Symptoms

It is important to consider the scope and granularity of the problem.
When researching your problem make sure you have a good understanding what the problem is regarding, and what is not related!


For Example: Crash, Hang, Eviction my be interpreted differently depending on the perspective of the user.

What one person considers an "outage" may be anything from a complete failure due to a hardware issue to a failed query, or even problems logging on.
A "Crash" can be for the database, a server, CRS, OS (kernel panic), a power outage or hardware issue or even a middle tier problem from the user perspective.
A "Hang" and "Spin" have very different sources, but to the user have the same symptom as a connection problem.
An "Eviction" can occur for a RAC instance on a single-node, but be due to Hardware, Firmware, OS, Resources, Database or CRS issues.

The point:

Take time to isolate the scope of the problem based on the errors seen.
Working from the session or process level can often be easily identified when a second attempt for the operation works.

When nothing works for any user, start at the SYSTEM level including:
  Application: what is running and what is not? Server? Database? Application?
  Resources (memory, storage, and CPU),
  Network and connectivity (Do local connections work but the application or external connections fail?)
