RDA can be downloaded from Download RDA section in the Note 314422.1 Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 4 - Getting Started

Oracle Support strongly encourages the use of Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) diagnostics collections because it provides a comprehensive picture of the customer's environment. Providing RDA diagnostic output, especially when submitting a Service Request online, can minimize the requirement for follow up questions that may delay problem resolution.

Note: RDA 4 is written in Perl and is a command-line script. Besides Perl and a few basic Perl libraries it is not necessary to install extra software. If for some reason Perl 5.005 or above is not available or is inaccessible on your environment, then a binary version is available for download on major platforms.
