The PATROL for Oracle Database solutions contains knowledge in the form of scripts, parameters, and recovery actions. This knowledge is used by PATROL to monitor, analyze, and manage an Oracle installation.

The PATROL for Oracle Database monitors the following elements of your Oracle installation:

  • Oracle instance
  • resource availability and capacity
  • archive log activity
  • instance performance and health of the environment
  • Oracle server options
  • replication and Oracle jobs
  • ETSM
  • users
  • Oracle Net


For consistency, the term Oracle Net is used throughout this book and refers to all Oracle Networking product versions.

  • local and remote monitoring
  • Real Application Cluster monitoring
  • failover and Cluster Monitoring Scenarios
  • Automatic Storage Management
  • DataGuard failover monitoring
  • XML Log monitoring

The PATROL for Oracle Database also enables you to perform Oracle functions directly from the PATROL console. In addition, the PATROL for Oracle Database allows you to view the state of instances and parameters through HTML pages on a web server.

The ORACLE application (its icon is shown below) enables you to perform high-level functions such as instance configuration, blackout, HTML reporting, and debugging. This application also enables instance configuration, instance discovery, and instance status. 


The menu command (PCO) of HTML reporting no longer exists in PATROL for Oracle Database 9.7.11 version and above.
