In this session we demonstrated some of these new functionalities. The recording from the Oracle Enterprise Management Online Forum is now available to watch on demand.
Questions and Answers from "Managing the World's #1 Middleware" session
A. Yes, EM12c provides a number of diagnostic services including JVM diagnostics, which is hot-pluggable on running JVMs, configuration diagnostics though EM12c’s configuration management services. Enterprise Manager customers routinely employ these services to perform root cause analysis in problematic production environments.
Q. Does EM 12c support WLS 12c?
A. Yes, Enterprise Manager 12c supports WLS12c including Enterprise Manager’s middleware lifecycle services.
Q. What does Enterprise Manager do for Exalogic?
A. Enterprise Manager provides complete apps to disk management for Exalogic though the Exalogic Dashboard providing a unified view of hardware and software assets. Furthermore, Enterprise Manager 12c provides visibility into hardware assets by communicating to the integrated lights out management card, or service processor. Consequently, Enterprise Manager has visibility into the compute nodes, switches and storage on Exalogic hardware.
Q. Does EM12c contains a new version of ADP(aka Clearapp) also?
A. ADP has been integrated into the EM12c console, providing a single pane of glass for ADP across WLS instances.
A. Enterprise Manager Cloud Control (12c) has a new modular plug-in architecture that allows for a more flexible product life-cycle. As a consequence, new middleware management release features can be downloaded directly into Enterprise Manager 12c and new functionality can be pushed down to the EM agent. Furthermore, Enterprise Manager’s new architecture scales to meet the largest customer deployments of Fusion Middleware and Weblogic domains.
A. Real user Experience Insight uses Network Protocol Analysis, which is non-intrusive to the end-user performance, to track all end-users accessing the (web) application.
A. Enterprise Manager 12c builds upon 11g release in a number of significant ways. This includes tighter integration with Enterprise Manager Ops Center for Hardware Management (networking, storage, compute nodes). Additionally, EM12c provides the ability to clone and scale out Fusion Middleware Containers and WLS containers with Java Required Files. And lastly, the Exalogic Dashboard has been improved with simplified discovery and a new look and feel.
A. The WLS Console is converging with Fusion Middleware Control Console over time and ultimately provides a single console for Weblogic and Fusion Middleware management. The end goal is for Fusion Middleware Console to contain the functionality of the Weblogic console, plus provide extended console management services for the Fusion Middleware stack.
A. Enterprise Manager Cloud Control works hand-in-hand with Fusion Middleware Control. EM12c and Fusion Middlware Control acts as a single pane of glass allowing you to manage all your Weblogic and Fusion Middleware Domains from a single console. In addition to the configuration capabilities of Fusion Middleware Control, Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides services to those middleware instances including: deployment, cloning/scaling, testing, configuration management, diagnostics, service level management, patch automation and cloud management services - all from that single console.
A. Yes, Enterprise Manager Cloud Control has Coherence management capabilities and can monitor and manage both weblogic and Coherence. For Coherence Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides deployment, cloning/scaling, configuration management, diagnostics, service level management, patch automation and cloud management services, all from the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control console.
A. Enterprise Manager Cloud Console provides a greater number of services than WLS/FMW Console providing a single pane of glass for enterprise management. For example, in addition to the configuration capabilities of Fusion Middleware Control, Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides services to those middleware instances including: deployment, cloning/scaling, testing, configuration management, diagnostics, service level management, patch automation and cloud management services - all from that single console.
A. Yes, Exalogic can run database servers, however, as a best practice Exalogic is best paired with Exadata from a performance and high availability standpoint.
