Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) is a data collection framework, driven from the command line, which can be used to gather diagnostic information related to Oracle products and their environments. This data is used to assist in problem diagnosis.

Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 8.14

  • Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 8.14 contains a remodeled and improved Coherence module, as well as improved collections for Oracle Identity Manager, Enterprise Manager 13c, and Business Intelligence.
  • The Health Check Validation Engine (HCVE) rulesets have been updated to incorporate the most recent HP patches, as well as to recognize Windows SBS2011. Complete details for this release are available in RDA Release Notes.
  • Enhancements and installation instructions for RDA 8.14 can be found in  RDA Release Notes (Doc ID 414970.1).
  • This release of RDA is bundled with the 2.11.30 release of Diagnostic Assistant (DA).  The DA tool is a command line interface framework designed to simplify and standardize the end user’s experience with various diagnostic tools, providing a common lightweight extensible interface to multiple collection tools (ADR, RDA, OCM, Explorer, etc) . DA packages can also work with Oracle applications (JDE EnterpriseOne, Siebel, PeopleSoft) as verifiers, providing a basic Java interface to facilitate the user’s data collection. For more information about DA functionalities, refer to Diagnostic Assistant: Information Center (Doc ID 201804.2)
