A standard Oracle Database is delivered with several pre-defined jobs that are scheduled to run on a specific schedule. The names and actions may be different from release to release but the concept is basically the same. Some example of these jobs are AUTO_GATHER_JOB, AUTO_SPACE_ADVISOR_JOB, etc

Oracle 10g, does not have pre-defined settings regarding resource manager and therefor the jobs will be run under the consumer group credentials of the user SYS or even worse in the OTHER_GROUPS consumer group.

As of Oracle 11g, the default maintenance window linked to the jobs will automatically switch the database into the DEFAULT_MAINTENANCE_PLAN plan and switych back to the original plan once the window has been closed.

While the credentials specified in the DEFAULT_MAINTENANCE_PLAN plan is suited for most database, some high demand environment such as 24*7 activity have the need to plan maintenance resources in a more intelligent manor. This article will illustrate how this can be achieved
