Analysis of Database Issues using AHF and Machine Learning

Oracle Autonomous Health Framework (AHF) is Oracle’s Artificial Intelligence Operations platform for autonomous database health management. This session will focus on enhancements to current functionality and new features in 21c until present time. We will discuss how to use the data which is derived from the Bayesian Net framework of AHF to conduct root cause analysis, telemetry and remediations for issues. You will learn to utilize these features to determine workload footprint, ongoing monitoring, early detection of anomalies and performance issues, their root causes and corrective actions, prevention of node or database failures, and targeted postmortem analysis enabling quick resolution.
