C.9.11. Oracle::Locks

The Oracle::Locks probe monitors an Oracle database instance and collects the following metric:
  • Active Locks — The current number of active locks as determined by the value in the v$locks table. Database administrators should be aware of high numbers of locks present in a database instance.
Locks are used so that multiple users or processes updating the same data in the database do not conflict. This probe is useful for alerting database administrators when a high number of locks are present in a given instance.
