Beyond Red Light-Green Light: Using Oracle Enterprise Manager for Enterprise Monitoring

Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CST

True database monitoring must go beyond reactive “red light, green light” alerts. Have you ever wondered if you could get more out of your Oracle Enterprise Manager implementation? What if your OEM implementation included:

  • Templates to ensure you were getting actionable alerts?
  • A visible alert history to determine what system is causing the most noise in your environment?
  • Visual data to be proactive for plan for CPU and disk space memory?
  • Information that helped with true capacity planning and budgeting?

See how the leader in DBA services in North America has fine-tuned OEM implementations across our client base.

  • We will detail how we fine tune templates and/or create additional templates to eliminate unwanted alerts - - which includes removing unnecessary metrics and policies, setting up critical and warning thresholds at appropriate levels and other tactics.
  • Datavail will also examine how we use our OEM Alert Optimizer to trend data (alert volume by day, alert volume by week, alert volume by Target Name, alert volume by Metric Name and hourly alert volume) from the OEM repository.

Featured Speaker: John Kaufling, Director of Oracle Applicaton Services, Datavail
