  • nap parameters in nanoseconds

    Add new startup paramaters -nanonap and -nanonapmax to specify the "nap" and "napmax" values in nanoseconds. If specified these parameters should supercede the current millisecond based -nap & -napmax startup values.

  • diagnostic/recovery option added for remote admin servers to the OEM application

  • Avoid large log files

    Database log files often grow very large. Analysis inside a text or log-file editor is not so handy. I suggest you to manage database log files in a more conveniently way. A very basic enhancement would be the definition of a threshold size (just like...
  • Copy DB and schema

    No idea if this is something that others would want, but currently I need to copy a database and its schema and it would be a lot easier if I could do this with a simple procopy style command.
