    This software is suited for a smaller organization with a small datacenter that uses mainly HP hardware. Once the environment gets larger it would pay to move to some of their paid for products

    Oracle

    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

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at scanning for devices and adding them for monitoring is almost effortless.
    • HP Systems Insight Manager is very good at detecting most HP hardware and integrating with local management software.

    • 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

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • I think some of the areas that HP Systems Insight Manager can improve is non HP hardware.
    • This software also sometimes struggles handling larger environments.
    • This software also has issues managing environments that aren't set up perfectly.

    • 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.

        Alternatives Considered

        Hewlett Packard Enterprise

        Some of the other products I use for system management are HP SiteScope and SolarWinds Orion NPM and APM. SiteScope is another good HP product but it isn't very cost effective to use for general system management. It's good for performing complex alerting and monitoring. SolarWinds makes a great product but it is better geared for gathering statistics and performance data real-time and historically. Again the cost of this product makes it ineffective for general system monitoring.

        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.

        Return on Investment

        Hewlett Packard Enterprise

        • Since this software is free if you buy HP hardware the cost is nothing which is nice for cash strapped businesses.
        • This software has a somewhat difficult time handling large environments where systems are not configured perfectly for this software.
        • I would always recommend having multiples of this software installed for redundancy because generally unless it and the environment is properly configured it can require maintenance.

        Oracle

        • 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
