 The Remote Preemptive Monitor service for Oracle

     Oracle Software by Donald Burleson

Burleson Consulting wrote the book on proactive Oracle database monitoring and table growth monitoring, a preemptive method to identify and correct anomalies before they effect your database.  RPM is built using Oracle Monitoring Best Practices.
RPM for Oracle is a proactive Oracle monitoring solution, expert support techniques that form a preemptive protection layer to ensure continuous availability of all mission-critical Oracle databases.

RPM for Oracle is a complete solution for complete proactive monitoring of all aspects of Oracle, including the server, disk and network.  The Remote Preemptive Monitor has these components, all designed to provide early-warnings for impending problems.

What makes RPM special?

Unlike "dumb" alert scripts, RPM has additional intelligence to correlate complex interactions.  RPM is a true decision Support System and uses expert system technology to automate the well-structured components of proactive monitoring, but a human expert is required to diagnose and solve an impending problem.

RPM is a complete solution for any Oracle database, measuring all of the important Server and Oracle health metrics.  These are the Remote Preemptive Monitor components:

  • RPM AlertPack - RPM has proprietary alert techniques that warn you of impending problems before your end-users are inconvenienced. 
  • RPM ServerPack - This component of RPM monitors the operating system to warn of server resource problems that may effect Oracle availability.
  • RPM AuditPack - This component of RPM allows you to get fast and accurate capacity planning details so that you never run short of disk or server resources.
  • RPM ManagementPack - RPM provides a complete growth report showing important capacity planning details, including total database size and the growth trends of all key tables.
  • Ion Monitoring - RPM comes with the Ion monitor, a predictive analysis tool to identify hidden performance trends and justify just-in-time database reconfiguration.

Why use RPM for Oracle Monitoring?

RPM is unlike any other Oracle monitor because it encapsulates decades of database monitoring experience into a single package.  Oracle rarely experiences problem without issuing warnings and it is imperative that the Oracle DBA intercede before the database is crippled.

Oracle monitoring is extremely complex and it's not possible to write artificial intelligence that is sophisticated enough to apply the thousands of semi-structured decision rules.  RPM is a decision support system, an expert software package combined with a human interface.

RPM delivery and pricing

The RPM package is delivered on a separate server, completely insulated from your databases and customized to work for your system. Because of the labor-intensive nature of installation and configuration, we cannot offer any free trials. Since we install the software, we guarantee that you will be able to create all of the reports on this page. 

RPM is priced as part of our remote DBA service, a lease with a 12 month commitment in three tiers, depending upon your database size:

Don't put your mission-critical Oracle database under unnecessary risk.  Get RPM and rest-easy that all aspects of Oracle are being monitored.
