Oracle System Health Check

Take care of yourself and your systems

IKW's Oracle Health Check Services analyses the design, configuration and performance of your databases and applications. Our approach is to help prevent problems and optimize the usage of the systems, therefore saving costly occurrences and improving staff productivity.

 IKW health checks are conducted by Sr. level Oracle experts with years of experience in certifying the health of your Oracle systems. We also certify, Oracle Streams, Real Application Clusters and all failover and backup-recovery applications.
IKW Application Engineers have extensive experience in system hardware, operating systems and database software. It is this multi-level experience that allows us to help you assess, configure, develop and upgrade your database system for optimal performance.
We have diverse backgrounds in both hardware and software design and tuning. Our staff can go on-site to your location or work remotely to profile, analyze and tune your system so that you can get the most from your software and equipment.

Focus Areas

The IKW Health Check will address partial or all of the following depending on your needs.
  • System DB and Application Integrity for Best Practices
  • Analysis of the overall function of the system. We listen to you in order to understand what your system is designed for, what your users are doing, and what their requirements are.
  • Server analysis. We will begin by collecting Server and OS statistics to determine the overall health and usage of the system. Tuning recommendations are then presented.
  • Stored procedure and analysis. We also look at the system in terms of what it is doing and try to determine if performance can be improved through modifying statements or execution plans.
  • Schema analysis. We will analyze the database schema in order to determine whether or not changes can be made. These changes may be immediate, such as a new index or long term, such as partitioning or distributing the database.
  • Application architecture. We will talk with you or your developers and determine whether architectural changes are recommended, such as the use of a transaction monitor.
  • Scheduled Upgrades
  • FTE Scheduled Vacations for ad-hoc support


Deliverables will focus on the following areas identifying any issues, providing supporting data, make recommendations and the pros and cons for such recommendations, the extent of deliverables will depend on the number and duration of sessions.
  • Oracle Architecture best practices (OFA, SAME, RAID)
  • Oracle Instance best practices (parameters, configuration)
