This article explains what kind of data the add-on collects and how it processes the data.
Matrix42 Oracle Compliance add-on collects and inventories the information about operating systems, CPU resources, hardware models, etc.
Oracle Database product installations and usage
Databases are detected automatically during the data collection. All relevant information is gathered and imported. Based on the database query results, the data is analyzed for each one of Oracle's commercial Options and Packs. The add-on checks if they are installed and granted/agreed and if a licensable usage could be determined.
The evidence is made transparent in the UI
Partitioning policy compliance checks
Each system is examined for the usage of virtualization or partitioning policies. The configurations are checked for compliance with Oracle’s Partitioning Policy. For each system it is stated whether it is regarded as hard or soft partitioned.
License requirements are generated taking into account the partitioning information.
