Hide SolarWinds Database Performance Monitor Queries From The Profiler and Explorer

SolarWinds® Database Performance Monitor now has the ability to filter out agent-generated queries from the Explorer and Profiler views, which rank queries to show the most-time-consuming, most-frequent, and similar.

On systems that are idle, the agent’s own queries tend to appear in the top 10 or so overall. This might be interesting the first time you see them, but most users quickly develop a desire to hide these queries because they’ve already reviewed them and determined they’re not actionable. Well, now you can hide those queries: just click the checkbox!

The GIF above shows the Profiler, and there’s a similar checkbox in the Explorer, just above the RESET/APPLY buttons:

Et voila! You’re now hiding queries that are known to be generated by the agents, helping you focus in on the queries that are interesting to examine in your MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and Redis servers.
