Do's and Don'ts of Performance Monitoring

Do's and Don'ts of Performance Monitoring

18 May 2020,16:00 (BST)

Service Level Monitoring (SLM) for Oracle database may seem like a simple task, given the abundance of existing built-in and third-party tools. However, striking the right balance between monitoring too closely and risking adverse side effects, and monitoring too loosely and risking missing emerging threats, is not easy. And it’s not just about the level of granularity, number of metrics and setting up alerting thresholds. Many projects end up groping in the dark because they don’t have a clear idea what to monitor, how to separate strategic and tactical monitoring, etc.

In my presentation, I will talk about various aspects of Service Level Monitoring both database, cluster and OS levels for Oracle enterprise-grade database setups, and will share some of the tools that I developed for this purpose.
