Enterprise Manager and Services, Part I

The term “Service” is used to represent numerous objects within Enterprise Manager 12c.  Although the most common reference to the term is related to the Oracle Management Service, (OMS), in this blog post, we are going to drill down and refer to all services identified in the drop down menu from Targets, Management Services and Repository.

The two main services we are going to cover here are set up as part of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12.1.0. (more...)

Rittman Mead’s Development Cluster, EM12c and the Blue Mendora VMware EM Plugin

For development and testing purposes, Rittman Mead run a VMWare VSphere cluster made up of a number of bare-metal servers hosting Linux, Windows and other VMs. Our setup has grown over the years from a bunch of VMs running on Mac Mini servers to where we are now, and was added-to considerably over the past twelve months as we started Hadoop development – a typical Cloudera CDH deployment we work with requires six or more (more...)

AWR Warehouse and SYSDBA

I’ve had a few folks ask me a similar question about the AWR Warehouse, occuring numerous times this week.

“How can I limit what the user of the AWR Warehouse can view in the AWR Warehouse?”

“How can I add source databases to the AWR Warehouse without DBA privileges?”

This topic bridges into the area of confusion of use of the EM12c environment, (which I consistently promote for use by DBAs, Developers (more...)

Why Automate Target Patching with Enterprise Manager 12c

Every job comes with tasks that no one likes to perform and database administration is no exception.  Patching is one of those necessary tasks that must be performed and when we are expected to do more with less everyday, the demands of patching another host, another agent, another application is often a task that no one looks forward to.  It’s not that it goes wrong, but that it’s just tedious and many DBAs (more...)

2014 Year in Review

Cloud Control Agent 12c managing many objects

An Oracle Enterprise Management Agent 12c that has to manage hundreds of objects needs extra tweaking. If not, it will not start, or it will die soon, leaving you with an unmanaged infrastructure.

Situation

The customer runs over 200 databases on 1 host. Intel bases host with 384GB RAM and over 4TB of storage. Linux OS. Works as a charm.

Compliance and File Monitoring in EM12c

I was recently asked to help a customer set up File Monitoring in Enterprise Manager and I thought since I haven’t blogged in a while, this could be a good way to start back up again..
Enterprise manager 12c provides a very nice Compliance and File Monitoring Framwork. There are many Built in Frameworks include for PCI DSS and STIG but this How-to will only focus on a custom file monitoring framework.

How To Set EAR Upload Size for Oracle Enterprise Manager

By default, there is a limit for EAR upload size (~40 MB) in Enterprise Manager. If your ADF application is fairly big, you may face this limitation and will not be able to deploy through Enterprise Manager. Deployment for large EAR would work through WebLogic console, WLST script or directly from JDEV, however sometimes you may need to deploy through Enterprise Manager. I will describe in this post, how you could increase the limit - (more...)

EM12c Management Agent, OutOfMemoryError and Ulimits

While enjoying the lovely Liverpool, UK weather at Tech14 with UKOUG, (just kidding about that weather part and apologies to the poor guy who asked me the origin of “Kevlar” which in my pained, sleep-deprived state I answered with a strange, long-winded response…. :)) a customer contacted me in regards to a challenge he was experiencing starting an agent on a host that was home to 100’s of targets.

I was notified some time back that one of them had been accepted (Snap Clone) and one shortlisted (more...)

The User Group Tour

Those of you that have been around Oracle for some time may already be aware of the various OTN tours. These tours bring well known speakers to some of the smaller (relatively speaking) regions that often don’t get to see some of the big name speakers, simply because of audience size. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been involved in the OTN APAC tour, and recently returned from the New Zealand leg of the (more...)
