Oracle health check

At WellData, we have developed an excellent framework for providing cost effective, concise, thorough Oracle health checks.

Many customers use this service to help detect smaller issues, before they escalate into larger issues, whilst others use this service when they suspect database issues or experience problems.

The ultimate aim of any Oracle health check is to identify potential risks, which cover the availability, recoverability, performance and security of your Oracle database. As part of this, the health check investigates noncompliance, configuration issues and monitoring issues.

Each aspect is investigated and reported on, with a comprehensive analysis section being an important part of the health check. This section not only provides the results of the health check, but also the severity of the problems found and most importantly, the right course of remedial action. This plan of action can be implemented by our expert teams here at WellData, or your own teams in house.

Oracle database issues

At a general level, we are testing the performance, security and reliability of your database. These three elements are then graded accordingly into either Critical, Warning or Informational categories. We investigate many areas of database health during a check.

  • System Configuration
  • Backup & Maintenance
  • Resource Configuration
  • Oracle Performance

Health check results

Once all of these results are fully reported, and have been analysed – a summary is written which details the most important results, which can vary between minor recommendations to major overhauls and instant actions. Once you receive this report, a WellData analyst will be in touch to discuss the results and actions at a time convenient to you.

  • Critical
  • Warning
  • Informational

An Oracle database health check can be carried out on an ad hoc basis, or are included in our comprehensive database support contracts. If you have any questions about your Oracle database, and how you may benefit from one of our health checks – please do get in touch and we will be happy to help.
