Posted by FatDBA on August 24, 2012

ADDM (Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor) can be describe as the database’s doctor. It allows an Oracle database to diagnose itself and determine how potential problems could be resolved. ADDM runs automatically after each AWR statistics capture, making the performance diagnostic data readily available.
It Explains the problem and recommendations to fix the flaw in Database.
FINDING 1: 59% impact (944 seconds)
The buffer cache was undersized causing significant additional read I/O.

   RECOMMENDATION 1: DB Configuration, 59% benefit (944 seconds)
      ACTION: Increase SGA target size by increasing the value of parameter
         “sga_target” by 28 M.

      Wait class “User I/O” was consuming significant database time. (83%
      impact [1336 seconds])
