Oracle Monitoring with eG Enterprise

Stop Slow Performance at the Source

Oracle Database Management

In many infrastructures, a database server (or a cluster) supports multiple front-end servers. Consequently, a performance bottleneck or failure of a database server can impact the performance of a number of services that rely on it. Effective database management requires a great deal of expertise, and Oracle monitoring tools are critical for successful IT service delivery. eG Enterprise helps you ensure top performance for a consistent user experience, including:


eG Enterprise for Oracle Database Monitoring

eG Enterprise includes extensive monitoring capabilities for Oracle databases. A single eG monitoring agent is capable of monitoring all of the Oracle database instances being executed on a system. Monitoring of the Oracle database instances is performed non-intrusively, with administrators having the option of configuring whether the monitoring is to be performed in an agent-based or agentless manner.

eG Enterprise's 100% web-based architecture, allows geographically distributed Oracle database servers to be managed from a central manager. Administrators can view and analyze the performance of their Oracle database servers in real-time over the web. To avoid overwhelming the administrator with a ton of performance data, eG's Oracle monitor includes a specialized model for an Oracle database server. By viewing the layer model of an Oracle database server, an administrator can quickly determine which layer(s) of the database server is causing a problem.

What the eG's Oracle Database Monitoring Tools Reveal

Database service monitoring  
  • Is the Oracle database server available for servicing requests and what is the response time for a typical request?
Session monitoring
  • How many users are accessing the Oracle database currently?
  • Who are the active users?
Query monitoring
  • What are the current top 10 SQL queries in terms of resource utilization?
Transaction monitorings
  • What is the commit and rollback behavior of the applications using the Oracle database?
Alert log monitoring
  • Have there been any recent errors/events in the Oracle alert log? What are they?
Rollback segment monitoring
  • Is there heavy contention for the rollback segments?
Lock and latch monitoring
  • Is there contention for locks?
  • Is a specific application holding a lock for a long time? Which lock(s) are these?
Cache monitoring
  • Are the library cache, dictionary cache, and the data buffer cache adequately sized?
Full table scan monitoring
  • Is there any full table scan happening on the Oracle database server? If so, how frequently?
Tablespace monitoring
  • Are any of the tablespaces reaching their storage capacity?
  • Is the load adequately balanced across the tablespaces?
Hot file monitoring
  • Is the disk I/O (read/write) being balanced across the datafiles or is there a particular hot datafile that is handling all the requests?
Redo log monitoring
  • Is the Oracle redo-log buffer sufficiently sized, or is there a large number of requests waiting for redo log space?
Object monitoring
  • Is there any invalid object in the database? Which ones?
  • Which objects have been recently modified and when?
  • Are there objects that have reached their maximum extent? Which ones are these?
