Enterprise Manager Cloud Control monitoring functionality permits unattended monitoring of your IT environment. Enterprise Manager comes with a comprehensive set of performance and health metrics that allows monitoring of key components in your environment, such as applications, application servers, databases, as well as the back-end components on which they rely (such as hosts, operating systems, storage).

The Management Agent on each monitored host monitors the status, health, and performance of all managed components (targets) on that host. If a target goes down, or if a performance metric crosses a warning or critical threshold, an event is triggered and sent to Enterprise Manager. Administrators or any interested party can be notified of the triggered event through the Enterprise Manager notification system.

Other than being costly, it works. I would rate Oracle Enterprise Manager a seven out of ten.

We are partners with Oracle. We have a business relationship with the company. I have more than 20 years in the IT sector. I am a database engineer. We tend to use the latest version of the solution, however, we have clients on older versions. We have one client, for example, on version 12. I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten, overall. We're mostly satisfied with the product.

We're working with the latest version of the solution. We're on the service industry side of the business. Whatever our clients need we work to accommodate. Whether they prefer an Oracle server or a Microsoft option, we'll work with them to meet their needs. We don't exclusively deal with Oracle. We would never push our clients to use specific technologies. We just suggest options and highlight the features that best apply to their use cases. Then, we simply follow their wishes and deliver on their expectations. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten overall. They're very competitive in the market and very good as a product overall. Our clients are happy with it. If the pricing was a bit lower I might give them a perfect ten out of ten.

We're just a customer. We have no relationship with the vendor. There is a more up to date version, 18.42, however, I have not started using it yet as it requires some patching. Currently, I'm on version 18.4, which is quite stable. I would recommend the solution to others. In fact, I've already met many people in which I have done just that. It's only been a month using the product and already I've noticed that it is quite effective. Since I haven't done quite a lot in terms of production learning, I will just rate it at seven out of ten at this time.

If you are an Oracle shop, or even an Oracle SI, then familiarity with Oracle one stop management solution is an imperative. Everything ties into this solution, so it has become a de facto standard for Oracle-based software given that the base is free to use with Oracle products. There is no downside to deploying this solution in your data center.

To me this is the best product for enterprise database management. I rate it a 10 out of 10. Now, before you implement, you can do several tests with the Enterprise Manager templates VMS, available from Oracle. Also, check the compatibility matrix and try to always keep your system up to date.

If you have a license contract with Oracle and if you have a lifetime agreement on service on any product from Oracle then this product is worth using. Otherwise it's best to explore the option of using an open source product. Not worth it for start up companies.

Analyze your daily monitoring and service intervention needs, based upon the available (or target) headcount, otherwise you may find yourself inundated with more alerts and notifications than can actually be handled by your staff. Don't just turn on all the alerting and notifications out of the box. Start with what you know you want and are capable of responding to, and closing effectively. Enable those. Then work outwards towards the nice-to-know, or discovery alerts. Currently, depending on your implementation and use timeframe, you may also want to evaluate the Oracle Management Cloud solutions, which are similar, but different in that they employ a pay-as-you-go approach to the monitoring and management cycle. The On-Premise OEM solution works best for dynamically growing environments (that tend to get bigger and bigger over time) or for stable complex environments that will be in-place for the next 10 or more years.

The product is very powerful and should be used to automate more key DBA type tasks. Performance tuning bad SQL becomes extremely simplified as long as you leverage the out of box capabilities and you have purchased the Tuning and Diagnostic Pack. Those are a must have to really take advantage of the capabilities.
