SuperCluster Tools

In addition to the full compliment of Oracle Solaris OS and Oracle Database software features, SuperCluster provides additional tools and utilities that help you manage the system.

The Python programming language is used to create SuperCluster-specific utilities such as the SuperCluster Virtual Assistant. The SuperCluster 2020 Q2 Quarterly Patch Update (SuperCluster software version or later) provides utilities that are based on Python 3. Prior to the 2020 Q2 update, the utilities were developed using Python 2. To determine your software version, see Identify the SuperCluster Software Version.

This table lists the additional tools and utilities.

SuperCluster Virtual Assistant (Formerly call the Oracle I/O Domain Creation tool)
Enables you to create I/O domains on demand, assigning CPU, memory and I/O resources of your choice.
Enables you to change how CPU and memory resources are allocated across domains. The tool automatically assigns the appropriate amount of memory to each domain based on how you allocated CPU resources, ensuring optimal performance by minimizing NUMA effects.
Monitors and tunes various parameters through a set of scripts and configuration files that run on SuperCluster Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11 global zones.
