I realize that it has been nearly a month since I posted. I have been busy with a couple of things. The first was the South African and UK Oracle User Group annual conferences. I’ll have thoughts and highlights from both of these later this week.
The second is a project that I have been working on for a while now. This is a utility for profiling Oracle based applications that I have called SimpleProfiler. The initial public release of this utility can be found here. This utility is available free of charge but still subject to the Creative Commons license. This essentially means use it however you see fit. Some rights are however reserved in particular this utility should not be used commercially.
The utility can be used to generate a resource profile from any trace file to which your client machine has access. That is you do not have to create any directory objects or be located on the database server yourself. In addition the utility will keep a repository of analyzed files. In time this will be enhanced to provide trend analysis and repository management functionality.
If you do use it and find it useful it would be nice to hear from you. If you use it and find it useless that would be useful feedback as well.
