Discover and monitor database components with less effort using OCI Database Management

In addition to Database Management’s comprehensive database performance diagnostics and management capabilities for Oracle Databases, Database Management now supports the monitoring of components that comprise Oracle Database systems! Database administrators can use Database Management to discover Oracle database systems located on premises (External Database Systems) and monitor the entire ecosystem. These capabilities greatly reduce the effort required to discover the components separately.

Use Database Management to discover the following components as a single resource using the Oracle database system resource-type:

  • Clusters
  • Databases
  • ASM
  • Listeners

Database Management provides a single-pane-of-glass view of the components and helps identify availability and performance issues before they impact the database.

Find performance issues faster with new Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database Management service features

The new feature enhancements for Database Management (DBM) service in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) help rectify degrading performance trends before they become larger issues.

Database groups combine database resources – in the cloud or in a data center – to track the top trending databases across CPU, memory, or throughput usage to efficiently triage at-risk environments. Once a database has been identified as declining in overall performance, the Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor (ADDM) can be invoked to assist in identifying the root cause of the degradation.
