Proactive and Preventative recommendations & Maintenance PDF Print E-mail
Remote Managed Services includes a unique combination of proactive and preventative monitoring to ensure the highest possible level of system performance and availability.

These recommendations are provided in a prioritized order:

  • Immediate Action Identifies serious issues that pose a known risk to database health, potentially leading to downtime or unacceptably poor performance. Recommended Action
  • Identifies actions that would improve the overall efficiency and/or performance of the database and to prevent future/potential database risk or failure. Administrative Action
  • Identifies actions that will improve database processes and organization, i.e., non-critical items that are helpful or represent best practices, but do not significantly impair the overall performance or stability of the database.

Performance Optimization

A core element of our Remote Managed Services offering is the optimized performance of system and Oracle database. Our technical experts monitor critical system parameters on a scheduled basis and perform all the necessary but often overlooked tasks vital to system performance such as data base index monitoring, table reorganization and resizing, and even full system backups for recovery purposes.

We offer database and SQL tuning services. We gather critical performance data that provides us with effective information for tuning your database systems. Upon request, our DBAs can also give you hands-on help to optimize database performance. Our DBAs can analyze your database hardware and software to:

  • Enhance system performance through load-leveling, SQL tuning, and other tasks
  • Maximize CPU, disk I/O, network I/O, and other critical system resources
  • Resolve row chaining, database chaining, and free list contention issues
  • Optimize file layouts
  • Reorganize and defragment your database
  • Cluster your indexes

Our Oracle DBA specialists leverage automated Oracle tools to monitor your system performance continuously and can apply minor fixes to ensure system availability and top performance.

OneAPPS supports the most popular versions of the UNIX operating system including Solaris, HPUX, AIX, and Linux with support for Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000.

Online Information PORTAL

Each client is assigned a username and password for online viewing of the data and the ongoing monitoring activities. The client can also view the reports and the status of the activities.

Standardized Process

Without a standardized process, every database becomes a unique and customized installation. Database server availability can be impacted if each database is configured in a nonstandard manner. OneAPPS insures that every database installation is fully documented with listings of the major configuration parameters, task list spreadsheet, tablespaces, and datafile paths, a periodic processes spreadsheet and overall implementation diagrams.

Change management

Objective of change management process is to minimize the impact of technical changes to end users and business processes.

Technical Changes Included in Change Management are:

  • Oracle Database software patch upgrade.
  • Oracle database software bug-fixes.

Statistical information collected from the database(s) is tailored for the release level, features implemented, nature of the application requirements and performance requirements as defined by the client. OneAPPS then utilizes a repository of database scripts to acquire information that identifies issues specific to the client requirements.
