LSN (Log Sequence Number|), which provides a unique identification of a point in a database's log, is used for determining determine when a page was last modified.


A unit of measurement that can be applied to a database. Metrics can help gauge the performance of a system.

A metric is an individual piece of information that Foglight for Azure SQL Database collects about the performance of a system. The information may be a numeric value (a number or percentage), a string of text, or some other piece of data.

Every time the Foglight for Azure SQL Database dashboard is refreshed, the cartridge retrieves the latest value of the metric, which can then be displayed in a drilldown or on the home page.

Network Wait

Network wait events occur when a session spends time waiting for messages to be sent or received over the network interface.

Network performance, which is measured in number (per second) of packets sent and received, can be used just like disk statistics to detect overload or non-optimal performance within a network or a network interface.

Excessive network wait can result from either:


Online Transaction Processing. OLTP allows real-time processing of SQL transactions, in order to support Customer Relationship Management (CRM), ERP, and other time-critical applications. OLTP is characterized by high rates of index lookups, single row modifications, and frequent commits.

Because real-time transaction processing is being increasingly carried out on a network and may include more than one company, OLTP databases use client/server processing and allow transactions to run on different platforms in a network.
