Oracle Enterprise Manager 13C has been introduced as a ‘single pane of glass’. Managing and monitoring all the assets, in or out of the public cloud.

But when creating an RDS- database instance in Amazon’s cloud, it is monitored by Cloudwatch, and it’s not possible to install a so-called Oracle Hybrid […]

By |2019-10-08T22:23:38+02:00February 27th, 2016|Categories: Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , , |

Recently I bumped into an annoying bug in the code of a report, wrote about it a while ago, notified Oracle. And they has confirmed that a new version of this specific report is in development phase.

Usage Tracking Reports, using Oracle Enterprise Manager 13C as a SAM tool

By |2016-02-04T11:07:16+01:00February 4th, 2016|Categories: Architecture, licensing, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , |

Still loving the idea to use Oracle Enterprise Manager as a ‘kind of ‘ Software Asset Management Tool, and get regular centralized reports that tells me what Oracle software is running and if there are changes in use of licenses over time. The necessary data is already there in the […]

Metric ‘swap utilisation(%)’ on Grid Control node too high.

By |2019-10-07T08:35:29+02:00August 12th, 2011|Categories: grid control, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , , , |

The metric 'swap utilisation (%)' on the node where Grid Control resides, shows permanently a very hig value. Red Hat Linux, 64-bits, 32GB RAM, 4GB swap. Adding 4GB to the swap-file solved the problem.

Enterprise manager falsely reports active connections

After installing and configuring application server, the agent on that server started to sent messages like 'The number of active connections is ..' . But.. there are no connections yet on the system (as far as I know)! Grid Control (OMS + agent) = 10.2.05, application server 10.1.2.0.2

Discoverer shows down in Enterprise Manager while up.

By |2019-09-29T12:08:46+02:00September 9th, 2009|Categories: grid control, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , |

Short one this time, all in favour of getting my green ‘pie’ in Grid Control management server.

Grid Control: 10.2.0.5. Discoverer: 10.1.2.x
In Grid Control, after upgrade to 10.2.0.5, a Discoverer target shows down in the list, while it’s functioning quite well.

It seemed an old bug (Grid Ctrl 10.1.04) is still not […]

Enterprise Manager, OMS : large number of defunct-processes

By |2019-09-29T17:12:56+02:00March 31st, 2009|Categories: grid control, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , , |

On my Grid Control management-server (Suse Linux, OMS version 10.2.0.4) a very large number of <defunct> processes arose what eventually caused the OMS not to respond anymore.

Looked like this:
oracle   16932 15961  0 Mar03 ?        00:00:00 <defunct>
oracle   16987 15961  0 Mar03 ?        00:00:00 <defunct>
oracle   […]
