GA ANNOUNCEMENT - Latency Metrics Now Available in Service Metrics
The Database Service Metrics information help Cloud Admins measure useful quantitative data about their Autonomous Databases. This list of available metrics now includes two new latency metrics:
1) Connection latency - Time taken (in milliseconds) to connect to an Autonomous Database that uses shared Exadata infrastructure in each region from a Compute service virtual machine in the same region.
2) Query latency/response time - Time taken (in milliseconds) to display the results of a simple query on the user's screen.
Note - the tests to measure connection latency and query latency are not run against any customer instances.
Within the Service Metrics console, it is possible to define and publish alarms against these new metrics.
