Oracle VM Server integration with Oracle Management Cloud as part of Infrastructure Monitoring

Simon Hayler
Senior Technical Product Manager

We are please to announce that Oracle VM Server is now integrated with Oracle Management Cloud release 19.1.5 as part of Infrastructure Monitoring. This initial integration is based upon monitoring of the key targets of Oracle VM Server with integration with Oracle VM Server logs and Oracle Management Cloud Log Analytics in a later release. 

The new target is the Oracle VM Virtual Server which is representative of an Oracle VM Server Guest or virtual machine. From the Enterprise Summary view it is possible to extend monitoring to key high level areas for summary viewing. These views are flexible and can be changed.

The other target properties for Oracle VM are listed in the Others Section which like the Oracle VM Virtual Server target can be edited for high level summary viewing.

The Oracle VM Virtual Platform is representative of the Oracle VM Server hypervisor. All of these main targets and metrics can be viewed in more detail with further rich monitoring available.

To enable this integration there are three steps required. 

Step 1 - Prerequisites

Oracle VM Server version 3.4 and above 

User name and password for the Oracle VM Server console, for example the admin user password

We need to explicitly add the Oracle VM Manager Weblogic certificate to the Oracle Management Cloud keystore

Step 2 - Decide on the option to add an Oracle VM Server target

Via the Oracle Management Cloud UI OR

Using the omccli and master JSON file 

Step 3 - Set up alerts (this is optional but recommended)

By setting up alerts this enables lights out monitoring and also the ability to setup alerts to notify users of any performance issues relating to the Oracle VM Server target.

Within the Oracle Management Cloud documentation, details on the integration of the Oracle VM Server target are here; details on setting up alerts are here.
