Performance Metrics

PeopleSoft Administrator Podcast: #183 – Effective Performance Monitoring

I recently recorded a podcast with Dan Iverson and Kyle Benson for the PeopleSoft Administrator Podcast, this time about instrumentation, monitoring the performance of PeopleSoft system, and Performance Monitor.  There is also just a little about cursor sharing.

Effective PeopleSoft Performance Monitoring

This advice note describes how to configure PeopleSoft systems on Oracle so that performance metrics are collected that are useful performance monitoring and subsequent performance tuning.

PS360: A Utility to Extract and Present PeopleSoft Configuration and Performance Data

Introduction

Most of a PeopleSoft application is itself stored in the database in PeopleTools tables.  Therefore there is lot of information about the configuration and operation of a PeopleSoft system.  There are also performance metrics, particularly about batch processes.
PS360 is a new tool on which I am working.  It just uses SQL scripts to extract that data to html files, and package them up in a zip file so that they can be sent for further analysis.  The style and method is closely modelled on Enkitec's EDB360 by Carlos Sierra.  This is another free tool used for health check and performance analysis of any Oracle database system.  PS360 aims to gather PeopleSoft specific information that is not presented by EDB360.  It also runs in Oracle's SQL*Plus tool, and so is only available for use with an Oracle database.
