With this entry I like to handle exachk. Exachk is made available via MOS Doc Id. 1070954.1. The tool is designed to audit various important configuration settings
within an Oracle Database Machine Exadata System - Database Servers, Storage Servers and Infiniband Switches. It verifies key components of the Exadata Database Machine against supported version levels, recommended Oracle RAC settings and Exadata best practices. At the moment we support version 11gR2 for V2 & X2-2.
The tool is non-intrusive, when it completes it's collection and analysis it produces two reports, summary and detailed. If an SR needs to be logged the output can be supplied to Oracle for further analysis . The detailed report will contain Benefit/Impact, Risk and Action/Repair information. In many cases it will also reference publicly available documents with additional information about best practices and how to implement them.
For more and detailed information please see MOS Doc Id. 1070954.1
