Swat 3.02 has been moved to My Oracle Support (MOS)

As of February 15 the link to MOS in this blog entry has changed!

Swat 3.02 has been moved to My Oracle Support (MOS) and is available for download for properly licensed Oracle customers from here. Swat is now only distributed as a zip file but contains everything needed for both Unix or Windows systems.

You will need to have a valid MOS logon ID. You can also just go to MOS and request patch 10350687.

November 2013: An update: when I made Swat 302 available I put a five year expiration date on, fully expecting a new version to be available by then. And then Sun became Oracle, and a decision was made to no longer offer external support for Swat or make new versions available.

This now will cause Swat302 to expire on 'Thu Feb 13 14:45:12 MST 2014', warning messages will show up three months before that.

To work around this, download https://blogs.oracle.com/henk/resource/fixes/dont_expire_swat302.zip,  place it in the swat302 directory, and unzip. You should now have a new /swat302/classes/Swt/ directory. This will eliminate the expiration check.

Swat is only available for Oracle customers. You need to provide your valid customer contract number.

Hi, Henk

I’m forestfrom China, and a refresh man to study vdbench tool.
I install solaris 10 u6 x86,
Login as root.
copy vdbench zip file to solaris desktop, extract it.
#cd VDBench501
Run #./VDBENCH –t
But show error below:
Exception in thread “main ” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Vdb/Vdbmain
Also I try with open solaris 137, also same error.
I’m not sure why error occurred? Or java env vary setup error? Could you kindly help to give some advice? Thanks!

Hi Henk

This is a very good new and I was able to download Swat and run it now.

I have something strange on one of my machines (Linux), sometimes, I get some negative values for access time and queue depth (IOPS is ok), so it spoils the graphic because of the scale...

Is there a way to delete one or more values in the data file so that I can solve this?

Did you have ever seen this problem?

Thank you for this great tool!

Gilles

As per articles I've read, SWAT is SAN agnostic and IOSTAT files can be imported.

We have a contract with Oracle but it must not be the right kind (SWAT is classified as Operating System Software) which is unfortunate as I'd like to be able to easier analyze IOSTAT data from system load tests without having to rely on other teams.

Sigh...so much for a free tool. I guess I found out about it too late.
