Hi,

Am new here. Not sure if this question should be posted here.

Would like to know if OEM Cloud Control 13c has a graph or some kind of information that shows memory usage and the possible need to increase SGA in a clear and straightforward way.

That I know of, if using ASMM, all memory allocated to SGA is in use, distributed between the pools and caches by the Automatic Shared Memory manager. So, there is no sense in looking for free memory. To determine if SGA needs to be increased I should interpret AWR reports, cache hit ratios and use the advisors.


Thanks

The AWR report does include the memory advisors. If you post one here, with your interpretation of them, we can have a look.

I wouldn't worry about cache hit ratios, they are a very twentieth century concept.

Hi, John,


Will read what you suggested. Thanks.

About the AWR interpretation, that is not really the issue. I was really wanting to know if there would be something in the OEM pages that would give the same information as Advisors or the AWR reports in a more straightforward manner. I have been searching all around in OEM but all I found was the Advisors and the AWR reports.


Thanks

I cannot envisage anything more straightforward than the Advisors, as presented in a AWR report. When you look at them, always remember that you cannot tune an application just by following an Advisor. You have to begin by asking your users what problems they are facing in the application. For example, is a screen refresh too slow? Or a report taking too long? They will not be complaining that some memory allocations are inappropriate.

Hi, John,

Thanks again for you reply. Was really wanting to confirm my point of view and see if I was not missing something out in OEM. I was asked if there would be this information about memory in OEM in a graph or panel, that would pinpoint whatever issues there could ever be related to memory usage. But, all I knew of was what I look up in AWR and advisors.

Yes, environment tuning is not just a matter of applying whatever the Advisors say. Application analysis should be considered as one of the most important, if not the most important issue.
