The new ORAchk release 184.108.40.206.3 is now available to download.
ORAchk 220.127.116.11.3 now includes new support for both Linux on System Z and Oracle Enterprise Linux 7.
ORAchk now supports upgrade checks for 18.104.22.168, enabling you to do pre and post upgrade checking for Oracle Database 22.214.171.124 to avoid the most common upgrade problems.
ORAchk now supports ASM checks and patch recommendations for single instance databases as well as the already supported RAC instances.
ORAchk can now query details related to the OS resource consumption of different GoldenGate processes, identifying any components using excessive resources. It also identifies if GoldenGate is configured to avoid known performance problems.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent support has now been added to the existing support for Enterprise Manager Repository checks. The agent checks now appear in a new “Enterprise Manager” section of the report. With the new EM 12c Agent checks, you will quickly identify common EM Agent configuration mistakes that if undetected can result in poor performance or a failure to run the Agent process.
There are certain things ORAchk can only do a partial check for, where a complete check requires information outside the scope of the machine or that require other customer specific knowledge. These partially identified checks now appear in the new section marked “Findings needing further review”. If you review these checks and verify they are not problematic you can choose to exclude them in the same way as any other checks, see Document 1268927.2 for further details.
The ORAchk Health Score calculation has been improved with version 126.96.36.199.3. Certain INFO level checks, which only communicate best practice and do not confirm a problem in your environment, no longer deduct points from your health score. This means that if you follow the recommended advice for excluding any non relevant “Findings needing further review” then a health score of 100 is now obtainable.
