Oracle Enterprise Manager Review

OEM 12c - fairly straight forward on all ends, minor stability issues that resolved itself

Valuable Features

Real Time monitoring i.e SQL Monitoring and the ADDM

Improvements to My Organization

We have setup dashboards for the SMT (Senior Management Team) to give them a traffic light system on a very high level – enough for them to know that all systems are up and available

Room for Improvement

Costs of add-on’s and management packs i.e AWS (Amazon) and Golden Gate

Use of Solution

3-4 years across 3 different jobs.

Deployment Issues

None, quite straight forward (having already deployed and installed weblogic before)

Stability Issues

Just on a few occasions agent connectivity to repository would fail resulting in “stuck” messages on the OEM screens, resolved itself overnight – weird?

Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service: ExcellentTechnical Support: Excellent

Previous Solutions

Just the old OEM 10g/11g

Initial Setup

Fairly straight forward. The download zip files have everything you need in one place and instructions are simple to follow for those who have experience in Oracle installations.

Implementation Team

Installed by DBATEAM onsite

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Setup costs are absorbed by the Enterprise licenses we already hold, but as we run OEM from Amazon cloud services we have daily costs for server/disk/networks etc. Hard to give a figure as it depends on what Amazon service we use

Other Solutions Considered


Other Advice

If you are already paying for enterprises licenses then it’s rude not to use it!

Hello Kal Heer,

Can we setup Dashboards, based on users' role in an organization ?

I've had some trouble deploying agents.

I like that I can purchase different modules to monitor my database, weblogic and E-business suite all under one tool.

The number of plugins available makes this tool quite valuable for enterprise.
