Best Practices

Pro-Active Problem Avoidance and Diagnostic Collection

Although some problems may be unforeseen, in many cases problems may be avoidable if signs are detected early enough. Additionally, if an issue does occur, it is no use collecting information about that issue after the event. For information proactive preparations and diagnostics, see following notes:

<Document 1482811.1> Best Practices: Proactively Avoiding Database and Query Performance Issues
<Document 1477599.1> Best Practices Around Data Collection For Performance Issues

<Document 785351.1> Oracle 11gR2 Upgrade Companion

Scope

This note concerns itself with highly desirable patches in 11.2.0.4 that are not included in PSU updates, either because they contain optimizer layer fixes or because the PSU that will contain them has not yet been released.

If you do not find a patch for your specific version and OS, please open a Service Request with details on the patch needed. Please include a list of patches already applied (opatch lsinventory -detail) as well as any other patches you intend to apply.
