Quest Software Inc., a leading provider of application, database and Windows management solutions, announced version 5.0 of Quest Central for Oracle, an integrated set of performance management tools for database administrators (DBAs). This new release offers enhanced performance analysis and support for Oracle RAC and Oracle E-Business applications, while embracing Quest's strategic approach for high performance.

Effective data collection and analysis is essential for identifying and correcting performance issues. Quest Central for Oracle 5.0 includes enhanced Performance Analysis for Oracle, which collects and stores a comprehensive history of the SQL workload and database activity to provide database administrators (DBAs) with the ability to analyze, diagnose and report on problems. This greatly enhances DBA productivity by allowing them to rapidly identify bottlenecks, anomalies and application trends - learning what happened in the past in order to predict performance in the future by looking for conditions that might result in a performance issue.

In addition, both the Performance Analysis and Space Management components of Quest Central now support RAC environments. Performance Analysis supports RAC drill downs while Space Management has been extended to minimize space usage and improve performance in RAC environments. As a result, RAC-based applications perform better and their maintenance costs are reduced significantly, freeing DBAs to focus on extending or adding more business-aligned functionality.

Quest Central for Oracle supports Oracle versions 7.3.4 through 10g. It also supports an extensive list of operating platforms including Linux, Unix, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003.Version 5.0 of Quest Central for Oracle is available this month.
