, as well as quickly identify and resolve long running queries. In version 3, the Long Running Queries chart has been moved to the top of the page for easier identification:

Moreover, the entire Long Running Queries section provides the ability to drill down to specific intervals:

long_running_queries (83K)

Information about Long Running Queries may be exported as a PDF or scheduled report.
