More and more applications demand a very high availability of the Oracle environment. This is partly because many applications work in the cloud and must be available 24×7. In order to guarantee this high availability, the Oracle environment must of course also be available to the maximum. By applying Oracle monitoring, potential problems can be identified and resolved in a timely manner.
Various Oracle monitoring solutions are available on the market to monitor the Oracle environment. These db monitor products can be divided into two categories, namely Oracle monitoring products and third-party database monitoring products.
Oracle monitoring products are:
Most commonly used third-party database monitoring products are:
Of the above products, Oracle Cloud Control is by far the most widely used product. Companies choose Cloud Control for the following reasons:
One of the most important features of a database server monitoring tool, such as Cloud Control, is sending notifications. Notifications from the database monitoring indicate that a potential problem may occur, for example a tablespace or a disk is almost full. Because the database server monitoring sends a notification, an incident can be prevented or resolved in time so that the continuity of the Oracle environment is not endangered. Even if a calamity occurs as a result of, for example, a power failure, a notification is sent by the database monitoring.
For companies that have an SLA with DBA.nl , the database server monitoring is set up in such a way that the notifications are also sent to DBA.nl. Depending on the SLA, notifications can also be sent in the evening and/or during the weekend, in addition to office hours. Notifications of the Oracle monitoring, during office hours, are handled by the Service Desk of DBA.nl. Notifications of the database monitoring that come in outside office hours are handled by the senior database consultant on duty, if this is part of the agreed service. Before concluding the SLA, it is often useful to have an Oracle health check performed.
DBA.nl offers on-the-job training for companies that would like to use Cloud Control as database monitoring, but do not have the knowledge in-house. In two days, an expert from DBA.nl together with the administrator(s) will perform the installation and configuration of the Oracle database server monitoring. In addition, the most important features are discussed so that your administrators can get the most out of Cloud Control’s database monitoring.
One of the customers who has chosen to use the training on-the-job service is the Municipality of Eindhoven. Oracle Cloud Control 12c was installed and configured for two days. The most important features were then discussed and documented with the two administrators.
