Transcript

  • 1. sysco.no Enterprise Manager 12c – Config / Patching EM 12c Deep dive
  • 2. sysco.no Overview • Configuration – Tuning thresholds – Tuning setup • Patching OMS / Agents – OMS – Agents – Plugins – Diagnostic agents – WLS – Database
  • 3. sysco.no Overview • Goals – Stable EM Solution – Get new features/updates • Challenges – Updates cost – Do you have SLA on EM? – Will patches be successful?
  • 4. sysco.no Performance • Have sufficient memory and cpu! • Disk access must be fast! • Previous version 12.1.0.2 of EM had «Performance Patch Bundle» • If you are on older version – upgrade (or new install)
  • 5. sysco.no What to do after fresh install? • Read Note Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Configuration Best Practices (Doc ID 1553342.1) • OMS – If you have more than 250 agents, increase the -Xmx parameter (maximum size) for the java heap to 2 gb Configuration
  • 6. sysco.no Configuration Best Practices • Repository Recommendations – Repvfy execute optimize: establishes a baseline and sets the environment to the “recommended” values based on the config – Increase Task Workers – Check that there is no backlog – Increase Ping Grace Period – When 100’s or 1000’s of agents – Maintaing Audit Data: Initialize audit trail cleanup, set archive timestamp for audit records, create purge job Configuration
  • 7. sysco.no Configuration Best Practices • Agent – Steps to Tune the Cloud Control 12c Agent Performance When Monitoring a Large Number of Targets (Doc ID 1349887.1) – enableAutoTuning=true (default on) – FMW: -Dweblogic.ThreadPoolPercentSocketReaders=80 -Dweblogic.ThreadPoolSize=XX (SOA may have lot of targets – and agent may die if not adjusted) Configuration
  • 8. sysco.no Patch Set Update • Release Schedule of Current Enterprise Manager Releases and Patch Sets (10g, 11g, 12c) (Doc ID 793512.1) • Latest 12.1.0.3.2 Enterprise Manager Base Platform Patch Set Update (PSU) - Patch 18090046 • 12.1.0.4 expected Q2 CY14 according to MOS – And did – was released Tuesday - June 3rd Patching
  • 9. sysco.no Patching EM Cloud Control • You can use EM to patch EM • First you need to setup connection to Oracle Support • You may need to add proxy Patching
  • 10. sysco.no Patching EM Cloud Control • Or you may need to change in firewall – check note: Cannot Connect From 12c Cloud Control To https://updates.Oracle.Com (Doc ID 1436653.1) • At minimum, the following URLs should be made available through the firewall: – aru-akam.oracle.com – ccr.oracle.com – updates.oracle.com – login.oracle.com – support.oracle.com Patching
  • 11. sysco.no Patching EM Cloud Control • Do not use your personal MOS account – must have access to all • Force an update Patching
  • 12. sysco.no Upgrading Agents • Agents are versioned – for example 12.1.0.3 – Bundle patches have version number for example 12.1.0.3.9 • Upgrading a Management Agent modifies its installation base directory structure • Done from CLI or console Patching
  • 13. sysco.no Patching Agents / Plugins • Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.3 Bundle Patch Master Note (Doc ID 1572022.1) • Current bundle patches • Bundles released last day of the month Patching
  • 14. sysco.no Patching Agents • Management Agent • Recommended vs. not recommended (as in you do not have to) Patching
  • 15. sysco.no Patching WLS • EM suggests WLS patches – PSU and other • Cannot patch OMS WLS from console, must use CLI • Patching WLS in OMS would require WLS Mgmt Pack Patching
  • 16. sysco.no Experiences • Patching OMS using CLI (OPatch) • Patching Agents/Plugins using Console • Patching WLS using CLI (bsu) – The OMS is running on the WLS • Patching OMS sometimes takes long time (plugins) • You do not get patching advisory for Plugins, only Agents – But in 12.1.0.4 you do Patching
  • 17. sysco.no Recommendations • Set up named credentials / preferred credentials • Create relevant groups used for patching • The Groups will give relevant Patch advise • The Groups will help you to patch with fewer steps • Separate groups in Dev, QA, Prod so that you can test on a smaller number of targets first Patching
  • 18. sysco.no Recommendations • Decide on a patching strategy – Decide on if you will patch each month, quarterly, 2X per year ? – Will you patch as soon as a patch is available ? • Look at cost/benefit Patching
  • 19. sysco.no Sequence • Patch OPatch on OMS (11.1) • Apply latest PSU to OMS • Apply latest WLS Patch • Apply latest patches to plug-ins OMS-side • Apply latest agent patches • Apply latest patches to plug-ins agent-side – Plugins may have two patches, ex Discover + Monitoring, not necessarily in same bundle patch version Patching
  • 20. sysco.no What more to patch? • Upgrade JVMD/ADP engines with latest patches • Upgrade JVMD/ADP agents with latest patches • EMDIAG Repvfy Kit • Database • JVM • RDA Patching
  • 21. sysco.no 12.1.0.4 - Features • The Self Update feature - Agent software, plug-ins • Global Preferred Credentials • Plug-in Management • Advanced Thresholds Management (adaptive) • Middleware: Target Management Best Practices • ++++++ • http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/doc.121/e25353/whats_new.htm New version
