otop , a 'top' utility for Oracle
I recently discovered that someone else is publishing some Perl utilities to monitor Oracle!
I've been using Perl to get things done with Oracle for a while and have found it extremely helpful. The current environment that I work in has a mixture of OSes so sometimes its easier to install Perl and DBI everywhere and write a simple Perl Script than to try to do something in DOS Batch for one client and then do it again in a bash shell script for another.
Sean Hull published a video of his talk about otop, the PowerPoint slides, and the downloadable source on his company's site:

If you are familiar with the Unix 'top' command, you will see what Sean is getting at with 'otop' script. I think its a fantastic idea. Seeing this work by Sean has compelled me to clean up some examples I've worked on and publish them on ba6.us over the next few weeks.
