zztat is an Oracle performance monitoring and reaction framework.

  • zztat doesn't just tell you that there is a problem. It can also automatically act!
  • zztat supports Oracle versions 11.2.0.4, 12.1 and 12.2
  • No additional Oracle licenses required
    • zztat runs on Standard Edition 1 and 2, as well as on Enterprise Edition
    • Diagnostics & Tuning pack licenses are not required
  • Built from the ground-up with security in mind
    • No connections to your production databases (in the default operation mode)
    • No agents (this also means there are no huge memory- and CPU-hogging processes running on your servers)
    • Only a single package resides in SYS (and that's optional, too!) - the entire framework runs as a normal unprivileged user
    • Limited access is used whenever possible (zztat follows the principle of least privilege at its core)
    • No ANY-privileges (one exception: CREATE ANY CONTEXT, since Oracle doesn't provide a CREATE CONTEXT privilege)
  • Fully customize-able and configurable
    • Add your own metrics, monitor them with your own gauges and react to them with your own reactions!

High Waits? Arrow.png Take diagnostics, produce a report and send an email!

Extreme Waits? Arrow.png Take a systemstate dump and send an alert!

Long blocking process? Arrow.png Kill it and send a notification.

If zztat alerts you, you no longer have to piece the puzzle back together yourself. All the data you need will already be right there, waiting for you.
