New SRDCs (Service Request Diagnostic Collections)
The following new SRDCs are now available:
dbdatapatch - for Datapatch problems
dbstandalonedbca - for Database Configuration Assistant problems
dbspatialinstall - for Oracle Spatial Installation problems
dbrmanperf - has been updated to include diagnostic data collection for RMAN Backup, RMAN Maintenance, RMAN Restore and Recover, RMAN-08137 or RMAN-08120, and RMAN Performance problems
dbtextupgrade - for Oracle Text version 188.8.131.52 and later upgrade problems

ORA-04063 - for ORA-04063 problems
dbspatialexportimport - for Oracle Spatial Export/Import problems
As with all other SRDCs use tfactl diagcollect -srdc srdc_name.
Merging of multiple automatic SRDCs
If TFA detects a significant event, then it waits five minutes to check any other events, which occur as a result, and collects all of these.
If there are multiple SRDC related events, which occur on the same Database within that five minute period, then TFA performs one merged SRDC collection for all of them.
For example: If an ORA-00600 event occurs and 30 seconds later an ORA-04031 event occurs, then TFA performs one SRDC that collects everything necessary to resolve both the errors. Merging of SRDCs applies to the following:
Over future releases the automatic collection of specific SRDCs will be extended to cover other events.
Running SRDC commands in silent mode
SRDCs have prompts for problem details, which are specific to the SRDC type.
The answers to these prompts can now be provided directly from the command line, allowing the full automation of all SRDCs.
