Toad DBA Suite for Oracle - RAC Edition

Simplify Oracle administration and solve RAC performance bottlenecks quickly

The Toad™ DBA Suite for Oracle is a complete set of Oracle DBA tools that enable you to become more proactive by automating maintenance, ensuring optimal performance, and mitigating the risk of change. The RAC Edition extends those capabilities by adding Spotlight® on Oracle RAC, which provides a graphical view of performance diagnostics for a better understanding of your RAC environment. In addition, the Toad for Oracle and Benchmark Factory® components of the suite automatically detect the presence of Oracle RAC and have their own productivity- and performance-enhancing functionalities for RAC environments.
