AWR/ADDM/ASH Coming Blank. Tuning Advisors not working :( … (What to do ??)

Posted by FatDBA on January 23, 2014

You have a new database designed and created for the team to test changes before they go and apply in Production. One fine day you feel a need to check performance of database and get some auto suggestions from oracle engine itself using ADDM and AWR or ASH … But what if they are coming blank and Tuning Advisors throwing errors saying ….

DECLARE
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-13717: Tuning Package License is needed for using this feature.
ORA-06512: at “SYS.PRVT_SMGUTIL”, line 52
ORA-06512: at “SYS.PRVT_SMGUTIL”, line 37
ORA-06512: at “SYS.DBMS_MANAGEMENT_PACKS”, line 26
ORA-06512: at “SYS.DBMS_SQLTUNE”, line 651
ORA-06512: at line 4

WHAT TO DO ?

Reason: This case comes in to existence if you are using STANDARD edition of Oracle Database.
Here is a small fix for the problem —-
Change the parameter (control_management_pack) to ‘DIAGNOSTIC+TUNING’ in order to enable MMON to collect the health statistics timely to AWR related tables (Sits in SYSAUX)

SQL> show parameter control_management_pack
NAME                                 TYPE                             VALUE
———————————— ——————————– ——————————
control_management_pack_access       string                           NONE

SQL> ALTER system SET CONTROL_MANAGEMENT_PACK_ACCESS=‘DIAGNOSTIC+TUNING’;
System altered.

SQL>  show parameter control_management_pack
NAME                                 TYPE                             VALUE
———————————— ——————————– ——————————
control_management_pack_access       string                           DIAGNOSTIC+TUNING
