SQL Dashboard – V2

Filed under: Exadata, RAC — Jagjeet Singh @ 12:58 am

Quick Post – I had some fun last weekend with SQL Dashboard, thought it deserves a post. As you can see in attached video now dashboard supports wait graph in colors directly from SQL*Plus  🙂  wait a minute

Well, we all know sql*plus does not support colors, However, I could simulate that using Iterm2 (Mac terminal client) by assigning colors to specific legends.

I have received several emails to make code compatible with 10g, unfortunately it is not possible due to dependency on 11g dictionaries. I have fixed several bugs and publishing 11g R2 and 11g R1 version.

Only noticeable enhancement is graph with wait events.



  1. […] Singh mentioned that he has built a V2 of his cool SQL Dashboard sqlplus-based monitoring script, which now also shows a nice colored ASH graph output. Yes, right […]

  12. Sql Dashboard can also be used for single instance if GV$ views are installed. Can be installed by running catclustdb.sql on single instance.

  14. Hi,

    I am trying to run your tool but output seems all messed up…

    is there a setting that i need to set from SQLPLUS standpoint to get output like you have in the video?

    i tried different line size and that didnt helped either…

  15. Hi Max-

    Yes, there is setting. I apologies for not giving clear information here.

    1- you can download the latest one which I haven’t blogged as still working for some corner cases.


    in above zip, there is file named jhelp which tells example how to set various parameters. In nut-shell you have to set the *arraysize* at sql prompt equal to what value we pass to package.

    See below example – you can see “50” as number of lines were passed. reduce or increase based on your resolution.

    ## With All Defaults Values — Sample=6 Secs , Colors=Background Color, Default 3 Sysmetrics
    SET LINESIZE 5000 pagesize 0 Arraysize 50 TAB OFF

    If you need further information/help, please reach out to me on jagjeet.malhi@gmail.com. Would be happy to work with you.
