Quest Software Introduces Toad DBA Suite for Oracle - RAC Edition

Quest Software has released a RAC edition of the Toad DBA Suite. The Toad DBA Suite for Oracle is a single toolset that gives users the productivity tools they need to become more proactive by assuring maintenance, performance and change. The RAC Edition extends those capabilities by adding Spotlight on RAC, providing a graphical view of performance diagnostics for a better understanding of the user's RAC environment.

According to John Pocknell, Toad product manager, the Toad DBA Suite for Oracle - RAC Edition is designed for DBAs and DBA managers to address user productivity and database performance, which helps to reduce the total cost of ownership of a RAC implementation. The Toad DBA Suite for Oracle - RAC Edition extends the current capabilities of Toad DBA Suite for Oracle, focuses only on the database and addresses three key areas of database administration. These areas are maintenance - including managing users and user sessions, database health checks (including security as it relates to user Oracle accounts and permissions), and task automation and scheduling; performance management - with real-time performance diagnostics of RAC environments, database and SQL optimization; and change management - including configuration changes, schema changes, database workload replay testing and benchmark testing of RAC environment.
