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 upgrade from 12.1.0.2 to 12.1.0.3

Now that Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 3 (aka EM12cR3!) has been out for a few weeks, I decided to brave it and upgrade our Production stack today. In this post, I’ll be upgrading an EM12cR2 (12.1.0.2) installation which consists of two OMSes, running (more...)

Automatically purging OMS log and trace files in EM12c

Enterprise Manager Oracle Management Server (OMS) installations generate huge amounts of log and trace files under the covers these days, and although the logs are rotated out-of-the-box, they’re not automatically deleted.  Over time (as I was reminded again today ), these logs can amount to a large portion of your (more...)

But this upgrade requires considerable downtime. Oracle has termed this upgrade [...]

ORA-00942 Querying Tablespaces from Enterprise Manager

In order to meet the minimum security requirements, the SYSTEM user use must be restricted, only the actual DBA must have access to it. Other users requiring access to Enterprise Manager to monitor and "view" must be granted especific minimum privileges.
The SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE and the CONNECT roles are good enough to see most of the E.M. contents, but when trying to access the Tablespaces page from Enterprise Manager the ORA-00942 error shows up.
When tracing I discovered the query used to fill up the Tablespaces Page:

SELECT /*+first_rows */ d.tablespace_name, NVL(a.bytes / 1024 / 1024, 0), DECODE(d. (more...)

Tablespace 195% Full … must be the metric system

I was recently refreshing a test database with production data (using datapump if anyone cares) and had forgotten to check the tablespace sizes between prod and test. During the load, I obviously ran out of space. A quick check in prod showed I needed 4GB of space. The test tablespace was set to grow to 2GB max. To add space, I performed a simple command to add the space.

ALTER DATABASE DATAFILE '/u01/oracle/data01/blah.dbf' RESIZE 8GB;


I resumed the datapump and went on my merry way. A few minutes later I received an email from Grid Control that the tablespace (more...)
