An autonomous database with a built-in data collection infrastructure, Oracle Database utilizes a licensed feature called the Automatic Workload Repository (AWR). Given the widespread use of Oracle databases and their importance in supporting business operations, it's essential to use a dedicated tool for Oracle monitoring to monitor the performance of these databases and reduce business downtimes.
Organizations should employ an Oracle monitoring software that enables them to:
ManageEngine Applications Manager's Oracle monitor offers multidimensional, out-of-the-box Oracle monitoring, prompt alerting, and insightful reports. Because of its numerous features, Database Performance Analyzer for oracle by Applications Manager is a powerful Oracle DB performance monitoring tool used by thousands of IT admins.
Given its complexity, Oracle database monitoring is often both challenging and time-consuming, and important parameters can easily slip through the cracks. With an effective Oracle monitoring software, it's easy to track the performance of various facets of Oracle database, especially metrics related to tablespaces, sessions, SGAs, datafiles, and disk I/O.
Applications Manager's Oracle performance monitoring capability tracks the usage and growth of your Oracle tablespace and helps you ensure proper provisioning of tables. Utilize Applications Manager Oracle monitoring tool to monitor the performance and status of tablespaces by keeping an eye on important metrics like allocated bytes, allocated blocks, percent of used and free bytes, free blocks, read/write data, datafiles' details and more.

Oracle ASM manages the underlying disk storage; it acts as an interface between the Oracle instance and storage devices that contain the actual data. It simplifies the administration of Oracle related files by evenly distributing individual disks and files into disk groups. With Applications Manager's Oracle performance monitor, you can view ASM statistics graphically, with full drill-down capability to the ASM disk group and ASM disk level.

Oracle Scheduler allows you to design schedules and run programs on designated schedules. While most Oracle server monitoring tools offer surface-level metrics about database health and availability, Applications Manager's Oracle monitoring tracks the performance and status of numerous other metrics, such as Oracle jobs and backup jobs. Information about the status of jobs, last run status, last run duration, run count, and failure count can reveal a lot about your Oracle database's efficiency.

In order to effectively set up a stable data protection system, it's important to understand your recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) needs. An ideal tool like Applications Manager's Oracle monitoring allows you to monitor the log details (alert and redo logs).
Monitor alert logs
When your database encounters an issue, it's important to examine your alert logs. During alert log monitoring, it's critical to filter the warning logs from the actual error logs. Database Performance Analyzer for Oracle by Applications Manager collects these logs and classifies them into severe, critical, important, and normal alerts for effective monitoring. It also provides granular details about the logs, such as message level, record ID, originating time, host address, and message text.
In most cases, slow latency is the result of queries or locks. By monitoring queries and locks, you can drill down and isolate the SQL statements and locks consuming significant time. You can also monitor custom queries with Applications Manager Database Query monitoring.

Applications Manager's Oracle application monitoring capability provides you with a highly functional fault management system that includes a Root Cause Analyser, which allows you to identify the source of the faults and resolve issues faster. You can set thresholds for various Oracle performance attributes and receive alerts immediately upon violation. By setting up Anomaly Profiles, you can recognize gradual degradation in performance and prevent it from going downhill by resolving issues before they become potential threats.
View graphs and historical performance for all Oracle database attributes. With trend analysis reports, you can analyze performance trends with increased precision. Using Applications Manager's Oracle performance monitor, you'll make informed decisions with forecast reports, which perform predictive analysis by using machine learning techniques.
Applications Manager is more than just an Oracle DB monitoring tool; it also offers comprehensive monitoring for the following databases:
