GroundWork Monitor Professional offers unparalleled extensibility to measure a variety of different parameters to gauge the performance and availability of Oracle databases, including cache utilisation levels, number of user sessions, table capacity, and resource allocation. In addition, comprehensive graphs of active processes and sessions provide historical trend information allowing administrators to rapidly diagnose and solve problems.
âFrequently, the limiting factor in overall application performance is the database itself,â says Tony Barbagallo, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at GroundWork Open Source. âEnsuring the optimal performance of all types of databases, including Oracle, is an integral part of any business-critical IT management solution. The big difference is that GroundWorkâs offering does the job for a fraction of the cost of closed-source enterprise solutions like HP OpenView.â
GroundWork tapped into the expertise of the system administrator community at large and specifically with DSP, a UK-based Oracle and GroundWork reseller, to identify and codify the most important best practices for monitoring and managing Oracle databases. And the extensible open architecture GroundWork Monitor Professional allows for the easy addition of other measurement parameters to suit the unique requirements of the widest range of applications.
âGroundWork Monitor Professional will dramatically help users of Oracle databases manage their enterprise applications far more effectively and efficiently than before,â said Simon Brooks, Operations Director at UK Oracle reseller specialist DSP. âWe are delighted to have worked closely with GroundWork to help deliver this solution, and we see a huge demand for business-critical open source solutions for our Oracle users.â
