An alert indicates that an issues has occurred somewhere in you application. For example, if the execution time of a query is more than 25 seconds, an alert might be triggered to indicate that this issue is occuring in your application. Alert have the following severity levels:

  • Low
  • Medium - indicates a potential problem or a current problem that is not serious. For example, a Medium alert will be generated if the execution time of a query is more than 15 seconds. It is recommended to investigate and solve a medium alert to prevent the underlying issue from becoming critical.
  • High - usually indicates a (serious) problem, such as a long running query that may exceed the connection timeout.

The Telerik Data Access Profiler can detect the following types of problems:

  • Long Running Query - a long running query.
  • Select N+1 Problem - a data access anti-pattern where the database is accessed in a suboptimal way. Detecting Select N+1 problem usually means that the data fetch strategy of the application can be optimized.
  • Too Many Records Fetched - indicates that a query fetched more records than usual. Such queries might take long time to execute, decreasing the performance of your application.
  • Runtime Exception - indicates that an exception has occurred in your application.
  • Client-side LINQ Query - queries that are not completely executed on the database server, i.e. they are not completely translated to SQL, but part of them is executed on the client-side using Linq to Objects.

  • Severity - the severity level of the problem.
  • Alert - the type of the alert.
  • Timestamp - shows the time when the problem is detected.
  • Value - displays a value related to the problem. For example, this might be the duration of a long running query.
