Please enumerate what problems were pinpointed by Spotlight?
Everything what i can say is that we use Oracle on Intranet and Internet solutions and we found Spotlight very helpfull for Oracle Database monitoring and potential problem solving. It is good product with many features and many informations presented in good looking GUI.
Look... try to download and install the evaluation of this product and check all functionality...
For us, Spotlight for Oracle is a good "management" tool but we didn't use it do any performance tuning. In other words, it gives management-types a pretty face to the statistics and/or problems with the database; for DBA's it falls short in giving the information you need to tune.
The product has recently been phased out by Quest in favor for another product called Quest Central. This product does seem to have more of what a DBA could use such as actual stats, but it retains the front end of Spotlight.
