Oracle Table space management made easy
ManageEngine Applications Manager provides indepth Oracle Tablespace monitoring in addition to overall Oracle Performance Monitoring. Oracle tablespaces are the logical database structures that hold data for an Oracle Database. Each tablespace points to data files where the data is physically stored. An Oracle table space can consist of indices, tables, and other database objects. It is hence important for the database administrator to perform tablespace monitoring.

The Oracle DBA needs to monitor whether the tablespace is full and whether they need to take action to increase the capacity. There are various ways to increase capacity like add a datafile (after monitoring datafiles) to a tablespace, add a new tablespace or even by increasing the size of existing datafiles in a tablespace. Using the ManageEngine Applications Manager Oracle tablespace monitoring capability, a DBA can monitor tablespace growth in real time and can setup alarms if thresholds are violated.
