Upcoming Features in ION V3

These are some of the future enhancements you can expect from the ION project, already in the works!

Ion v3 will include data mining features that submit background tasks to identify salient workloads.  Starting with general cohorts (OLTP and DSS), Ion v3 will perform pattern matching to categorize each workload period as OLTP and DSS

1 - Searches AWR/STATSPACK for repeating changes to workloads

      a) For HOD - Analyze by hour of the day to find patterns of similar usage by:

              1) Display max(physical reads)  

             2) Transaction characteristics (high repeated executions, low I/O for OLTP) 

      b) For DOW - Analyze cohorts for day of the week

 2 - Recommend - Ion v3 will then justify the answer with data and make suggestions about what/when to change in terms of initialization parameters or changes to CBO statistics. 

- feature coming soon 

ION is designed exclusively for senior Oracle tuning professionals
and it is not appropriate for beginners.
