    Foglight

    Strengths [Foglight]
    • Monitoring, Alerting and Management of on-prem virtualization and physical servers
    • Historical trending and baselining are excellent and being able to compare a problem period against the same sets of data for a period when there was no issue is especially helpful as part of troubleshooting.
    • Ease of use for end users is appreciated
    Weaknesses [of Foglight]
    • Creation and management of custom monitors is a developer level activity requiring Groovy skillset
    • Less useful for management of an environment where there is a large amount of custom implementations
    • Commitment to longevity of cartridges/packs for specific subsystems
    • Ability to create custom schedules/alerts/escalations is only available via a 3rd party product (from a former Quest developer) and is not particularly easy to manage/manipulate
    • Lack of API accessibility for external integrations to other analytics (splunk, etc.)

    Oracle Enterprise Manager

    OEM is very well suited for all Oracle products, especially Oracle databases and Exadata machines; even not Oracle hardware, it is very good and displaying high level details.OEM is not well suited for older hardware vendors like AIX, HP-UX, DEC/Digital, Microsoft (sql server). This is a big negative as most large companies have a heterogeneous environment with many different vendor hardware and (database) software products.

    Pros

    Foglight

    • Foglight NMS is very light on resources given the amount of monitoring connectivity options it provides. It is one of the few that I've trialed in the past that offers SNMP v3 connections.
    • The dashboard is concise with the main areas of interest. It can be customized as well if you have a particular use case.
    • Setting up alerts is straightforward with the ability to set custom thresholds. Alert emails get sent by configuring a primary mail server with the option to add a backup mail server in the event of a primary mail server outage or connectivity issues.

    Oracle Enterprise Manager

    • Database status. Being able to see which databases are up/down, at a glance, allows us to quickly react to issues.
    • Reporting. We report on last backups, daily status, a host of metrics, and compliance levels of all our databases. With reporting we come into the office with a set of "status" reports and we know instantly if a database has issues.
    • Metrics. We have a number of KPI's and SLA's we need to meet. Metrics applied to the databases allow us to stay on top of those requirements as well as fix common issues without a DBA needing to log in to assess the issue.

    Cons

    Foglight

    • GUI interface is difficult to navigate
    • No APM capabilities. They left this space about a year ago
    • We have had issues with the GUI response times. On a regular basis, the interface can take several minutes to refresh

    Oracle Enterprise Manager

    • We also use OEM to monitor SQL Server. However, OEM only provided limited features for SQL Server. It would be nice if we can schedule backup jobs for SQL Server in OEM.
    • The ability to run SQL queries. You can't run queries in OEM. I have to go to SQL Developer or SQL PLUS to run. queries.

    I have experienced great business insights from the operation of this product on our data and work environment. It closely monitors workflows to ensure that there is positive and regulated outcomes that meets company standards. It detects problems in early stages to avoid critical cases that can lead to higher cost and time wastage. It prepares data and all workloads to make the process of migration from our company to cloud servers more simple.

    Oracle Enterprise Manager

    Toad for Oracle is more suited for individual users who have a strong focus on database development, and it is not as comprehensive as Oracle Enterprise Manager. While it is quite decent in logical database layer tasks, such as schema objects and SQL, it lacks visibility into host level and I/O layer performance stats.

    Oracle Enterprise Manager

    • When we were using Oracle GoldenGate, it made our life easy in terms of visually seeing the configuration and identifying issues easily
    • It also makes ASM management very easy instead of doing it in the command line
    • Creating policies and implementing certain standard configurations across all the databases is easy
