Get your licenses for Oracle AWR

The Oracle Store now has online purchase to get licenses to the Automatic Workload Repository.  Many Oracle professionals assume that because AWR is built-in to the Oracleg kernel that they can access the dba_hist tables without buying the extra-cost license.

The Oracle documentation notes that there are some tables that do not require a license to query (as audited in the dba_feature_usage_statistics table).

"All data dictionary views beginning with the prefix DBA_HIST_ are part of this pack, along with their underlying tables.  The only exception are the views: DBA_HIST_SNAPSHOT, DBA_HIST_DATABASE_INSTANCE, DBA_HIST_SNAP_ERROR, DBA_HIST_SEG_STAT, DBA_HIST_SEG_STAT_OBJ, and DBA_HIST_UNDOSTAT. They can be used without the Diagnostic Pack license."

See the Oracle official price list (PDF) for the exact costs of an AWR license.


Oracle Database Diagnostic Pack is a $5,000  extra-cost option, and you must also have a license to access the Oracle10g AWR and ADDM components.  This includes AWR (Automatic Workload Repository), the dbms_workload_repository package, the awrrpt.sql and awrrpti.sql reports, any of the dba_hist and v$active_session_history views, ADDM - Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor, and all dba_advisor views.

Key Product Features

  • Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor

  • Automatic Workload Repository

  • Rich Performance Monitoring and Alerting

  • Blackouts and administrator scheduling
