I've recently installed Oracle Grid control 10G to monitor a number of
db instances which is working well.

My manager is currently setting up a system that will include various
Key Performance Inidcators for oracle based systems e.g. uptime etc.

He's requesting whether I can provide the raw data for these metrics
in a spreadsheet so he can manipulate the data himself. I've looked at
the standard reports in Grid and everything seems to be geared towards
on-screen graphs etc.

I'm not overly enthused about using sql directly to interrogate the
apps dba itself, so wondering if anywbody has come across any other
means to extract metric data directly in tabular form.

Thanks in anticipation
