Hotsos Product Line
The Hotsos product line includes the following best-in-class software:
- Laredo — Find performance problems before your users do. Laredo helps software developers and database administrators keep changes from accidentally ruining system performance. You should never create or drop an index, change an instance parameter, or even gather statistics without using Laredo.
- HAWCS - Hotsos Application Workload Characterization Solution (HAWCS) will show the measure of efficiency of your Oracle eBusiness Suite for any day in time. Stored HAWCS performance information makes it easy for you to identify wasteful workload and improve system performance. HAWCS also eliminates the guesswork from the problem diagnosis phase of a performance improvement project by showing you how users, workload and performance are relate.
How We're Different
Traditional Oracle tuning tools automate old methods that haven't changed much since Oracle version 5. The problem is, those methods are remarkably inefficient. Often, even with the most expensive tools available, Oracle system owners suffer with performance problems for months without being able to find the root cause.
Finally, something new...
Hotsos automates an efficient new performance improvement method that enables Hotsos-trained analysts to do better performance work than they've ever imagined, at dramatically reduced labor costs and with very little training.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happened to Sparky?
Sparky was a free program that made trace file collection into a point and click operation for Oracle versions 7, 8, and 9. It became something of a maintenance nightmare for us because it wasn't designed to work with connection pooling architectures or Oracle Database 10g, so we retired it. It is no longer available.
