dba_advisor_findings procedure


Structure of dba_advisor_findings

The task_id field can be used to gather more information about a specific task. These findings can be in one of four categories as shows in the type field:
  • Problem
  • Symptom
  • Error
  • Information
These categorizations provide a triage area to look at the PROBLEM items first. These are the items where the type is set to the string PROBLEM. A DBA allowing ADDM to advise on database performance issues will, ideally, work their way down to review and address the INFORMATION items.

Step 1: Create a tuning task

You have a SQL statement (perhaps from a packaged application, and you may not be able to change the code).

create_tuning_task (
sql_text => 'select * from emp_history
bind_list =>
usern_name => 'scott',
scope => 'comprehensive',
time_limit => 60,
task_name => 'bad_sql',
description => 'sql that performs poorly');

Step 2: Execute the tuning task

Execute_tuning_task (
Task_name => 'bad_sql');

The results of this execution have been put into the new catalog tables, and can be seen by querying dba_advisor_% views such as dba_advisor_findings, dba_advisor_recommendations, etc.

Step 3: See the results

set long 10000;
select report_tuning_task (task_name => 'bad_sql') from dual;

This will return a complete report of the results, including dba_advisor_findings and recommendations. This report can also be run via OEM
