Oracle

Pre-requisites

Check the supported versions

DBmarlin supports most versions of Oracle from 11g and above. Please check the list of supported platforms before continuing and contact us if you are not sure.

info

Note that running DBmarlin does not trigger the use of any Oracle features such as Diagnositic or Tuning Packs that would lead to increased Oracle license costs.

Create a monitoring user with the correct permissions

Before adding a target Oracle instance in the UI you should first create a dbmarlin user in the target database instance.

CREATE USER dbmarlin IDENTIFIED BY password 'securepassword';
default tablespace users
temporary tablespace temp;
GRANT CREATE SESSION, SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE TO dbmarlin;

Adding the Database Target

This is done through the User Interface using the Add Database screen
