Consolidated database replay

Real Application Testing option has been enhanced to support “Consolidated Database Replay” functionality to help assess the impact of database and workload consolidation to a single database. Consolidated Database Replay allows concurrent replay of multiple captured production workloads from the same or different systems to a single database. Customers can use this functionality to validate the consolidation strategy recommended by Consolidation Planner and to accurately predict the capacity and sizing of their database infrastructure before production deployment. Here are more details regarding this announcement:

  • Consolidated Database Replay support starting from Oracle Database Release and above. Multiple workload captures (including from  pre- database releases) can be replayed concurrently in database release and above
  • MOS Doc ID 1453789.1 provides more details on the required patches, how to use this functionality and associated best practices
