Oracle Alerts: Oracle Alerts are used to monitor unusual or critical activity within a designated database. The flexibility of ALERTS allows a database administrator the ability to monitor activities from tablespace sizing to activities associated with particular applications (i.e. AP, GL, FA). Alerts can be created to monitor a process in the database and to notify a specific individual of the status of the process.
Oracle Triggers: Oracle lets you define procedures called triggers that run implicitly when an INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statement is issued against the associated table or, in some cases, against a view, or when database system actions occur. You can write triggers that fire whenever one of the following operations occurs:
- Alert Code can be modified and viewed in a screen
- Periodic alert is not possible through Database trigger
- Oracle Alert will also transfer your entire alert definition across databases. You can instantly leverage the work done in one area to all your systems.
- Customizable Alert Frequency with Oracle Alert, you can choose the frequency of each periodic alert. You may want to check some alerts every day, some only once a month, still others only when you explicitly request them.
