I had a pretty good week of presenting at Open World this week. 3 solo presentations, all well attended. But in one, I had a technical issue – that’s code for I was having problems because I was using the wrong database connection – when trying to show off the Real Time SQL Monitoring support feature in Oracle SQL Developer.
So in case you were there, and left a bit disappointed, I cut this quick 4 minute video.
The Basics, In Print
This post was one of the very first I published about SQL Developer three years ago. One thing I didn’t mention there is that you can control access to this feature by connection. So if you don’t have the Tuning Pack licensed across all of your databases, you can keep yourself from accidentally accessing it.
If you need more help, just talk to your account manager, and I’m sure they can help you sort it out such that you have access to it for all of your instances 🙂
