Toad for Oracle is very well suited for all Oracle implementations, be it single instance or RAC. It is best suited for use of Oracle DBA, Developer and Database Engineers. I don't recommend Toad for Oracle for Project Managers or Solution Architects. This can be a pricier choice for these people. They can do fine with free options like SQL Developer.

Pros
Percona
  • Measure the time and performance of queries made in a database
  • Integration with tools like Prometheus with the aim of storing information based on time
  • Monitor our databases in the cloud, as well as optimize the performance of the database, improving the usability of customer applications

Quest
  • Toad is a de-facto standard tool for data developers and analysts. Generally speaking it provides almost every function needed to manage data in EDW with great performance and stability.
  • The nature of clinical data is big-sized: one table may have billions of rows. Toad provides critical functions to manage SQLs, e.g. Top SQL that can monitor and manage SQLs using CPU power and network bandwidth, so that EDW administrator can optimize ETL operations in the best efficiency.
  • Many of our data analysts are not computer science backgrounded (having clinical / nursing background). Toad provides great auditing tools such as Tuning Lab or SQL Scanner, so that data analysts can train themselves with guidance of the tool.

Cons
Percona
  • Sometimes it creates problems while serving a huge number of servers but I am sure its efficient team will overcome this problem soon and with its rapid advancements there will surely be more latest and advanced alerting options.
  • Truly speaking this is a great invention with very few shortcomings. I never face any dependency issues.

Quest
  • The power and control it gives is at the same time kind of a negative thing. There's too many options available, even when you don't need them. For simple database operations it's sometimes easier to just use SQL Developer since navigation is way more intuitive and easy.
  • Related with the above: there is a steep learning curve. However, since this is the main tool for any Oracle developer, this is not that much of a problem.
  • If I remember well, Toad used to be free, some 20 years ago. Or at least had a free version. It would be nice to have a free version. The dedicated Oracle developers and DBA's won't use the free version, but all the rest of us developers might use it instead of SQL Developer. It would make communications between everybody somewhat easier.

I am using PMM for a long time now and the Dashboard provides a great overview for general server health and law. You get to watch if there are many queries when you get a problem. Time-based analysis for MySQL and MongoDB servers to confirm that your data works as efficiently as possible. We could improve database performance significantly.

I give is an 8 because nothing is a 10 and there is always room for improvement. I believe the user who is not as technologically inclined would be better suited with an easier way to identify the options for setting the layout up for Toad's GUI. To some it is very cumbersome and confusing.

Percona has a history of being good at providing really informative materials in form of blog post, documentation, webinars or conference presentations. T is also true to the Percona Monitoring and Management, you can find excellent source of information on their site or on the forum. Support tickets are also handled well.

I give the overall support for Toad for Oracle a 10/10. This is because whenever there has been an issue with this software, our team has got an immediate response. The same can not be said for similar software. The most recent example of this is when we needed to renew our licenses. Some employees were unable to log in to code with the given license key. Support was able to resolve the issue quickly.

Vividcortex is nice but is costly.
Datadog loses for me on the UI front and, of course, it will be a charged product.
Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) has been best blend of technologies and is supported by the Percona community very well.

Toad is much better than Tableau query writer. Tableau is not intuitive and requires knowledge of proprietary database language to fully implement. Tableau does not perform as quickly and accurately as Toad. Toad is very easy and slim to install. Additional hardware is often required to run Tableau smoothly. Support for Tableau is even more expensive than Toad support.

  • Quick and easy query development helps reduce man-hours in a project which converts to real dollars.
  • Query analysis and tuning result in low database overhead and low latency, thus translating into real dollars because a system can thus handle more requests from customers.
  • Ease of use makes it easy to deploy greenhorns in projects with minimal training, thus helping save money. Otherwise menial and simple jobs would have required experienced DBAs.
