There’s a nice Metalink Note 438452.1 about various less known Oracle performance tuning utilities.
If you haven’t heard about things like StackX, LTOM, HangFG, SQLTXPLAIN, OS_Watcher or OPDG then it’s time to check this note out! :)
NB! If you want to move to the "New World" - and benefit from the awesomeness of Hadoop, without having to re-engineer your existing applications - check out Gluent, my new startup that will make history! ;-)
