New Features in ORAchk 18.104.22.168.5
Create your own checks
Would you find it useful to easily run your own environment or business specific checks?
Now you can use ORAchk to write, execute and report on your own custom user defined checks.
- Use the Collection Manager interface to write your checks
- ORAchk’s built-in email notification and diff reporting
- View the results of your checks in the new “User Defined Checks” section in the ORAchk html report
- Collect and easily view all results enterprise wide using the ORAchk Collection Manager
Expanded Oracle Product Support
ORAchk 22.214.171.124.5 now brings wider and deeper support throughout the Oracle product stack, with newly added support for the following product areas:
- Oracle Identity Manager
- Oracle E-Business Suite Customer Relationship Management
- Oracle E-Business Suite Project Billing
- Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance
- Oracle Virtual Networking
- Oracle PeopleSoft Applications
- Application Continuity
Easily Run or Exclude Specific Individual Checks
New command line switches have been added so you can easily exclude or run only specific checks.
Shorter ORAchk Execution Time
ORAchk now has the ability to cache discovered databases, meaning database rediscovery is skipped and execution time is faster. If databases change you can simple issue one command to have ORAchk refresh the cache.
Support for Custom EBS APPS User
ORAchk will now dynamically determine the APPS user, enabling all EBS checks to be used even if you have changed the name of the APPS user.
See Document 1268927.2 for further details of the new product support.
