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.

Pandora FMS

Pandora FMS adjusts to the client's need, from a simple configuration of a single server to a complex scenario with high availability support without additional licensing costs.

Pros

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Pandora FMS

Before using Pandora FMS, tests were carried out with all these tools:
  • Nagios
  • Zabbix
  • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
  • IBM Tivoli
  • PRTG
  • SolarWinds
Pandora FMS allows simple customization by making adjustments to text files, developing agent add-ons without the need to be a programmer, there is no scenario where we could not take data and save it in PandoraFMS, IoT, industrial products, and everything that any client needs to monitor.

Return on Investment

Oracle Enterprise Manager

  • You are practically blind without OEM. There are other tools available but are expensive and negatively impact database performance.
  • If a bug hits OEM and it skips monitoring or doesn't catch something, it can have extremely negative consequences.
  • Being able to deploy scripts through OEM has replaced thousands of hours of work.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pandora FMS

  • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
  • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
  • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
