AWR Warehouse, Status

So the AWR Warehouse patches are out, but documentation has not officially caught up to it yet, so as we appreciate your patience.  I thought I would post about what I went over in my webinar last week when I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to the ODTUG members on this feature that everyone is so anxious to get their hands on.

Let’s start with some of the top questions:

1. Can I (more...)

AWR Warehouse Webinar from ODTUG

The webinar is over, but you haven’t missed out on everything I presented on the console feature, under the hood and behind the scenes!

You can access the slides from today’s presentation, as I’ve uploaded them to slideshare and the scripts are easy to locate on the scripts page here on DBAKevlar.

Thanks to everyone who attended and a big thanks to GP for doing the introduction and ODTUG for hosting us! :)

Tuning EM12c, the OMS, Part II

We went over a few of the Java “tuning” options last time, so let’s go onto the OMS tier for this post.

Location, Location, Location

High latency issues between the OMS(Service) and the OMR, (Repository) when separated by geographical location is common.  It’s important when designing the Enterprise Manager environment that you keep your OMS hosts close to the repository hosts geo-locationally.  Your agents can be global, with minor network considerations, but the (more...)

Tuning EM12c- Onto the Next Tier, JAVA

I’ve already talked about the recommendations we make for properly sizing an Enterprise Manager 12c and many already know about tuning a database, but let’s look at the tuning that may be a bit foreign to DBAs.  We’ll start with Java.

We all know that it’s part of the EM12c architecture, but we often don’t realize that it requires attention to assist in Enterprise Manager running efficiently.

Note Pro 12.2 Review- Officially Drove Me to Apple!

I am a long time supporter of Samsung products- I’ve always had Samsung phones, (currently a Note 3 owner…) Samsung TVs, monitors and even have a Samsung microwave and refrigerator. I love Samsung products and this has included my tablets, recently deciding to upgrade my Samsung Note 10.1, (original) for a Samsung Note Pro 12.2.

I have nothing against Apple/Mac products. I think they are great, but I’m a long time user of (more...)

EM12c Release 4, Private Roles

Until OEM11g, it was very common that all folks were either Super Administrators or Administrators and only a few shops took the time to create roles outside of these two essential roles.  Super Administrator, (SA) was pretty straight forward-  the SA had essentially the same access as the repository owner and should only be allocated to those that should have this deep access to the Enterprise Manager environment, but administrator access was more of (more...)

EM12c and Hardware

I often hear, “My EM12c environment is slow!” and I just as often am granted access to the environment and find out that EVERYTHING is running on an old single core server with 2Gb of RAM someone found lying around.  Enterprise Manager is often an after thought to many IT organizations.  After all the work has gone into the production environments that build revenue, there is often a disconnect on how important (more...)

KSCOPE 2014, Seattle!

Just a blog post on the great conference coming up at the end of the month from ODTUG, KSCOPE 2014.  The conference will be held in Seattle, Washington this year, (yeah, look forward to cooler temperatures than last year in New Orleans KSCOPE 2013… :))

I’ll be heading up the Database Track and the Women in Technology, (WIT) luncheon this year again for the conference and I recommend you don’t miss out!

EM12c Rel. 4, the Security Console

Why is the Security Console an important new feature?  I was contacted by three people just this last week on how to secure an EM12c environment.  How many of you are still logging in to the EM12c console or CLI with the SYSMAN account?

Bad DBA, BAD!!  :)

The Security Console helps the administrator set clear expectations for security standards for database administration and EM12c environment security.  It provides read (more...)

The *New and Improved* Extensibility Exchange is Here!

How many of you use Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, recognize it can do so much more than just taking it out of the box and plugging it in, then proceed to start building metric extensions, plug-ins, writing EM CLI scripts, etc? How cool would it be if you could peruse a library of plug-ins to support the extensibility framework for you to check out and use for the benefit of your company and you?
