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:
- Different database caches are tuned to service requests fast
- Servers have enough buffers to perform and sort operations in memory rather than on disk
- Database accesses are evenly distributed across the different datafiles, etc.
- Databases are tuned, through understanding of the behavior of applications using the database - e.g., whether queries are optimal, whether the locking behavior of the application is normal, and more
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?
- How many users are accessing the Oracle database currently?
- Who are the active users?
- What are the current top 10 SQL queries in terms of resource utilization?
- 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?
- 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?
- 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?
- 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?
- Generates proactive, real-time alerts based on hundreds of Oracle database statistics collected and analyzed in real-time
- Enables anytime, anywhere Oracle database monitoring and reporting of an IT infrastructure from any web browser
- Facilitates effective allocation of operations staff and optimization of Oracle database experts
- Offers integrated monitoring of the entire IT infrastructure including network, server, applications, and databases, and cross-correlation for bottleneck identification and analysis
