General database maintenance and performance monitoring are important Oracle DBA tasks. Proactive and reactive database maintenance is made easy by the sophisticated infrastructure of Oracle Database 12c, including elements such as Automatic Workload Repository (AWR), ADDM, ASMM, and database alerts. DBAs must make sure that databases are open and available to users when they need it and that it is working without bottlenecks by gathering performance metrics. This course discusses how to use Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to monitor performance, and how to use AMM, ADDM, and the different advisors to obtain necessary information to accurately performance tune the instance.
