  23. Remote Diagnostic Agent 4.1 Select an Index item

  24. Remote Diagnostic Agent 4.1 Opens a menu of detailed reports Choose a Subtopic

  25. Remote Diagnostic Agent 4.1 Paste an Oracle trace file portion containing error codes and search the database for possible matches RDBMS Log/Trace Files Last Error Trace File

  26. DB / Server Diagnostics Ora-600 Error Lookup by Argument • ORA-600 errors are raised from the kernel code of the Oracle RDBMS software when an internal inconsistency is detected or an unexpected condition is met. • The ora-600 tool was developed to help users address these errors • Look up the definition based on the first argument of the ORA-600 error and have the option to search the database for possible matches. • Upload an Oracle trace file containing an ORA-600 or an ORA-7445 error and have the option to look up the definition or search the database for possible matches

  27. DB / Server Diagnostics ORA-600/ORA-7445 Error Lookup by Argument • ORA-600 errors are raised from the kernel code of the Oracle RDBMS software when an internal inconsistency is detected or an unexpected condition is met. • ORA-7445 errors are raised by an Oracle server process when it has received a fatal signal from the operating system. • The ORA-600/ORA 7445 tool was developed to help users address these errors • Look up the definition based on the first argument of the ORA-600 error or failing function of the ORA-7445 error and have the option to search the database for possible matches. • Upload an Oracle trace file containing an ORA-600 or ORA-7445 error and have the option to look up the definition or search the database for possible matches

  40. Types of Support Diagnostics Tools Test Types: • Setup -gathering information about setup relevant to a particular product / functionality / issue, examining that information,providing feedback and suggesting appropriate actions • Activity -gathering information about data and configuration relevant to a particular functionality / issue, examining that information,providing feedback and suggesting appropriate actions • Collection -gathering information relevant to a particular product / functionality / issue

  41. Features of the Latest Diagnostics 2.3 New Features • Login procedure - Username password is prompted for prior to entering OD, eliminates the need to enter username/password each time a test is run • Diagnostic tools search - Search by product and entered keywords • Batch Process - Allows for multiple tests to run concurrently, multiple products and multiple tests may be selected • Upload to Oracle Support Services - Enables possibility to upload a test output directly to Oracle Support Services Enhanced Features • LogViewer - More user-friendly (user still can only view logs of his/her previous executions) • Saving Output - Simplified way to save the diagnostic tool output

  42. How To Install And SetOracle Diagnostics And Support Diagnostics • Oracle Diagnostics are part of the standard product and so they are automatically installed BUT it is necessary to install the Support Diagnostics Patch to get all available support diagnostics tools. • When the Support Diagnostics Patch is installed, Oracle Diagnostics 2.3 are installed as well • Before first Support Diagnostics Patch installation, patch 3636980 MUST be installed to register Support Diagnostics in Oracle Applications • NO setup steps are necessary to have Oracle Diagnostics and Support Diagnostics up and running • All details are described in Note: 167000.1
