ORAchk New Version 12.1.0.2.1

The new ORAchk release 12.1.0.2.1 is now available to download.

Easier to stay up to date with the most current version of ORAchk

ORAchk release versioning now aligns with and follows the same format used by the Oracle 12c Database Patch Set Updates (PSUs); this version is 12.1.0.2.1, the next will be 12.1.0.2.2.
It’s also now even easier to update ORAchk across multiple machines.
  1. Download the latest release of orachk.zip into a shared network staging directory
  2. Set the environment variable $RAT_UPGRADE_LOC to the staging directory
  3. The next time ORAchk is run it will prompt you to auto update

New ORAchk Support for Windows

ORAchk is now supported on Windows when run within a Cygwin environment. Instructions for configuring Cygwin can be found from Document 1268927.2. ORAchk now includes hundreds of database and application checks which will run on Windows. There are even more Windows specific checks in the pipeline.

Easier execution for environments with role separation

You no longer need to have different users execute different ORAchk profiles to workaround your company’s implementation of role separation. ORAchk can now be run once as root to execute all checks. Prior to executing checks that do not require root access, ORAchk will switch user to the lower level accounts.

Faster execution time

When running against multiple databases, ORAchk can now run database checks in parallel meaning it takes a fraction of the time to complete execution. Parallel database execution is now the default. It can be turned off, if you prefer to run checks serially.

Enhanced comparison of result output

Quickly find out what has changed on your system between two ORAchk runs. When ORAchk is run with the –diff command it will now not only compare check results but collection data too. Quickly compare and understand differences in kernel parameters or database initialization parameters.

Over 70 new EBS checks

ORAchk support for EBS has been enriched and broadened, with even more checks for Oracle Payables (R12) and Oracle Workflow and now with release 12.1.0.2.1 introduces new support for Oracle Order Management (R12) and Oracle Process Manufacturing (R12).

For more details and to download the latest release of ORAchk see Document 1268927.2

ORAchk Health Checks for the Oracle Stack

ORAchk includes EXAchk’s functionality and replaces the popular RACcheck tool, extending the coverage based on prioritization of top issues reported by users, to proactively scan for known problems within:

  • E-Business Suite Financials Accounts Payables
  • Oracle Database
  • Sun Systems

ORAchk features:

  • Proactively scans for the most impactful known problems across your entire Engineered System as well as various layers of your stack
  • Simplifies and streamlines how to investigate and analyze which known issues present a risk to you
  • Lightweight tool runs within your environment; no data will be sent to Oracle
  • High level reports show your system health risks with the ability to drill down into specific problems and understand their resolutions
  • Can be configured to send email notifications when it detects problems
  • Collection Manager, a companion Application Express web app, provides a single dashboard view of collections across your entire enterprise

ORAchk will expand in the future with more high impact checks in existing and additional product areas. If you have particular checks or product areas you would like to see covered, please post suggestions in the ORAchk community thread accessed from the support tab on the below document.

For more details about ORAchk see Document 1268927.1

Master Note of Linux OS Requirements for Database Server

For the most current information, please refer to :
(Doc ID 851598.1) Master Note of Linux OS Requirements for Database Server



APPLIES TO:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 9.2.0.1 and later
Oracle Database - Standard Edition - Version 9.2.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64
Linux Itanium
IBM: Linux on System z
Linux x86
Generic Linux
IBM: Linux on POWER Systems

PURPOSE

This Master Note is intended to provide an index and references to the most frequently used My Oracle Support  articles with respect to Linux OS Requirements for Oracle Database Software Installation.

The vast majority of software installation and relinking problems on Linux are caused by missing OS requirements.

If you are encountering a software installation or relinking problem, it is vital that you ensure your OS meets all of the minimum requirements documented in the appropriate article below before creating a new SR.

SCOPE

Only Linux articles are referenced in this article.  For an "all-in-one" article that covers OS requirements for most major OS platforms, please refer to...

Document 169706.1  Oracle Database ... Installation and Configuration Requirements Quick Reference

Where a My Oracle Support article for a given version/platform is "Not available", you should refer to the Installation Guide and the article referenced above.
