Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Room for Improvement

Database & Flexcube System Administrator at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
Because all our banking infrastructure is based on Oracle, I’ve tried to register Enterprise Manager on the middleware level, let's say, WebLogic applications. But I cannot say that I can do all the administration from Enterprise Manager, that I can do from the WebLogic Admin Console. So, I think here it needs some improvement: Things that you can do on the WebLogic Admin Console, you should be able to do them on the Enterprise Manager, so you don’t have to log into the Admin Console.

There are still doubts as of how to use this tool for administration issues such as storage or replication operations. DBAs still prefer to administer databases by manual commands. They rather use this tool to monitor databases and alert mechanisms. To be more specific, most DBAs (that I've met) prefer to use “Sqlplus”, “putty”, “secureCRT” command line tools or “Toad” tool to manage replication or to manage storage(tablespace, control file etc) instead of using EM Cloud Control. They do not feel relaxed using EM Cloud Control for those subjects. Oracle may emphasize on those subject on the trainings. Or Oracle Support Engineers can motivate the customers about using those features if they are really stable. View full review »

When registering a host, only if your host is running Linux will you get all the information which is available on EM. It would be nice if in future releases to include IBM AIX (primarily) and Microsoft Windows (secondly). When you register a WebLogic server (in our case WebLogic 10.3.6), you can actually do certain things. You cannot use Enterprise Manager as replacement for a WebLogic console. View full review »

It's much more than a monitoring package - sometimes when scratching beneath the surface you end up with issues . Such as agents requiring security, scan listeners moving about after fail overs, some patching processes failing - these are relatively rare though and considering the breadth of the product I would not consider this an issue.

The interface for Data Guard could use some work. We had challenges with switchover/failover testing. View full review »

One of the things that can be improved is the quality of results generated by BI Publisher. They are somewhat confusing when it comes to analysis. Another point is in the installation of the product. The installation steps are very complex and the documentation for them is very generic and does not make very clear the correct steps from the installation to the addition of the host and database. Another point that can be improved is the agent instability in the monitored hosts, because sometimes an agent has to be resynchronized to recapture the information. View full review »

Stability and performance of the tool itself. Might be better used with more hardware. Normally the specifications from the docs are enough. View full review »

I think EM should be able to monitor new products from different vendors. I would like to have unified monitoring interface to monitor other software and hardware, for example: AIX operating systems, including IBM-specific features (HMC, LPAR parameters), disk and tape storages, some optical switches and other enterprise production hardware.
