Simplified Real-Time Summary Report

The summary command has been simplified to provide a quick access, real-time view of all key database components.

It shows any potential problems with important elements such as:

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

To run summary use: tfactl summary


Cloud Collection Upload to Bug or TFAWeb

Oracle Cloud environments can now use TFA to upload diagnostics directly to bugs and / or TFAWeb.

Upload diagnostics to TFAWeb and make use of the machine learning powered, Anomaly Timeline and analyzers.


Upload diagnostics to both TFAWeb and directly to a bug for developer analysis:



tfactl upload -bugsftp -bug <bug#> -user <UserId> <file1 file2>

Automatic Collection Upload to SRs

TFA can automatically upload diagnostics to an SR as soon as it's collected them.


Store the My Oracle Support credentials securely in the wallet with:  tfactl setupmos


Then add the -sr <sr_number> option to any diagcollect command to automatically upload the resulting collection to the Service Request. For example:


TFA can also upload any other file to a Service Request. Upload using the wallet, which was setup previously:
tfactl upload -wallet -sr <sr_number> <file1 file2>


Or upload without the wallet, which will prompt for the password:
tfactl upload -user <user_id> -sr <sr_number> <file1 file2>


Faster and Easier Service Request Data Collection

Oracle Trace File Analyzer includes new One Command SRDCs (Service Request Data Collections).
