With just a few clicks, you can set up your mission-critical alarms and notifications for Oracle Databases using the (OCI) Database Management service.
You don’t have to wait on IT or be a monitoring expert because you can now easily adopt and use Oracle-recommended alarms using a standardized set of rules, thresholds, and conditions, to monitor your databases. Using Oracle recommended alarm and notification configurations you can check for adherence to database best practices and detect potential issues and deviations from recommended (gold standard) configurations. Using this functionality also provides proactive monitoring to ensure that databases are operating efficiently, securely, and in alignment with Oracle Database monitoring best practices.
These capabilities in the OCI Database Management service make what was once a manual process now a breeze:
In the OCI console, navigate to Observability & Management, Database Management, and on the Fleet summary page, click the name of your database to go to the Managed database details page. You can find Alarm definitions listed in the Resources section under Administration.
The alarm definitions feature eases the process of creating and managing alarms to monitor Oracle Databases. It enables you to create Oracle-recommended alarms by making use of the standardized set of rules and thresholds, across multiple databases.
