Instana Integration

DBmarlin can link to Instana so that you can related database performance back to the infrastructure, applications, services and users.

Enable the integration

To enable the integration just requires a Name (any identifier such as 'Instana prod' or 'Instana test') and your Instana API key and Instana host.

Linking from DBmarlin to Instana

DBmarlin UI makes background API calls to Instana to determine if a database instance or the databases running within it are monitored by Instana and if so it will display a button.
