MAA has recently published a new whitepaper documenting an end to end approach to health and resource utilization monitoring for Oracle Exadata Environments. In an addition to technical details a troubleshooting methodology will be explored that allows administrators to quickly identify and correct issues in an expeditious manner.
The document takes a “rule out” approach in that components of the system will be verified as performing correctly to eliminate its role in the incident. There will be five areas of concentration in the overall system diagnosis
1. Steps to take before problems occur that can assist in troubleshooting
2. Changes made to the system
3. Quick analysis
4. Baseline comparison
5. Advanced diagnostics
