Navigating the "Oracle on VMware" stack with the vC Ops Management Pack for Oracle Enterprise Manager

Join Oracle Partner 'Blue Medora' for a 30 minute webcast where you'll see Oracle on VMware as you've never seen it before... 

vCenter Operations Manager EE with the Management Pack for Oracle Enterprise Manager maps all "target" data collected by EM12c and applies its powerful analytic engine to present a highly visual, intuitive interface for resolving performance issues before they result in down time, identifying where there is risk for future problems, and predicting when capacity will reach its limits.  It does the hard work so you can spend more time optimizing the infrastructure and less time reacting to the latest incidents.

In this webcast, you will learn how to use the vC Ops MP for OEM to:
  • Avoid potential issues by leveraging the deep relationship mapping functionality of the vCOPs Management Pack for Oracle EM to visualize the infrastructure components that are having issues, or are at risk, and how they impact Oracle workloads.
  • Identify root cause by using vCOPs Infrastructure views to drill through the Oracle on VMware infrastructure from the highest levels (example: RAC Cluster) to individual metrics on related VMware components (example: a VMware Datastore).
  • Perform impact analysis by graphically mapping the relationships of Oracle components (eg Oracle host, database, listener, RAC, ASM, etc) to the infrastructure components they're running on, including all of the VMware components such as Virtual Machines, ESX Servers, Data Stores, and more.
