OEM agents on each host upload data to your management servers every few minutes.
Here’s how you can see exactly what your agent has uploaded. First, enable local backups of the uploaded files with:
emctl setproperty agent -name 'backupUploadedFiles' -value 'true'
Then bounce the agent and perform an upload like this:
emctl reload agent
emctl upload agent
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.
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:
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:
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.
Oracle Management Cloud
Had a great few days in Raleigh presenting and attending at the East Coast Oracle Users Group! We ran out of time in the hand on lab, so if you’re looking for the metric and monitoring labs, you can find those in this post. I’ve added my slides to slide share below
Enterprise Manager is a critical tool for monitoring database and middleware targets, as well as Engineered Systems and hosts. Each target has it’s own set of metrics. If you read my previous posts on viewing metrics and setting thresholds, you’ve got a good understanding of how to set thresholds on a single target. What if you have 100 targets? Or a 1000?
One of the most critical steps in monitoring your targets with Enterprise Manager, is to set your metrics and thresholds properly for your environment. All targets will have predefined metrics that will be enabled and thresholds set based on recommendations from Oracle product teams. These may or may not be good for your environment. Customers all have different requirements for what they want to be e-mailed, paged or notified by ticket about.
Every target in Enterprise Manager has a set of target related metrics. These metrics control what is collected, how frequently, and whether alerts and notifications are sent. They are defined by target metadata and are specific to a particular target type. The metric is collected by the Agent on regular intervals, and then batch uploaded to the EM repository. Exploring these collected metrics can provide you with a wealth of information about your target.
From the target, click the target menu / Monitoring / All Metrics.
