The core of virtually every application that manipulates data is the database. It is vitally important, in both production and development environments, to understand at all times what the database is doing and why. There are a variety of commercial database monitoring solutions available in the market today; most rely on SQL monitoring and monitoring of the Oracle Alert Log. Few provide customizable search capabilities or allow easy correlation of events recorded in different files, within the database, from script output, from TCP feeds, or allow a DBA to correlate database events with events from other applications in the technology stack. In this paper I will describe a robust monitoring architecture that allows in-depth, real-time log file analysis and reporting of an individual Oracle database for virtually no cost.
