Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
  • Management Environment Please describe your managed environment (provide a picture if available) • If using EM 12c, did you upgrade or start with a fresh install? Please explain: – Fresh installs. I am often working with Exadata and BP1 upgrades were challenging. I prefer a clean installation and proponent of health checks through each step of the implementation. • How many EM environments do you have? If more than one, please explain why? – I have six that I maintain as the primary DBA for the client and have another 10 or so as the main technical resource for my company. – My company is a consultant firm that manages multiple clients and many desire their own EM12c. • Number of managed targets and their versions: – Anywhere from 60-1200 targets for each of my clients. • Deployment configuration for EM: (number/size of OMS and OMR servers, number/platform of agents, if using a DR/HA, how is it implemented?) – This is massive, but I do have Linux, Sun and Windows OMS and I have targets that are Linux, Sun, Windows, HP-UX. Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
  • Management Environment (cont.) Please describe your managed environment (provide a picture if available) • Other systems integrated with EM in production (other mgmt software, ticketing, etc.) – I’m currently working to integrate more into the EM12c environment, (BI Publisher, APEX, etc.). • What key EM functionality do you currently use? What does it help you achieve? – Monitoring, performance tuning, backup, cloning, EM Jobs to replace all cron activity. • What future EM functionality do plan to utilize in the next year? – More metric extensions to offer more defined alerting on BI Publisher, web transaction mangement. Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
  • Likes What are the top five things you like about EM 12c? • The “self-service” aspect of the product. • The ability to use the incident manager as a pro-active monitoring tool for warning alerts vs. email “white noise”. • ASH Analytics, ADDM new features. • EM Jobs to replace old job management systems. • EMCLI, the command line offers power to the DBA to script and build out what wasn’t possible before. Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
  • Pain Points What are the five biggest pain points you’ve encountered with EM 12c? • Patching the EM12c should be as easy as the patch plans for any other system. Almost requires a second EM12c to create. • That many think it’s out of the box ready, not realizing the setup requirements. • Windows deployment for agents- SIMPLIFY THIS. • EM Job management- problem jobs can be difficult to manage/reschedule. • No global library for metric extensions. Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
  • Key Improvements What are your top requests for product improvements in 2014? Why are they important to you? • EMCLI documentation needs to be improved upon. • EM Job migration utility- needed for those with jobs. • Address bugs more effectively before release- too many releases in short time due to this. • Improve the Windows deployment feature for agents. • Stop letting people think that not having an “all green” status summary is normal…  Oracle Confidential per CPCA Agreement
