New Release Trace File Analyzer  Now Available

Faster & Easier SR Data Collection

These make it fast and easy to collect exactly the right diagnostic data if you need help from Oracle Support.

Quick System & Cluster Summary

The new summary command can be used to quickly understand the viability of systems and clusters.

It shows a fast, easy to read summary of the status including any potential problems with important elements such as:

  • Clusterware
  • ASM
  • Patch
  • Listener
  • OS
  • Network

Summary is currently only supported on Linux.

Log Maintenance Made Easy

Use Oracle Trace File Analyzer to either automatically or manually purge database logs.

Automatic purging is OFF by default, except on a Domain Service Cluster (DSC).

The new managelogs command manages ADR log and trace files, including:

  • Shows disk space usage of individual diagnostic destinations
  • Purges logs and trace files based on diagnostic location and or age

Oracle Trace File Analyzer will automatically check disk usage and record snapshots for later diagnosis.

Simple IPS (Incident Packaging Service) Interface

The Oracle Database stores details of certain problems in ADR (Automatic Diagnostic Repository).


IPS packages these details for later diagnosis.

Oracle Trace File Analyzer can invoke IPS to query and collect these packages.

Microsoft Windows Support

This release adds support for Microsoft Windows, on all versions supported by the Database.

Easy to Use Menu Interface

As well as the command line interface and the shell interface. This release adds a menu interface for simple access to diagnostic operations.

This starts with the new menu command.

Built on the Latest, Most Secure Java release 1.8

Oracle Trace File Analyzer now uses the latest Java features; this has made JRE 1.8 a requirement.

JRE 1.8 is already shipped with the latest versions of the 12c Database and Grid Infrastructure. It is also included with the download install.

The JRE is platform specific. As Oracle Trace File Analyzer includes the JRE, the install is now platform specific.
