    Apps DBA to use root linux user?

    Beauty_and_dBest

      Hi ALL,

       

      EBS R12.1.3

      OL5.3

      11gR1

       

       

      Is it justifiable to grant/allow apps dba's  to login used to root linux user in production servers, to resolve issues or monitor performance?

      What activities does apps dba  need the root for?

       

      For me, I will need root user to run  vmstat, iostat, etc,

      In your opinion, as an Apps DBA, what else do you need the "root" linux user for?

       

       

       

      Kind regards,

      jc
