The addition of Top Plans and Top Objects into the Confio Igniter Suite deepens the analysis capability for our most demanding Oracle DBAs

Confio Software, the leader in Performance Intelligence tools for database monitoring, today announced two new features in Confio Ignite for Oracle. Available immediately, the newest version of Confio's Performance Intelligence solution incorporates historical tracking of Oracle Explain Plans to increase the precision of analysis that can be executed by database administrators (DBAs) who rely on the Confio Igniter Suite to monitor, manage and optimize databases and the applications that depend on them.

Top Plans and Top Objects leverage the information-rich Explain Plans in Oracle. Explain Plan is a function of the Oracle database to represent the steps taken when a query is executed within Oracle databases.

"The addition of Top Plans and Top Objects into the Confio Igniter Suite deepens the analysis capability for our most demanding Oracle DBAs," commented Don Bergal, chief operating officer at Confio Software. "While Confio Software now has industry leading solutions for SQL Server, DB2, Sybase and J2EE applications, Confio has also continued to expand the features for our large Oracle base of customers."

For each Oracle query Wait-time is now captured in a "Top Plans" dimension for Confio Ignite for Oracle. The Top Plans dimension for Oracle 10g and higher monitored databases and allows Confio Ignite for Oracle users to perform detailed analysis of each Explain Plan. As part of the Performance Intelligence dashboard, a Top Plan chart ranks end user Wait-time associated with each execution plan on a given SQL. A user can then drill-down into the Top Plan to identify the objects and cost associated with each step.

In addition to the overall time illustrated as Top Plans, "Top Objects" is a feature in Ignite for Oracle that monitors the database objects such as indexes and tables that are in-use as a monitored SQL statement executes. For Oracle 9i and higher monitored databases, a Top Objects dimension captures the schema owner, object type and, if applicable, even the hard disk partition creating end user waits, then displays them in the Performance Intelligence dashboard.

The Confio Igniter Suite saves companies thousands to millions of dollars by avoiding costly hardware upgrades and giving them the Performance Intelligence to tune their databases and applications. With a single solution crossing multiple database vendors, the Confio Igniter Suite delivers rapid results for companies who can download, install and begin identifying problems within 30 minutes.
