Why Database Audit is Important

Database API Migration Services

Here are some of the reasons why you should make database auditing a priority:

  • Poor database performance.
  • Frequent breakdowns and locks of database objects.
  • Increasing database maintenance costs.
  • Optimization of business processes.
  • A long gap since the previous database audit.

Database Audit Process

Database audit stages

The audit is carried out by Ispirer experts with deep expertise in the relevant database management system. During the process, our experts use scripts, tools and database optimization best practices that have been developed based on the previous audits.

The client needs to provide system administrator access to the database, as well as access to the database server.

Audit duration depends on the size of the database, the number of objects and their complexity.

1. Project plan development

  • Gathering customer requirements and expectations.
  • Communicating with users and database administrators.
  • Obtaining and configuring access to all the necessary system components.

2. Server and infrastructure performance audit

  • Server configuration check-up.
  • Operating systems configuration check-up.
  • Infrastructure configuration analysis.
  • Resource (CP, RAM, etc.) load check-up.
  • Server configuration compliance with database vendor recommendations.

3. Security audit

  • Permissions and access rights check-up.
  • Collection of information about user accounts, roles and their database permissions.
  • Analysis of the system configuration and its implications for data security.

4. Performance audit

  • Database traffic and operations analysis, system bottlenecks detection.
  • Database objects analysis.
  • System response time check-up; locks and deadlocks analysis.
  • Resource load check-up in operation.
  • Review of queries and procedures history.
  • Review of indexes.
  • Code review of problem areas.

5. Final report

Generation of a report containing a list of identified issues along with the recommendations on how to fix them.

Main report items:

  • List of the checks performed at each stage of the audit.
  • List of issues identified at each stage of the audit.
  • Recommendations and best practices to resolve the major issues.
  • Indication of the most critical issues.

Database Audit Outcomes

What Our Customers Say

"We have found the tool to be powerful, and robust, which has facilitated the smooth conversion of one of our core systems from Informix 7.3.1 running on a Sun Unix enviroment to an enviroment running Windows Server 2008 SQL Server 2008."

"We have found the Ispirer team to be knowledgeable and responsive and we have found the tooling to be flexible enough to be easily adapted to our coding conventions."

"We found the SQLWays product and the Ispirer Systems support staff to be an enormous asset and an exceptional value to our migration team. The interface with the entire Ispirer organization was seamless and extremely efficient."

"We were thrilled when we found out that the migration could be performed only in a few months taking into account the large amount of data that need to be converted and our specific requirements."

"At the onset of the engagement the Ispirer MnMTK was expanded to meet the specific requirements of our migration prior to being delivered for our use. Once this phase of the project was complete we were provided with the expanded toolkit."

"Ispirer MnMTK was crucial to the successful completion of our database conversion project. We had tried several different strategies and tools previously and none of them compared to Ispirer MnMTK. It was definitely money well spent."

"The Ispirer team turned out to be very responsive, our customization requests were processed very quickly.Thanks to the tool, the only thing left to do was to fix 2 or 3 statements that were not automated during the migration process."

"Because of Ispirer and MnMTK, our team was able to devote its time to build the infrastructure for new Java programs instead of spending time on converting code. The produced Java code met all our maintainability, readability and performance requirements."
