3 Best Practices for Good Oracle EBS Hygiene

Author: Mahesh Vanapalli | | May 23, 2019

Everyone knows that you should brush your teeth in the morning – but good hygiene practices don’t stop once you get to work. “Data hygiene” is the task of ensuring that your enterprise data always remains clean, accurate, high-quality, and up-to-date.

As a highly robust, complex system, Oracle E-Business Suite needs regular proactive maintenance to keep it running at peak performance, including good data hygiene practices. In this article, we’ll give a quick overview of 3 best practices for data hygiene that will reduce potential issues and errors in Oracle EBS.

1. Tablespace usage

In an Oracle database, a tablespace is a storage unit that contains the actual data of a database object. Tablespaces are the first level of abstraction on top of the physical database hardware.

Monitoring your tablespace usage is a crucial task for Oracle DBAs that should be perfomed frequently.

2. Invalid objects and indexes

When you make changes to your Oracle environment, there’s a chance that some database objects will become invalid as a result.

You can detect invalid objects and indexes in Oracle EBS by running a script or by using the Oracle E-Business Suite Invalid Object Utility. This maintenance should be performed every time that you make changes to an Oracle table, object, or index. Once detected, invalid objects can be fixed by recompiling them.

3. Service component status

Besides the status of an Oracle database, you also need to check whether all the components are up and working properly for the application to function as needed by the business.

To name a few important checks: concurrent manager status, pending requests status, and workflow notification mailer service status.
