The graphical interface will provide you with a global view of the databases managed on your SQL server.

Optimisez vos tables et requêtes en récupérant les logs de SQL Privé | OVHcloud

Optimise your tables and queries by retrieving logs from Private SQL

A query that takes too long to close can block other queries, which in turn increases your database’s overall response time. Logs can be used to identify slow queries, and optimise your tables and requests. This means you will avoid getting a "too many connections" error, which is common when connections to your database have not closed properly and start to accumulate.

Your questions answered

What is an SQL database?

A database is a set of structured information that facilitates the collection, management, consultation and updating of data. To administer a database, you can use DBMS/RDBMS (relational database management system) software. You can use it to perform SQL (Structured Query Language) queries to search, modify, add and delete data from your SQL DB.

Example of an SQL query to view database information: SELECT name FROM client

Example of an SQL query to create a new table: CREATE TABLE table_name
