The Real Value of Oracle Health Checks
There’s no such thing as a self-driving database. If you expect your Oracle databases to perform consistently at high levels, you need to have a maintenance program. The first part of that program is an assessment.
Presenter Megan Elphingstone, Senior Oracle DBA for Datavail will show the audience how Datavail has developed a proven method of running Oracle Health Checks. Participants in this webinar will:
- Learn how assessments will help keep their environment stable, ahead of problems before they start, and prepare them for upgrades
- Learn how often to run an assessment and how to interpret the results
Below is a preview of the webinar transcript.
Here is my agenda for today. Why should I run a health check, also known as a database assessment? What should the assessment cover? What specific things should I be looking at? How often should I run a health check and does it matter if my database is new or old, OLTP vs a warehouse, or a combo of both?
Then, I will talk about how to run a health check because there are a lot of options out there. I’ll cover four different health check methods. Some are free, some will cost you some money, some make sense to combine together. Lastly, I’ll cover some of the results you will see and what you can do with that information.
Why should you run a health check? The first thing that comes to mind is the obvious reason. You have a problem that you need to fix. Users may be complaining or maybe you’ve encountered a bug. You could be in a situation where you’ve entered an SR with Oracle and they have already asked you to run and upload the ORAchk, which is one of the health checks I will talk about. Or, maybe you were troubleshooting something on your own and you need more info on where to start with a problem.
