As we have discussed before, it can be a challenge to quantify how well your database is meeting operational expectations and identify areas to improve performance. Database health checks are always important and the more critical your databases are they become even more important.
Oracle health check is now available as ORAchk version 22.214.171.124.1, with versioning aligned with and following the same format used by the Oracle 12c Database Patch Set Updates (PSUs), as always aiming in proactively scanning various layers of your stack.
In summary, ORAchk investigates and analyzes which known issues present a risk, generating high level reports that show your system health risks. It’s also now even easier to update ORAchk across multiple machines.aims to proactively scan for various layers of your stack.
New Features in 126.96.36.199.1 include easier to stay up to date, Windows Support, Role separation and execute as Root, Faster Results & Enhanced Comparison with lots of newlly added checks and Custom Naming of reports.

For those familiar with Oracle Application Express (aka APEX) - Oracle’s web-based application development tool, you probably now, that Oracle Application Express Listener is now known as Oracle REST Data Services.
The name change aims to emphasize the future direction, focusing on ways to easily expose Oracle Database and it’s suite of offerings to the RESTful Web, while still continuing to provide the PL/SQL Web Gateway that applications such as Oracle Application Express rely on, where using only a web browser, you can develop and deploy professional Web-based SQL and PL/SQL applications for desktops and mobile devices.

One of the new Database 12c features is the SQL Translation Framework. A key part of migrating non-Oracle databases to Oracle Database involves the conversion of non-Oracle SQL statements to SQL statements that are acceptable to Oracle Database. The conversion of the non-Oracle SQL statements of the applications is a manual and tedious process. To minimize the effort, or to eliminate the necessity for converting these statements, Oracle Database Release 12c introduces this new feature called SQL Translation Framework using which these SQL statements can be accepted from client applications and then can be translated at run-time before execution.
Although developed primarily to help customers migrate their 3rd party applications and databases to Oracle, by translating non-Oracle SQL statements, SQL Translation Framework can also be used to substitute an Oracle SQL statement with another Oracle statement to address a semantic or a performance issue, thus becoming an invaluable tool for application DBAs, who finally have the opportunity to substitute poorly performing SQL without the need change the application itself.[Read More]
