Metrics for Exadata Cloud Infrastructure in the Database Management Service
This article describes the metrics emitted by the Exadata Cloud
Infrastructure Database service in the oracle_oci_database
namespace
for Oracle Databases.
To use database metrics for these Oracle Databases in Exadata Cloud Infrastructure Database Service, you must enable Database Management for the database you want to monitor. You can enable either Basic Management or Full Management for your database. See Enable Database Management for instructions.
Dimensions
All the metrics discussed in this topic include the following dimensions.
- RESOURCEID - The OCID of the database.
- RESOURCENAME - The name of the database.
- DEPLOYMENTTYPE - The deployment type of the database.
Note: Valid alarm intervals are 5 minutes or greater due to the frequency at which these metrics are emitted. See To create an alarm for details on creating alarms.
The database metrics can be provided for the basic and full Database Management options.
The metrics listed in the following table are automatically available for Oracle Databases when the Basic Database Management option is enabled.
