What is a health check in RDA?
A health check
evaluates something in your environment to determine whether a change
needs to be considered in order to avoid a problem or optimize
fuctionality. Examples of what this 'something' might be are:
- Configuration Parameters
- JVM Options
- Runtime Statistics
What have we done for SOA?
the latest release of RDA, 4.30, we have added a Rule Set for SOA
called 'Oracle SOA 11g (11.1.1) Post Installation (Generic)'. This Rule
Set contains 14 SOA related health checks.
These checks were all
derived from common issues / solutions we see in support of the SOA
product. Many of the recommendations come from the product documentation
while others are covered in the SOA Knowledge Base. Our goal is that
you will be able to easily identify the areas of concern and understand
the guidance available from the output of the Rule Set.
Running the health checks for SOA
rules that the checks use are installed with RDA and bundled by product
or functional area into what are called 'Rule Sets'. To view the
available Rule Sets simply run the command from the RDA home location:
rda.cmd (or .sh) -dT hcve
will bring up a list of the available HCVE (Health Check / Verification
Engine) Rule Sets. Each Rule Set contains a group of related rules that
are used for evalutation and display of results. A rule can be
considered synonymous with a single health check and they are assigned
an ID, Name and Description that can be seen when they are executed. The
Rule Set for SOA is option number 11 and you just enter this selection
at the prompt. The Rule Set will then execute to completion. After
running an HCVE Rule Set the tool will write the output to the
RDA_HOME/output folder. The simplest way to view the output is to drag
the .htm file to a browser but of course it can also be uploaded to a
Service Request for evaluation by Oracle Support. Read the full article here.
