Wait-Time Analysis

Definition - What does Wait-Time Analysis mean?

Wait-time analysis is a form of database performance tuning that focuses on reducing wait times for operations as much as possible. Wait-time analysis looks at the time it takes for a database to complete operations. With wait-time analysis, database administrators can see which operations are taking the most time and make appropriate adjustments.

Techopedia explains Wait-Time Analysis

Wait-time analysis is an approach to database administration that looks at how much time the database spends actually completing operations as opposed to resource optimization. With more websites becoming database-driven, reducing wait times can improve loading times for pages.

Microsoft, SAP and IBM’s SQL products all include wait-time analysis tools, referred to as “Wait Types” or “Wait Events.” These can track input/output operations, buffer operations and waiting on locks to be released. Database administrators can then make optimization decisions based on the bottlenecks they find with wait-time analysis.
