8.2 Managing the Oracle Trace File Analyzer Daemon

Oracle Trace File Analyzer runs from init on UNIX systems or init/upstart/systemd on Linux, or Microsoft Windows uses a Windows Service so that Oracle Trace File Analyzer starts automatically whenever a node starts.

To manage Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon:

The init control file /etc/init.d/init.tfa is platform dependant.
  1. To start or stop Oracle Trace File Analyzer manually:
    • tfactl start: Starts the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon

    • tfactl stop: Stops the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon

    If the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon fails, then the operating system restarts the daemon automatically.

  2. To enable or disable automatic restarting of the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon:
    • tfactl disable: Disables automatic restarting of the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon.

    • tfactl enable: Enables automatic restarting of the Oracle Trace File Analyzer daemon.
