Setting Up Database Monitoring for Self-Hosted Oracle

Database Monitoring is not supported for this site.

Database Monitoring provides deep visibility into your Oracle databases by exposing query samples to profile your different workloads and diagnose issues.

Before completing the steps below, verify that you have met the prerequisites for Database Monitoring.

Agent database user setup

The Datadog Agent requires read-only access to the database server to collect samples.

Create user

If you installed the legacy Oracle integration, skip this step because the user already exists. You must, however, execute the subsequent steps.

Create a read-only login to connect to your server and grant the required permissions:

CREATE USER c##datadog IDENTIFIED BY &password CONTAINER = ALL ;

ALTER USER c##datadog SET CONTAINER_DATA=ALL CONTAINER=CURRENT;

Grant permissions

Log on as sysdba, and grant the following permissions:

grant create session to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$session to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$database to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$containers to c##datadog;
grant select on v_$sqlstats to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$instance to c##datadog ;
grant select on dba_feature_usage_statistics to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SQL_PLAN_STATISTICS_ALL to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$PROCESS to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SESSION to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$CON_SYSMETRIC to c##datadog ;
grant select on CDB_TABLESPACE_USAGE_METRICS to c##datadog ;
grant select on CDB_TABLESPACES to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SQLCOMMAND to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$DATAFILE to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SYSMETRIC to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SGAINFO to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$PDBS to c##datadog ;
grant select on CDB_SERVICES to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$OSSTAT to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$PARAMETER to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SQLSTATS to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$CONTAINERS to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SQL_PLAN_STATISTICS_ALL to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$SQL to c##datadog ;
grant select on V_$PGASTAT to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$asm_diskgroup to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$rsrcmgrmetric to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$dataguard_config to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$dataguard_stats to c##datadog ;
grant select on v_$transaction to c##datadog;
grant select on v_$locked_object to c##datadog;
grant select on dba_objects to c##datadog;
grant select on cdb_data_files to c##datadog;
grant select on dba_data_files to c##datadog;

If you conifgured custom queries that run on a pluggable database (PDB), you must grant set container privilege to the C##DATADOG user:

connect / as sysdba
alter session set container = your_pdb ;
grant set container to c##datadog ;

Create view

Log on as sysdba, create a new view in the sysdba schema, and give the Agent user access to it:

Configure the Agent

To start collecting Oracle telemetry, first install the Datadog Agent.

Create the Oracle Agent conf file /etc/datadog-agent/conf.d/oracle-dbm.d/conf.yaml. See the sample conf file for all available configuration options.

init_config:
instances:
  - server: '<HOSTNAME_1>:<PORT>'
    service_name: "<CDB_SERVICE_NAME>" # The Oracle CDB service name
    username: 'c##datadog'
    password: '<PASSWORD>'
    dbm: true
    tags:  # Optional
      - 'service:<CUSTOM_SERVICE>'
      - 'env:<CUSTOM_ENV>'
  - server: '<HOSTNAME_2>:<PORT>'
    service_name: "<CDB_SERVICE_NAME>" # The Oracle CDB service name
    username: 'c##datadog'
    password: '<PASSWORD>'
    dbm: true
    tags:  # Optional
      - 'service:<CUSTOM_SERVICE>'
      - 'env:<CUSTOM_ENV>'

The Agent connects only to the root multitenant container database (CDB). It queries the information about PDB while connected to the root CDB. Don’t create connections to individual PDBs.

Once all Agent configuration is complete, restart the Datadog Agent.

Create user

Create a read-only login to connect to your server and grant the required permissions:

Configure the Agent

To start collecting Oracle telemetry, first install the Datadog Agent.

Create the Oracle Agent conf file /etc/datadog-agent/conf.d/oracle-dbm.d/conf.yaml. See the sample conf file for all available configuration options.

init_config:
instances:
  - server: '<HOSTNAME_1>:<PORT>'
    service_name: "<SERVICE_NAME>" # The Oracle DB service name
    username: 'datadog'
    password: '<PASSWORD>'
    dbm: true
    tags:  # Optional
      - 'service:<CUSTOM_SERVICE>'
      - 'env:<CUSTOM_ENV>'
  - server: '<HOSTNAME_2>:<PORT>'
    service_name: "<SERVICE_NAME>" # The Oracle DB service name
    username: 'datadog'
    password: '<PASSWORD>'
    dbm: true
    tags:  # Optional
      - 'service:<CUSTOM_SERVICE>'
      - 'env:<CUSTOM_ENV>'

Once all Agent configuration is complete, restart the Datadog Agent.

Validate

Run the Agent’s status subcommand and look for oracle-dbm under the Checks section. Navigate to the Dashboard and Databases page in Datadog to get started.

Custom queries

Database Monitoring supports custom queries for Oracle databases. See the conf.yaml.example to learn more about the configuration options available.

Running custom queries may result in additional costs or fees assessed by Oracle.
