Summary of DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN Subprograms

Table 29-2 DBMS_XMLSTORE Package Subprograms

Method Description

DISABLE Procedures

Prevents AUTOTASK from executing any requests from a specified client or operation.

ENABLE Procedures

Allows a previously disabled client, operation, target type, or individual target to be enabled under AUTOTASK control

GET_CLIENT_ATTRIBUTES Procedure

Returns values of select client attributes

GET_P1_RESOURCES Procedure

Returns percent of resources allocated to each AUTOTASK High Priority Consumer Groups

OVERRIDE_PRIORITY Procedures

Manually overrides task priority.

SET_CLIENT_SERVICE Procedure

Associates an AUTOTASK Client with a specified Service

SET_P1_RESOURCES Procedure

Sets percentage-based resource allocation for each High Priority Consumer Group used by AUTOTASK Clients



DISABLE Procedures

This procedure prevents AUTOTASK from executing any requests from a specified client or operation.

Syntax

Disables all AUTOTASK functionality.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.DISABLE;

Disables all tasks for the client or operation.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.DISABLE (
   client_name       IN    VARCHAR2,
   operation         IN    VARCHAR2,
   window_name       IN    VARCHAR2);

Parameters

Table 29-3 DISABLE Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

client_name

Name of the client, as found in DBA_AUTOTASK_CLIENT View

operation

Name of the operation as specified in DBA_AUTOTASK_OPERATION View

window_name

Optional name of the window in which client is to be disabled


Usage Notes


ENABLE Procedures

This procedure allows a previously disabled client, operation, target type, or individual target to be enabled under AUTOTASK control. Specifying the DEFERRED option postpones the effect of the call until the start of the next maintenance window. If IMMEDIATE option is specified the effect of this call is immediate – as long as there is a currently open maintenance window.

Syntax

Re-enabling AUTOTASK. This version enables the specified client. Note that any explicitly disabled tasks or operations must be re-enabled individually.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.ENABLE;

Re-enabling a client or operation.Note that any explicitly disabled tasks or operations must be re-enabled individually.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.ENABLE (
   client_name       IN    VARCHAR2,
   operation         IN    VARCHAR2,
   window_name       IN    VARCHAR2);

Parameters

Table 29-4 ENABLE Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

client_name

Name of the client, as found in DBA_AUTOTASK_CLIENT View

operation

Name of the operation as specified in DBA_AUTOTASK_OPERATION View

window_name

Optional name of the window in which client is to be enabled


Usage Notes


GET_CLIENT_ATTRIBUTES Procedure

This procedure returns values of select client attributes.

Syntax

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.GET_CLIENT_ATTRIBUTES(
   client_name        IN    VARCHAR2,   service_name       OUT   VARCHAR2,   window_group       OUT   VARCHAR2);

Parameters

Table 29-5 GET_CLIENT_ATTRIBUTES Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

client_name

Name of the client, as found in DBA_AUTOTASK_CLIENT View

service_name

Service name for client, may be NULL

window_group

Name of the window group in which the client is active



GET_P1_RESOURCES Procedure

This procedure returns percent of resources allocated to each AUTOTASK High Priority Consumer Group.

Syntax

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.GET_P1_RESOURCES(
   stats_group_pct     OUT   NUMBER,
   seg_group_pct       OUT   NUMBER,
   tune_group_pct      OUT   NUMBER,
   health_group_pct    OUT   NUMBER);

Parameters

Table 29-6 GET_P1_RESOURCES Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

stats_group_pct

%resources for Statistics Gathering

seq_group_pct

%resources for Space Management

tune_group_pct

%resources for SQL Tuning

health_group_pct

%resources for Health Checks


Usage Notes

Values will add up to 100%.


OVERRIDE_PRIORITY Procedures

This procedure is used to manually override task priority. This can be done at the client, operation or individual task level. This priority assignment is honored during the next maintenance window in which the named client is active. Specifically, setting the priority to URGENT causes a high priority job to be generated at the start of the maintenance window. Setting priority to CLEAR removes the override.

Syntax

Override Priority for a Client.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.OVERRIDE_PRIORITY (
   client_name       IN    VARCHAR2,
   priority          IN    VARCHAR2);

Override Priority for an Operation.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.OVERRIDE_PRIORITY (
   client_name       IN    VARCHAR2,
   operation         IN    VARCHAR2,
   priority          IN    VARCHAR2);

Override Priority for a Task.

DBMS_AUTO_TASK_ADMIN.OVERRIDE_PRIORITY (
   client_name       IN    VARCHAR2,
   operation         IN    VARCHAR2,
   task_target_type  IN    VARCHAR2,
   task_target_name  IN    VARCHAR2,
   priority          IN    VARCHAR2);
