Completion load drop-down list - Default value for new sheet. Determines how to load hints for database objects.

  • Work - In real time

  • Manual - Manual

  • Switch "Rename history file [tmp dir]" - On - rename temporary files of sheets of the previous session of the program, thereby preserving the work of the previous session.

  • Switch "Automatically save lists editor" - On - Enable the mechanism of automatic saving of the text of sheets of the query editor to a folder on disk. By default, sheets are saved to files in the directory .\Tmp\lists \<current_date>\ <List_name> .sql

  • Switch "Copy text new list" - On - when cloning the current sheet ( Ctrl + t ), copy the contents of the sheet into a new sheet.



Monitoring page setting


  • Switch "To chek the rigth on the object" - check the rights to tables / views when connecting to the database.

  • Switch "Save SQL text" - save the text of sql queries executed by active sessions. Data collection is performed by the process of collecting data on the load on the database

  • Switch "Automatically [ASH or Real-time]" - allow the program to automatically decide on the source of load data in the database. When ASH views are available, a decision is made to use them. If no views are available, the data is taken from the V $ SESSION view. It is recommended to disable this function.

  • Switch "Use mode Real-time" - use data from V$SESSION to form load profile. It is recommended to use the specified mechanism

  • Switch "Adjust the timer" - activation of this function forces the system core to adjust the start time of data collection providing a "strict" interval of 1 s. between the moments of the beginning of the execution of requests forming the ASH profile.

Setting up and maintaining local application databases

local database page setting
  • "Backup directory" - the path to the folder in which to save the backup copies of the application databases upon shutdown.

  • "Password" - password for program backups

IMPORTANT: the backup is activated automatically when filling in the "Backup directory" and "Password" fields

Changing the password for entering the program.

Clear ASH database

Cleaning and compressing the ASH.db base. This database stores data on the load on the database collected by the main core of the program. Since there is a large amount of data received from loaded databases, the specified database tends to grow. The cleanup operation allows you to reduce the size of the database without completely rebuilding it and losing data
