Ashish Agrawal
Director, Product Management

We’re pleased to announce support for external on-premises Oracle databases and hosts in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Operations Insights service, providing capacity planning and long-term SQL performance analysis for Oracle Database service. Operations Insights service helps optimize resource utilization and maximize database performance.

External on-premises Oracle databases

You can now manage and monitor Oracle databases outside of OCI, using OCI’s External Database service.

The new release of Operations Insights provides the following applications for external on-premises Oracle Databases.

  • Capacity Planning: Analyze and forecast external on-premises Oracle Database resource consumption using long-term historic data and machine learning. Optimize resource use by identifying and managing over and underutilized servers.

  • Oracle SQL Warehouse: Fleet-wide historical data store for high-impact SQL for external on-premises Oracle databases to get key insights into SQL performance degradation, execution plan histories, variation across fleet.

Use cases

  • Aggregate database CPU, storage, memory, IO utilization, and trends

  • Top databases by allocation, usage, and change %

  • Insights into current or forecast near-term CPU, storage, memory, and IO utilization issues

  • Fleet-wide distribution of CPU, storage, and memory allocated and used

  • Trend and forecast CPU, storage, memory, and IO utilization for specific databases
