To help you make the most of Oracle Data Integrator, and to
deliver a superior ownership experience in an effort to minimize systems
management costs, Oracle recently released Oracle Management Pack for Oracle Data
Integrator

management capabilities to provide an integrated and top-down solution for your
Oracle Data Integrator environments. Management
Pack for Oracle Data Integrator supports both 11g (11.1.1.7.0 and higher) and 12c

consolidated view of your entire Oracle Data Integrator infrastructure. This enables users to monitor and manage all
their components centrally from Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control.

Performance Monitoring
and Management

Management Pack for Oracle Data Integrator streamlines the
monitoring of the health, performance, and availability of each and all
components of an Oracle Data Integrator environment – this includes Master and
Work Repositories, Standalone and JEE agents, as well as source and target Data
Servers.

also be viewed. Overall metrics for agent
performance, with quick links to session details are provided.

Configuration
Management

To ensure that the configurations of all critical Oracle Data
Integrator components in production environments are consistent with staging or
test environments, Management Pack for Oracle Data Integrator provides
Configuration Snapshots to save working configurations into the Management
Repository or into an external XML file. These snapshots can then be compared with the active configuration in
staging or test environments, or against any historical snapshot. Configuration Comparison is the next logical
step which thus allows you to ensure the consistency of configurations in your
application environment. Going one step
further, Configuration History keeps track of all configuration changes, which
can help in diagnosing performance problems that may be related to
configuration changes along the way.

Service Level
Management

Management Pack for Oracle Data Integrator allows for a
proactive method to monitor Oracle Data Integrator environments at all
levels. Many out of the box metrics are
automatically collected for each Oracle Data Integrator component
(repositories, agents, sources, targets…) which then provides users the ability
to set up alerts based on critical or warning thresholds. Notifications can be provided to users in
various ways through emails or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
options.

Historical Analysis
and Reporting

While real-time metrics certainly come in handy, there is also
something to be said for historical collection of data! Management Pack for Oracle Data Integrator
stores collected metrics and configurations data in a central repository
–allowing users to thus analyze the metrics in various incremental views that
include; last 24 hours, last 7 days, last 31 days. In addition, customizable service and system
dashboard functionality allows users to create reports on various services and
systems for service level availability, usage, performance, and business
indicators – all in an effort to facilitate strategic trend analysis and
reporting.

In a nutshell,
Oracle Management Pack for Oracle Data Integrator benefits include: reducing
the costs associated with monitoring the overall Oracle Data Integrator
infrastructure and providing visibility into complex Oracle Data Integrator
deployments across the enterprise
, minimizing troubleshooting and performance tuning efforts
as well as improving the
overall ability to efficiently monitor Service Level Agreement compliance using
powerful alerting capabilities.
