Oracle Enterprise Manager Valuable Features

Team Lead - Oracle Applications DBA at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees

The 13cR3-PG (Patch Group) 1 updates to the OEM family, strongly integrate Cloud (off-site, hybrid and on-premise) services providing a seamless way to see all of your resources regardless of where they are deployed.

PG1 adds enhancements for EMCLI (Command Line Interface) extensions to allow additional automation and scripting of common OEM tasks (Blackout begin/end, Patch availability monitoring, cloning enhancements.)

Of the 12c series of Oracle Enterprise Manager products, version introduces Cloud (both public and private) support for both monitoring, and lifecycle management. This allows individual components, or entire systems to be resident either in-house on conventional hardware/VM's, or ported into virtualized datacenter environments, off-site, whether for fault tolerance and disaster recovery, or simply to reduce the cost of non-Production systems by using a pay-to-play methodology (reducing investment in specific hardware just to support disposable and transitional software systems development?) Consolidated and uniform monitoring of all Oracle-related technologies. Ability to enable centralized control and administration of Oracle products from a single console. Ability to see at a glance, all conditions of all products throughout the enterprise. Version 13c includes hybrid cloud support making transparent the transfer of provisioning systems between Oracle's Cloud and on-premise equipment. All of the cloud systems and in-house systems appear in logical groups according to their common function (Applications, Middleware, Databases, etc.) The configurations are also snapshot-friendly and made comparable to quickly isolate differences between similar systems.

In the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) based Oracle Management Cloud (OMC) 1.48.0 you have many subscription-based options, like Log Analytics and Application Performance Management that you can activate quickly, try them on for size, and keep them or decomission them for relatively less cost and time than doing so, on-premises. These features also avail you access to technologies requiring higher horsepower (CPU/RAM/etc.) found in the OCI Exadata-based Virtual Machines (VMs) that may be beyond your current investment level.

It's a useful feature to be able to see the top SQL, the number of executions, the CPU, and the resources that it's using.

Also, being able to utilize that to look at the plans that are being generated for that piece of SQL and then determine how we can change that to increase the performance.

It's more effective to use command-line interface than using the GO setup.

One of the great things about that EM is that you are able to connect to Oracle Support. This will make your work easier due to the fact that it will help you identify if your database is to be upgraded or if you are experiencing any issues. It can help you quickly identify issues instead of having to raise them in a service report. It's much more efficient.

There are a number of different user interfaces you can choose from.

The solution is pretty interactive and user-friendly.

The database performance monitoring features are very useful and allow us to quickly zero in on DB-related issues.Exadata storage server and Infiniband switches can be viewed from the GUi in OEM which cannot be done in other tools . The ability to deploy metric extensions makes this tool extensible for our custom monitoring also.

It's the most reliable database available on the market. 

The tried and tested services that Oracle provides is second to none. 

The solution offers excellent support.

The product is very mature. There are a lot of new upstarts, however, this technology has a long history of quality. While other options may not have many use cases available, Oracle certainly does. They have a wide variety of success stories users can look to.

The solution's most valuable aspect is the fact that it is embedded with the Oracle database and Oracle's engineering system, its extra data, and analytics. 

They have plug-ins that are very helpful. 

Due to the infrastructure's size, the introduction they offer is very, very useful. It helps with an overall understanding of the product.

They have a very nice graphical user interface.

The monitoring is good.

We can capture the SQL tune from us. With Oracle Enterprise Managers, we can see the rich performance tuning.
