  3. 3.

  4. 4. ASH Analytics• ASH Analytics is available to install dynamically as a feature of the EM 12c to any 11g database.• T he diagnostic pack licensing is required for this feature, just like for AWR and AD D M reporting.http:/ / www.oracle.com/ technetwork/ oem/ pdf/ 511880.pdf
  5. 5. Similar Interface• ASH , (Active Session H istory) has been available to assist the D BA since 10g.• Allows the D BA to view information across multiple performance dimensions.• By Filtering, allows the D BA to view performance patterns and resource usage that wasn’t clearly displayed in the past. 5

  22. 22. Filtering with Load Maps• Choose Simple or Advanced Filtering Options.• Breakdown the filtering in the order that is pertinent to the question about performance for the snapshot you’re narrowed to.• Drilldown from any point in the loadmap to the process, wait event or resource usage. 22
  23. 23. Wait Event by SQL_ID in Hybrid 23
  24. 24. Wait Event by SQL_ID in OLAP 24
  25. 25. OLTP Load Map by Transaction_id 25
  26. 26. Real –Time ADDM andComparisonsIntroduced in EM12c, the ADDM comparison reportallows a DBA to compare a created snapshot intime to a second snapshot.• Time is not fixed, can be a different total of minutes, different days, compare anything in retained in the repository against one another.• The report notifies you of multiple impacting indicators, including percentage of compatibility of the comparisons and drilldown areas for both panes. 26

  28. 28. Run Comparison 28
  29. 29. Summary• ASH Analytics is the future of the “Top Activity” View in the Enterprise Manager.• The benefits are clear in regards to viewing, trouble-shooting and defining performance metrics, resource usage and issues.• The future holds many advanced performance metrics and features to be integrated into this new interface. 29
