In Enterprise Manager 12c, there was a little known functionality where you could check what management packs you needed to be licensed for to use a particular page in Enterprise Manager. I referred to it many times at conferences I was presenting at, and almost always people did not realize the functionality existed. Let’s see how this works.
To start with, I’m going to go to the Performance Home page for a particular database (accessed (more...)
For those of you that have been wondering why I’ve been so quiet of recent times, it’s because my wife and I took advantage of a trip to England for UKOUG in December to spend nearly 5 weeks touring around Europe (2 weeks of which was spent river cruising from Amsterdam to Budapest with the fabulous APT river cruises, something I can HIGHLY recommend if you want to see Europe!). But while I (more...)
Recently a customer asked if it was possible to promote unmanaged targets automatically without any interaction. They were already using auto-discovery.
The answer is yes, and of course as soon as you see words like “without any interaction” you know there’s going to be scripting involved. In the Enterprise Manager world, scripting is handled by the EM Command Line Interface, better known as EMCLI. I’ve posted some example scripts of using EMCLI a while back (more...)
Since 12c when debugging or looking at flow instances in the Enterprise Manager, we have to use the search button to make the flow instances appear. By default the following text is being displayed: 'Conduct a search to display the list of message flows across SOA composites in the SOA Infrastructure'.
When you open the search bar on the right pane and click search, the instances of the last 24 hours are being displayed:
Well, another Oracle Open World has bit the dust, and as is always the case, there was a lot of great material presented, both by Oracle employees and customers. To help you identify the material and get your hands on the presentations where possible, I’ve taken a stab at grouping all the material together into sections. These are the areas the presenters identified the material as covering, so if the title doesn’t seem to match (more...)
During the installation of Oracle Grid Infrastructure 18.104.22.168 you had the option to install the Grid Infrastructure Management Repository (GIMR) database MGMTDB. With 22.214.171.124, that option went away, and the MGMTDB database became mandatory. Given that it’s a database, the question of whether it should be monitored by Enterprise Manager was raised by a number of customers, and unfortunately a variety of different answers were forthcoming from different sources (more...)
I’ve seen a lot of interesting posts about what’s going to be presented next week at OOW15, and I’ve blogged about those specific to Enterprise Manager previously – see the links Private Cloud and DBLM, Database Manageability and Middleware Management for more detail. But some people have come to me and said “There are so many sessions to go to for Oracle Open World, can you identify the must see session for what’s happening (more...)
This posting covers the Middleware Management sessions at OOW2015. Note that these are middleware management via Enterprise Manager, as opposed to sessions specifically covering middleware features and functions. Also, I have not duplicated here sessions I have already documented under Oracle Management Cloud or Private Cloud / DBLM, so please visit those posts for sessions that fall under both categories. The following sessions fall under this category:
- The Management of Identity and Access: Breaches, (more...)
This posting covers the Database Manageability sessions at OOW2015. Note that these are database manageability via Enterprise Manager, as opposed to sessions specifically covering database features and functions. The following sessions fall under this category:
- Risk-Free Administration for Expert Database Administrators [CON9725] October 26, 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm | Moscone South—104 – The SPA Quick Check, SQL Performance Analyzer, Database Replay, and Concurrent Replay features in Oracle Real Application Testing provide a cost-effective and (more...)
Yesterday I posted an entry on what was coming with OOW2015, specifically discussing the Oracle Management Cloud sessions. This post is similar but looking at one of the more “traditional” EM areas that my team is responsible for – Private Cloud and DBLM. The sessions that are of most interest here are:
- Hybrid Cloud Management Using Oracle Exalogic [CON9744] October 26, 11:00 am – 11:45 am | Intercontinental—Intercontinental B (5th Floor) – The latest version (more...)
Hard as it is to believe, yet again it is time for the biggest Oracle conference on the planet (or any other planet for that matter!) Yes, OOW2015 is just around the corner! Unfortunately I won’t be there this year, as I have my eldest daughter’s wedding shortly after it, but nevertheless having seen what’s coming up from the Enterprise Manager side of the house, there are a few sessions I can certainly recommend.
