Use Performance Hub to Monitor Databases

You can use Performance Hub to view real-time and historical performance data for an Autonomous Transaction Processing dedicated database. Performance Hub shows Active Session History (ASH) Analytics and SQL Monitoring.

  1. Go to the Details page of the Autonomous Transaction Processing dedicated database you want to monitor with Performance Hub.
  2. On the Details page, select Performance Hub.

The Performance Hub page is displayed.

The Time Range selector is on the top of the Performance Hub page. Use the Select Duration field to set the time duration. By default, Last hour is selected. You can choose to view Last 8 hours, Last 24 hours, Last week, or specify a custom time range using the Custom option.

The Time Range field shows active sessions in chart form for the time period selected. The active sessions chart displays the average number of active sessions broken down by CPU, User I/O, and Wait. The active sessions chart also shows the Max CPU usage.

The sliding box on the time range chart is the time slider. Use the time slider to select the exact period of time for which data is displayed in the Performance Hub tables and graphs. This is a subsection of the period of time shown in the Time Range field.

You can slide the box to the left or the right to shift the time period under analysis. To slide the entire box, left-click anywhere inside the box and drag the box to the left or the right. Widen or narrow the box to increase or decrease the length of time under analysis. To widen or narrow the box, left-click and hold the handlebar on either side of the box, then drag to the left or the right to increase or decrease the size of the current time range box.

Click Refresh to refresh the data in Performance Hub according to the time range chosen.

Select either ASH Analytics or SQL Monitoring:

  • Active Session History (ASH) Analytics:

    This shows Active Session History (ASH) analytics charts to explore Active Session History data. You can drill down into database performance across multiple dimensions such as Consumer Group, Wait Class, SQL ID, and User Name. Select an Average Active Sessions dimension and view the top activity for that dimension for the selected time period.

  • SQL Monitoring:

    The SQL statements are only monitored if they've been running for at least five seconds or if they're run in parallel. The table displays monitored SQL statement executions by dimensions including Last Active Time, CPU Time, and Database Time. The table displays currently running SQL statements and SQL statements that completed, failed, or were terminated. The columns in the table provide information for monitored SQL statements including Status, Duration, and SQL ID.

    The Status column has the following icons:

    • A spinning icon indicates that the SQL statement is executing.
    • A green check mark icon indicates that the SQL statement completed its execution during the specified time period.
    • A red cross icon indicates that the SQL statement did not complete, either due to an error, or due to the session being terminated.
    • A clock icon indicates that the SQL statement is queued.

    To terminate a running or queued SQL statement, click Kill Session.

    Select the link in the SQL ID column to go to the corresponding Real-time SQL Monitoring page. This page provides additional details to help you tune the selected SQL statement.
