Using Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) to diagnose a JDBC client (Doc ID 1376181.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 09, 2023

Applies to:

JDBC - Version to [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Remote Diagnostic Agent can provide some useful information when run on an Oracle installation such as an Oracle Client, Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server (Weblogic-based or the older OC4J-based) installations.  This note highlights the feature that are useful to debug a JDBC client. Please note however that you cannot run an RDA on a downloaded JDBC driver  jar file or other type of ad-hoc environment not provided by an Oracle installation,  which is often the case with JDBC/thin environments such as downloaded drivers or third party application server installations bundling Oracle JDBC driver jar files.

For general information about RDA please refer to <Note 314422.1> Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 4 - Getting Started
