Oracle monitoring: Benefit from optimal Oracle database monitoring with PRTG

SQL databases, such as those by Oracle, administer important business-related information. They play a crucial role in the work processes, communication, and interaction of a company. Continuous monitoring is therefore a must. Hardware errors, too little disk space, too little memory, faulty configurations, and corrupt databases can lead to downtime and interruptions in workflows.

That script you whipped together may have worked in the beginning, but as your database grows, the script quickly reaches its limit. It may be time to get started with PRTG Oracle monitoring.

Paessler’s powerful network monitoring software monitors the availability and performance of databases, and warns you when data query issues arise.


Thanks to PRTG, everyone will work with peace of mind

 i How PRTG defines sensors

In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.

PRTG comes with a pre-configured Oracle database sensor just for Oracle monitoring. This Oracle Sensor verifies that your database is running properly and if and how quickly queries are being processed. If an error occurs, you'll be informed at once. And that makes the network troubleshooting process all that much easier.

PRTG lets you detect and fix database errors before customers know something is wrong.

But that’s not all: The Oracle Sensor will notify you when your online store’s stock begins to dwindle or if support tickets start to pile up. Only by monitoring your databases constantly and professionally can you react to problems immediately and define values to trigger automatic follow-up processes. PRTG Oracle monitoring takes the pressure off admins, optimizes workflows, and provides for increased security.

How Oracle monitoring with PRTG works

Our software verifies that your Oracle SQL database is running properly and if queries are being processed with sufficient speed. If an error occurs, you'll be informed at once by the customizable alarm system of PRTG. You can choose from several different notifications: email, text, instant message, ringtone, or custom alert.

PRTG Oracle monitoring features sensors which monitor databases from the user’s perspective. These sensors look directly into databases by querying database servers and recording the corresponding values, thereby measuring the time it takes for queries and their execution.
