Oracle Database Appliance Plug-In for Enterprise Manager

With the Oracle Database Appliance plug-in, you can monitor Oracle Database Appliance targets using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c. The plug-in provides configuration and monitoring information about any Oracle Database Appliance target running Appliance Manager 12.1.2.2 or higher. Features include:

  • Monitoring of the Oracle Database Appliance as an Enterprise Manager target
  • Monitoring a dynamic group of Oracle Database Appliance systems using tags
  • Oracle Database Appliance components (DB, ILOM, HOST, Virtual Machines, Hypervisor, ASM, and Oracle Appliance Manager) are grouped and can be monitored under a target

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) Plug-In for Enterprise Manager is now available. It can be updated via the Self Update feature of Enterprise Manager, which updates components whenever new or updated features become available. The ODA Plug-In is now available via the Enterprise Manager Store, an external site that is periodically checked by Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to obtain information about updates ready for download.

The documentation can be found in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Documentation 12c Release 4 Plug-Ins library.

Update your Enterprise Manager today and check out the ODA Plug-In!
