Is anyone using the automated tuning feature to perform their database tuning? If so have you encountered any issues with it?
Does it take longer than performing manual tuning?
Please share any advice or comments you have on manual or automated tuning and your experiences with it.
Base don my own experience, automated db tuning works fine.
However we still see the requirement or running a manual purge every now and then (2-3 months) to keep the db size within limits
Apologies for the (very) delayed response.
We've had 50-60GB databases going down to 15GB after manual purge with tuning. The process takes about an hour or a bit more depending on how big is the db when starting.
