The stand-alone client on Windows still has ALMOST all of the administrative functionality that was available in 9i. What I like about 10g is that the monitoring out-of-the-box is better. In 9i I had to configure everything.

I disagree with you that 10g is "much better than 9i ever was".

Cost of installation and support on *me* is 100% higher. Usability is at best much much worse.

They took a perfectly good product for DBA's and transformed it into a monster to try and capture an overall systems monitoring market. This is a perfect example of Oracle overstepping what they do best - which is RDBMS software.

The features of a web based system are so much worse than a simply JAVA window. Have you tried to simply look at two schemas in different databases at the same time? Can't be done with 10g. And the response time to bring up a screen is horrible.

Not even close to beiung better than the 9i version.

That is why in 10g they took the word "Intelligent" out of the name. 10g is much better than 9i ever was. The clearstate is not a regular necessity.

I have to ask, where is the "intelligence" in "intelligent agent"? Why do the agents so often get out of synch with reality? Will 11g, or any other future releases, "fix" this problem?

Well thanks to all from this list, I solved my problem with Patrick's suggestion.

The clearstate solution seemed to solve my problem.

Thanks all for your help!

something that is not there. Is there a simple way of sending an "ack" to this thing so it wakes up and checks again?
