1 Get Started with Oracle IT Analytics

Oracle IT Analytics gives you a 360-degree insight into the performance, availability, and capacity of your applications and IT resources. It enables line of business executives, analysts, and administrators to make critical decisions about their IT operations, based on comprehensive system and data analysis.

By using Oracle IT Analytics, you can find systemic issues, analyze resource usage across application tiers, and forecast future demand for IT services based on historical performance trends.


Oracle IT Analytics retains the raw data (the metric data that is collected and uploaded by agents on the target hosts) for eight days. Before purging the raw data, it rolls up the data into hourly and daily intervals. The rolled up data is then retained for 13 months to provide historical metric information. Data becomes inaccessible at the end of the 13-month period.
