For DB monitoring critical metrics is - read/write, latency, wait times, queries. 

You must have the possibility for metric correlation with your IT infrastructure (virtualization, storage source systems, servers). 

Best DB monitoring and troubleshooting tools for me - Solarwinds Database Performance Monitor.
