RE: Database performance monitoring tool for developers.

I'm sure that a lot of the members of the list have opinions on the subject, including myself. Now I like the developers and especially the duhvelopers to have access to tools that give them insight into what their application is doing to the database, but I much prefer them having that access (in a non destructive way) on the production DB as well. In development they may not have access to as much data as the production db holds, nor are they seeing the combined effects of all of the application at once. Mamba was one heck of a good tool for the purpose since it was read only. Anyone have an idea where one can acquire an updated copy of it or a replacement?? The original was FREE. OH well, maybe I'll have to invent my own again. Come on JAVA!!

No development should ever take place without the developers having access to performance monitoring tools. The developers really should be the first ones to see the effects on performance on their code.

Hello, How does the list feel about providing developers access to

ad-hoc/real-time, problem solving diagnostics tool such as Spotlight, Mamba

etc. to developers to provide first-line support. I'm not so crazy about the

it; but was wondering on what the list's opinion would be. Comments please.
