Data-driven Oracle DB performance tuning

For many of our enterprise customers Oracle databases are the lifeblood of their business. These engines usually drive critical online transaction (OLTP) and online analytics (OLAP) processing. Therefore, keeping an eye on the overall database health and proactively looking for potential bottlenecks saves time and effort to our customers, as well as increases the net value of their Oracle solutions.

By following this database performance checklist you can easily find issues and optimize your Oracle database accordingly:

See response times, failure rates, and database-activity breakdowns of Oracle databases

Server data tells about your hosts’ health

By checking CPU, memory, and disk space metrics you make sure your Oracle DB processes have sufficient resources available.

Know which commands affect database performance

Knowing which services access your Oracle DB is vital for finding database performance bottlenecks. If there is a single service that’s suffering from bad database response times, dig deeper into that service’s metrics to find out what’s causing the problem.

Take a deeper look into the service’s communication with the database and find out which commands affect the database performance the most.

See all Oracle Database statements, their execution times, total times, and response times.

Verify your app’s database connection

Even if the way you query your database is perfectly fine, you may still experience inferior database performance. Make sure if your application’s database connection is correctly sized.

Keep an eye on network metrics

If a database performance issue suddenly appears, process level visibility comes in handy in identifying a failing component.
