Argent for Oracle

Argent for Oracle is more than just a monitoring solution — like all Argent products, Argent for Oracle is a complete automation solution, automating all the essential but labor-intensive chores that all customers must perform to ensure Oracle runs smoothly.

Argent for Oracle monitors and reports on Oracle baselines, such as blocked processes, long queries, table space, CPU, memory and more.

Argent’s legendary alerting with 18 different types of alerts is fully integrated into Argent for Oracle.

Argent for Oracle comes with pre-defined SLA reports that can be automatically emailed every morning to show the actual health and performance of Oracle.

What are Instant Best Practices?

Instant Best Practices are Argent’s unique technology that combines the best expert knowledge into one fully-integrated solution.

Until Instant Best Practices, you’d have to read tedious White Papers, download and install quirky scripts, install so-called “Management” packs, find a slew of vendors’ add-ons, etc, etc, etc.

All these tedious chores took you time and not to mention all the finger pointing from different vendors.

Rather than being a manager and looking to move up the food chain, you were stuck wasting your time doing the donkey work of trying to make yet-another badly written script work for your environment.

With Argent’s unique technology, hassles are a thing of the past.

With Argent’s Instant Best Practices, all the donkey work is done for you – Instant Best Practices has all the critical variables and values defined.
