How To Find Out If TFA Is Installed And If So Which Version

TFA (Trace File Analyzer) is a very useful tool, mainly used by Oracle support, although we can always use it to extract information from a system. I also recommend taking a look at the information it contains. I am currently updating to the latest version of TFA so I post this post as an aid for those who do not know and also as a reminder for me.

To know if it is installed (in this case Solaris 11, varies depending on the platform);

Grep TFA_HOME = /etc/init.d/init.tfa

He would return something similar to this;

TFA_HOME = / app / oracle / grid / 121 / tfa / node-1 / tfa_home

If it is installed, then to know what version we have;

Export TFA_HOME = / app / oracle / grid / 121 / tfa / node-1 / tfa_home
$ TFA_HOME / bin / tfactl print status

I will return something like this


.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| Host | Status of TFA | PID | Port | Version | Build ID | Inventory Status |
+----------+---------------+------+------+------------+----------------------+------------------+
| node-1 | RUNNING | 1834 | 5000 | 12.1.2.7.0 | 12127020160304140533 | COMPLETE |
| node-2 | RUNNING | 1810 | 5000 | 12.1.2.7.0 | 12127020160304140533 | COMPLETE |
'----------+---------------+------+------+------------+----------------------+------------------'
