How can I use the SilkPerformer Performance Explorer to monitor an Oracle 10g Database?

SilkPerformer's Performance Explorer can be used to retrieve "v$systate" monitoring data from an Oracle 10g Database. This enables you to track various aspects of the Database"s Performance in Real-Time, which can help facilitate the identification of bottlenecks.

There are three prerequisites which need to be fulfilled in order to be able to monitor an Oracle 10G Database via the v$systate" table

  1. An Oracle client is installed on the same machine as the SilkPerformer Performance Explorer.
  2. You can successfully query the "v$systat" table from outside of Performance Explorer. This can be verified by using the SQLPlus executable provided by the Oracle client.
  3. You have a valid SilkPerformer SAM license.

To configure Performance Explorer to Monitor the "v$systate" measures on an Oracle 10g database, use the following steps:

1. Select "Monitor Server from the Performance Explorer toolbar

2. Choose "Select from Predefined Data Sources" in the Data Source Wizard

3. Select: Database System > Oracle (v$systate) > System Statistics (v$systate)

4. Enter the Hostname of machine Database resides on.

5. Provide Connection String, Username and Password required to connect to Oracle Databases's Table and retrieve System Statistics:

6. Select from the available System Statistics; those values that you wish to Monitor and save to tsd format:

7. Click Finish to complete configuration; a Monitor Graph will be generated in Performance Explorer, displaying real-time values provided by Oracle Database:
