I have started using your OraSnap scripts on my database and first off, I have to say I think they are great!
As a DBA, I really felt the need for such tool. I believe it is really a gift for we DBAs.
I am currently testing OraSnap v2.5.1 and it is a great product.
Let me thank you for your tool because it is very nice and helpfull for any dba. Actually, I use orasnap
V2.5.0 on different versions of databases 22.214.171.124, 8.0.6 and 8.1.6.
Thanks for that fantastic tool. Now its easy to see how the database is running.
I don't know what to say. I'm shocked and saddened to hear that I'm the first ever to send you a donation
for this fantastic product. OraSnap is easily the most valuable and comprehensive tool in my arsenal.
It is widely used, and ALL of us make a good living managing Oracle databases. It is therefore
inconceivable to me that no one else would send you something. Ah, yes... more evidence that my natural
bent toward cynicism is not unfounded. ;-) By the way, on a more positive note, your newest
feature, the "Mini Snapshot", is fantastic! Thanks again, and keep up the good work.
Wanted to thank you for creating OraSnap. Became an intricate part of my monitoring process.
I have been using Orasnap successfully for a while now. My compliments on a great tool.
Thanks so much for your efforts with OraSnap. I have set it up to monitor 3 different databases
and it's providing valuable information.
I tried out the OraSnap software and what I have seen of it, it is great.
I have been using your excellent Orasnap utility and have found it very useful.
This product is just great. It has exactly what it needs. Nothing more nothing less.
I'm a senior DBA, I've started with ORacle in 1993 and I'm using it all the time.
Thanks a lot!
Congratulation for this Job!
I teach Oracle Administration and Tunning Database Course in Colombia
and in my classes i use your tool for explain a lot of concepts, and the
way for build some tools, such that this tools help to DBAs to manage
-Juan Carlos Soto Orjuela
First of all let me say the the Orasnap tool is a great dba resource. I
have setup the multiple instance monitoring to be automatically run on an NT
workstation twice during business hours and the resulting web pages are
copied up to a web server for viewing. This is all done without any user
I just did a quick look against Personal 7.3.4 on 98.
I am so impressed I want to try it on enterprise databases this week.
Congratulation for creating such a nice tool.
I just download and installed your VERY VERY fine product. So far I very exited about it.
This is the greatest Freeware I have EVER used. Thanks and keep up the good work.
This is a very good product.
This thing is C O O L !!!!!
-Ivan B. Krnic
Thanks for your wonderful product.
OraSnap is an excellent tool ! ;-) Thanx for it !
I LIKE IT VERY MUCH!!! I'll recommend to all my DBA friends.
ORASNAP 2.2.1 worked just as you stated. Looking forward to trying 2.3.1 !!
As another Oracle DBA I love it!! I use it on our department web-site for a summary of
our 8 Oracle instances most of which are over 1.5 TB (largest 4 tb). I also use
ORASNAP with my home Oracle 8.1.5 where I'm trying to teach my 16 yr old to be an Oracle DBA too.
With this mail we want to says thanks to the people that build Orasnap!
Our first reactions are very enthousiastic, in the next weeks we are going
to look at it more in detail. Our recommendations will be sent to you too.
The information that is presented by Orasnap was already available in
scripts at our site, but the main problem we had was to convert it to a
readable and maintainable document that could be used as a description off
the configuration of the oracle instances and databases. Orasnap fullfills
in all these manco's. It is an online document and to walk through the
different databases is easy. The way it is build is so easy, that even I
will be able now to use the idea to document other information of systems of
the databases to the administrators. Another thanks for that.
Just what to say thanks for the Ora Snap software.
I tried to build a similarly system some time back but I did not manager to get as far as you have.
These scripts are fantastik.
Keep up the GOOD work.
I'm going to try it out. From the looks of snap8.sql, you've put a lot of work into this tool.
Thanks, Stewart, for ORASNAP, a wonderful and very useful utility for a new Oracle DBA!
-Lise A. McLean
I just started using OraSnap and I think it is awesome!
Thanks a lot. What I appreciate most is the distribution of the source code, it's great to be able
to alter things get at the guts of it.
-Brian Carignan, OCP
OraSnap is great. You are THE MAN!
A very nice tool to look all at one time. I greatly appreciate for your great efforts
to bring such a tool to public. Thanks a bunch.
Thanks for providing a useful and well-written product.
Good stuff. More grease to your elbows.
You must be a "roboDBA"! I can't even keep my script in order, let alone generate html pages.
GREAT TOOL! The script alone are worth the price of the download.
I will share with other dba's in my group.
Great product.Keep it up and God Bless you.
This is a great tool and a terrific learning tool - thanks for including a
view of the SQL used in the queries.
First of all, I wanted to let you know this is a really neat tool. It really
organizes the collection and reporting of key oracle performance and operability related reports.
I would like to thank you for providing a tool like orasnap. The new version
of orasnap is very good. I was thinking to write some SQL script so that I will have system
statistics. But when I saw this tool, I changed my mind and now I am planning to use it.
This is a cool tool - Thanks
I am very impress with ORASNAP. It is an excellent tool for a DB snapshot.
This is a cool tool - Thanks
This is a great product.. we tried v1.1 and liked it now you have something much better.. Great work keep
it up.. By the way do you know that we Oracle Corporation empolyees also use this to
help with our day to day work!!!!
Congratulation on a fine product to help the DBA's of the world. I hope this was a college project and you
got an A+. Pat yourself on the back and feel proud.
Orasnap is an excellent piece of work !!! Keep it up.
Just thought I'd say first that I love the product (even though I only got it yesterday).
Thanks for a wonderful tool, I've recommended to all of my DBA/Developers
colleague to use and learn this great tool.
Hi there - just tried orasnap - great looking product!
The software is excellent . This is useful for all levels of DBA's. Thanks a lot.
Hope to have more & more good Utilites designed like this.
I've just installed oraSnap. I like it. Very nice. Well done.
I enjoyed your program and it is very easy to use.
OraSnap is a great tool - especially the notes that accompany the scripts - and helped me learn DBA stuff.
I'm a webmaster now, so my interaction with Oracle has come down considerably. Even then, to get quick
idea of existing databases, I find the scripts which you've compiled more useful than Oracle's EM.
Let me congratulate you on Orasnap, I have found it extremely useful.
Another addition to the DBA arsenal.
Outstanding! Thank you Stewart for creatng OraSnap. its is very handy... very cool...
I finally got a chance to look at OraSnap. That's some great work you did! Very creative implementation, too.
I like it.
The software is excellent . This is useful for all levels of DBA's. Thanks a lot.
Love your product!! The html output is so nice! Thanks for a great FREE product!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just wanted to let you know that I have tried this tool out and
it is great! I have a whole directory full of similar scripts, but
this tool puts them all together in a wonderful HTML layout that is
really, really easy to view! Excellent job! As a DBA consultant,
this tool has proved very useful when visiting a client site for the
first time and/or a site that has a problem. I can take it on a diskette,
run it against a database and have an immediate HTML output. Love it!
I now use OraSnap quite extensively in my consulting assignments,
supplementing/replacing the material I have used for years. Your HTML
interface is really great! Thanks!
Excellent set of scripts - really appreciate the use as it will make
my life a little easier.
Just used OraSnap 1.3 written by u and could not resist thanking u for
the excellent product. Regards and wish u a wonderful New Year and hope
to see OraSnap grow by leaps and bounds in the new millenneium.
-J R Kumar
I've downloaded OraSnap and find it a useful tool. Clean install, simple
interface. Nicely done.
Great tool! I have a few monitor scripts that do much
of the same, but they do not present the info via html
-- again, great tool.
I wanted to congratulate you on a great DBA tool, I think OraSnap will come
in very handy for me.
I downloaded OraSnap yesterday and I feel as though I just found the pot of gold
at the end of the rainbow. You did a really great job.
This is a really cool utility. Its by far the best free tool I've ever
-David K. Whisler
Sincere congratulations and thanks a lot for your professional and
Neat tool. Information about the database is presented in a comprehensive way.
I just wanted to say that your OraSnap program is the best all-inclusive
tool that I've seen since I started working with Oracle! The format,
design and information is very useful and very much appreciated!
This is great tool for DBA's. Congrats for the work done.
-Phani K Sikharam
I monitor a few Databases and have been looking for a tool that does
exactly what OraSnap. What a great tool!
I am new to DBA land and I am impressed with your code. Kudos to you and
thank you for making it freeware.
Great set of scripts and the notes rock! I made a PHP version using
these scripts and notes and now with a webserver with PHP compiled, you can
generate the output online. I'll make a downloadable zip file soon at
Thank you for the awesome Oracle DBA tools. It makes DBA jobs
easier to gather and analyze Oracle performance.
OraSnap is one of the best utilities ( if not the best !! ) I have ever seen.
As a consultant and Oracle trainer, with the usual kitbag of scripts
written and plaguarised by myself over the last 10 years, this is the
first tool I have ever seen which makes me feel like throwing them all
away !! Good luck with your on going development and thanks a lot.
Just a quick note to say thanks for this marvellous application. It's useful
to me in that you provide suggestions as well as stats, it makes things more meaningful.
I believe that it will help me out when preparing for my OCP tuning exam.
I have just used your OraSnap util. My congratulations on possibly one of
the most useful pieces of Oracle kit I've played with in ages. I couldn't
believe that such a simple idea could be put such devastating use.
I have had the various scripts you describe floating around my "script bag"
but they are always a nightmare to find, and usually need adjusting for the current instance.
Your only mistake is not getting people to pay for this!!!
Many thanks, for proving that the simplest idea is usually the best!
All the best for the future.
Congratulations for this wonderful software and thank you for distributing it gratuitously!
Your software is great.(CONGRATULATIONS).
-Francisco Martinez Oviedo
It is absolutely fabulous. I love the results and the idea. Thanks.
I downloaded OraSnap today and I am immensely impressed. A huge WELL DONE! to you.
-Bernard van Aalst
This is a really great tool which helps making things easier every day.
Thank you for giving this tool away as freeware. By the way: It even works on a
Oracle 7.1.4-Database (this is the oldest one in our "collection"). If it is possible
I would appreciate to get the latest news by email. If not, no matter I will bookmark this page.
Best regards and greetings from germany.
I would like to compliment you on the fine job that you have done with
'orasnap'. I have been using it for a little while now. Thanks
I downloaded OraSnap. It's a nice way to get the various scripts in a
browser. Nice going. Thanks for the program, and putting it on the web.
A very cool tool - I'm looking forward to using it. I especially like the
explanations of various parameters, counters, etc on the bottom of the right
frame (I'm a DBA, but I'm always learning). The only downside that I can
see is that, unless I'm mistaken (and I very well might be) you can only use this
on one database at a time. Anyway, thanks for app - a very interesting approach.
I'm looking forward to perusing the source.
Thats definitely an incredible amount of info, thanks a bunch.
This is an excellent tool!! Thanks for sharing. Thanks
Its Great tool. Thanks a lot. Cheers!
Even though a lot of ppeople already told you so:
your tool is great, especially for someone like me who is actually a
developer and not a born DBA who has to do DBA work as well.
Thanks a lot.
Great tool!!! Thanks Stewart
Thank you for the utility. I've just started using it, but it looks great!
This is very nice. You've put some thought and work into this and it shows.
My colleagues were equally impressed.
After reviewing the scripts to make sure they were not going to destroy my
database, I ran the SNAP8.SQL against a scrap database on my NT box. The
output of this script is great. I too am a consultant and move from client
to client, this will be an excellent addition to my toolset. Thanks,
I took a quick look at what I thought might be a "simple little utility". I
was not prepared for what I saw on your sample page! I feel like I've
walked into Utopia or something!
I tried OraSnap - its really great.
