Method R Workbench 9.2 adds bug fixes and exciting new features to 9.1. The application now runs on any version of Java at or greater than Java SE 8. We have replaced the muddy zebra-striping in the files pane and the HTML5 output with a cleaner, more elegant, Tufte-inspired three-row banding method. Table headers in the HTML5 output are now sticky, which means they always remain conveniently in view, regardless of how many rows a table has (it’s especially convenient for analyzing long execution plans). And the Workbench application takes less time to start up in this release, especially when you’ve been working with lots of trace files.
Method R Trace 21.2 is ready for Oracle SQL Developer 21.2. We’ve created a whole-new, even more efficient design for Method R Trace, where all the commonly-used controls are now on the toolbar. We’ve added a new STATISTICS_LEVEL control on the Preferences page, and we’ve simplified the process of creating the Oracle Database objects required by the product.
Method R Workbench 9.1 adds bug fixes and exciting new features to 9.0. New audio feedback makes it easier to know when reports finish, reorganized menus add features and make things easier to find, new copy and paste capability makes it easier to pull data from the files pane into reports and emails, and new Select › Inverse feature makes it easier to manage lots of files.
Oracle trace files give you incredibly rich, high-resolution performance information, but tracing creates so… much… data. You can’t possibly manage it all without great tools. Method R Workbench 9 makes working with trace data quick and easy, even if you’re staring down thousands of trace files.
Method R Trace 19.2 is ready for Oracle SQL Developer 19.2. It adds undo to the Clear button, eliminates the confusion over license key entry, and fixes a pesky bug that prevented you from seeing Oracle session attributes in your trace files.
Method R Workbench 8.1.0 optimizes working with thousands of files at once. Now you can load folder objects from your Finder/Explorer application. Loading files is fast and now clutter-free in the output pane. One of our tests loads (which includes profiling) over 5,000 trace files (about 5GB) in just over five minutes. A new “Copy selected file rows to output” button pushes selected data from the files pane to the output pane, where you can access it easily with copy and paste. The new Help › Open Diagnostics menu option makes it easier to get support for the application.
Today we celebrate the release of Method R Trace version 18.2. Method R Trace is our zero-click trace file collector for Oracle SQL Developer. Version 18.2 is the follow-up to version 3.1, which has served us well since 2015.
Method R Workbench 8.0 brings you an all-new application that integrates the Method R Profiler and Method R Tools utilities into a unified tool for supporting your trace file analysis workflow. Loading a file in the Workbench application now automatically profiles it and makes dozens of pre-packaged reports available to you with just a click. It’s the world’s first application designed to make it easy to manipulate hundreds of trace files in one place.
Method R Profiler is a software tool for measuring Oracle user response times. Version 6 is our biggest upgrade in ten years. You’re going to love what we’ve done.
