    • 19. Grid Control 11gPatch plans Through the MOS integration and refreshed information, patch advices are displayed These patches can be deployed with the OEM Grid Control 11g patch plan feature To use patch plans the Oracle provisioning and patch automation pack must be licensed - DEMO -19 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services
    • 20. Grid Control 11gPatch plans - conclusions Patch plans allow to decrease Oracle software management overhead Patch plans can be easily monitored and recovered in case of errors However patch plan need an internet access to be efficient. The offline requires manual download of the patches The technology must be trusted for patching, however might be more efficient than human-patching :-)20 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services

    • 22. Grid Control 11gOCM & Harvester architecture The Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) allows to provide information about your infrastructure to My Oracle Support Through OCM Oracle can evaluate the benefit of some fixes/patches according to your environment As soon as a patch is installed, OCM informs the Oracle support which adapts re-evaluates the advices Grid Control offers an improved functionality based on the Harvester This functionality exists since 10.2.0.5 but is now better integrated in Grid Control 11g This feature allows to avoid deploying an OCM configuration per server22 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services

    • 27. Grid Control 11gIncrease database availability (1) dbi services proposes professional database infrastructure services (SLA) Grid Control 11g might be the monitoring platform Therefore some monitoring standards have been defined These standards are documented, validated and maintained by consultants and the Service Management Team27 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services
    • 28. Grid Control 11gIncrease database availability (2) The dbi services templates exist for :  Database monitoring  Listener monitoring  Host Monitoring The templates can be imported and applyied with the following statements :emcli import_template -files=DBI_DB_MONITORING_TEMPLATE.xmlemcli import_template -files=DBI_HOST_MONITORING_TEMPLATE.xmlemcli import_template -files=DBI_LISTENER_MONITORING_TEMPLATE.xmlemcli apply_template -name=DBI_DB_MONITORING_TEMPLATE-targets=EMREP:oracle_database28 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services
    • 29. Grid Control 11gConclusion Oracle Grid Control 11g is a powerful monitoring and management framework In order to provide a clear advantage compared to other monitoring tools, Oracle proposes a deep MOS integration Grid Control becomes also a software management framework allowing to benefit quickly from Oracle deployment Despite the costs and licensing strategy, OEM Grid Control 11g is now accepted by many customers (Monitoring tools are expansive anyway) dbi services proposes methods and standards to get access to this powerful framework29 www.dbi-services.com 06.10.2011 © dbi services
