I saw Richard Byrom's post on his blog a few days ago and made a note to take a look at it. The post is titled "Oracle Diagnostics Support Pack and the Applications Collection Tool (ACT)
". Whilst I am not an Oracle E-Business Suite expert and this post by Richard is not security related I am still interested mainly because I like to know about diagnostics tools and anything that can be used to analyse an application or database. Richard points out "Iíve found it an invaluable tool to check applications setups, compare setups between different instances/environments and diagnose specific problems with a particular module or process"
This is an important aspect of any security set up, that is to ensure that a database and application's configuration does not change. To ensure that it does not change you need to monitor it.
