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.

Great for enterprise deployments where there is a single standard of devices and monitoring practices in place. Managed Service Providers have a harder time deploying the solution across multiple customers due to constantly changing customer requirements, device types and monitoring and security requirements and scenarios.

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.

  • Graphing - Sciencelogic has highly configurable, high-quality graphs that make the display of mission-critical data very effective.
  • Customization - With a few exceptions, nearly everything in the system can be changed, modified, added or deleted to create your ideal monitoring environment.
  • "Power Packs" - The built-in packages provide a good level of out of the box functionality.

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.

  • Taking the auto backup of the devices will be one feature I would like to see in it.
  • Running the script on the devices feature will be very useful.
  • Firing the command on set of devices will be an added advantage.

We migrated away from our 20-year-old homegrown solution and have no back-tracking capability.
ScienceLogic is a Cisco Partner and we are supported in ensuring their success.
ScienceLogic is demonstrating new capabilities that we would not have been able to do on our own using our legacy system.
We understand the capabilities of competitors based on our bake-off selection where ScienceLogic won on capabilities and future near-term potential (expandability, platform growth). We know that those competitors are not really close to where we have been able to push ScienceLogic (as a partner).

The core functions are there.
The complexity is due to the complexity of the space.
The score is based on comfort (I no longer notice the legacy UI) and the promise that I see in the 8.12 Unified UI (a vast improvement).
It is also based on the fact that with 8.12, you can now do everything in the new UI but you still have the legacy UI as a fallback (which should now be unnecessary for new installations).
Further, the score is influenced by ScienceLogic being a Cisco Partner and while Cisco IT is a customer, we are also executing on internal expectations to make our partners successful by constructive (and sometimes pressured) criticism to better the platform.

For us, monitoring needs to degrade gracefully. That means that, by design, you allow your monitoring system to begin giving you less and less information until an ultimate failure point. Our motto is Last-Down / First-Up and our deployment architecture reflects specific design choices to minimize being part of someone else's failure-mode.ScienceLogic SL1 at 8.12 provides a wealth of monitoring data. This comes at a cost as you scale up.Can you consume the wealth of monitoring data?Can you consume the wealth of warnings and errors that being to get generated as you scale up?There are challenges, most of which are due to our deployment design choices and scale.We are working with ScienceLogic to introduce Priority as a first-class data element. We've added this as a Custom Attribute for all of our CIs. We use this to distinguish between the failure of a development host vs the failure of our production website.The score represents the known opportunity for improvement that we see on our joint roadmaps.

Care should be taken when creating dashboards which present all of the collected data available to you.We have many routers at work.Almost all of them have 10K interfaces on each one.Creating dashboards which present many different views of many different, large routers can create undue database load. (We're actively discouraging their use as a long-running process because each dashboard widget gets its own database connection, not a shared database connection.) We will kill all long running queries in the database if they run longer than 30 minutes.The database schema design makes interesting trade-off decisions (optimizing for ease of write at the expense of complex / cross-device reads). The new GraphQL schema model looks promising, but we're still waiting for that to begin to appear in the SL1 core functionality.Given enough hardware and budget, you can go a long ways before you start pushing the boundaries of the platform architecture.Being conservative in what you monitor for the vast majority of your CIs allows you to retain compute capacity for dashboards, runbook engines and the like.Having large routers or vCenters will require an upscaling of your data collector sizings just to complete the Device Component Map data collection.

On the Cisco IT side (students), we had a number of teams who were provided the deep developer training.
Of those students, the customized training provided a complete, 5 day training which enabled the Cisco IT platform team to successfully deploy and mitigate user-experience issues for the vast majority of our end-users, including some of the teams who attended the developer training.

The knowledge kept pace with the class and sped up / slowed down (within the time constraints) as needed throughout the course.

This was developer to developer training and for those students who were developers the training worked well. For those who were just coders it probably worked less well as some of the topics still do not apply (a function of our course outline specification based on our knowing nothing).

Due to problems in sequencing we did the developer course BEFORE the admin course and realized that our requested ORDER was wrong.

The onsite admin course was much better received and led to deeper understanding of the developer course held a few weeks prior.

Know your use case.
Know which inherent use case ScienceLogic approaches you with. (They still have a long history of Managed Service Provider that influences their thinking and they are learning to be self-aware and thoughtful about you rather than your deployment being just a templated deploy that they've done many times before.)

They are making progress, but your clear and persistent insistence on deployment according to your use case will help minimize problems.

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.

We vetted many other platforms and continue to do so (SolarWinds, Prognosis IR, Zenoss, etc.) and find ScienceLogic to be the most well-rounded and extensible platform. That means that unlike other platforms that are limited once you roll out the standard offering, ScienceLogic can continue to evolve to handle those other platforms and situations while still providing a solid base functionality for the more common solutions.

Our deployment model is vastly different from product expectations.Our global / internal monitoring foot print is 8 production stacks in dual data centers with 50% collection capacity allocated to each data center with minimal numbers of collection groups.General Collection is our default collection group.Special Collection is for monitoring our ASA and other hardware that cannot be polled by a large number of IP addresses, so this collection group is usually 2 collectors).Because most of our stacks are in different physical data centers, we cannot use the provided HA solution. We have to use the DR solution (DRBD + CNAMEs).We routinely test power in our data centers (yearly).Because we have to use DR, we have a hand-touch to flip nodes and change the DNS CNAME half of the times when there is an outage (by design). When the outage is planned, we do this ahead of the outage so that we don't care that the Secondary has dropped away from the Primary.Hopefully, we'll be able to find a way to meet our constraints and improve our resiliency and reduce our hand-touch in future releases. For now, this works for us and our complexity. (I hear that the HA option is sweet. I just can't consume that.)

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.

  • Flexibility in multi-tenancy allows us to tweak individual customers to allow us to properly alert and avoid SLA penalties for over-ticketing.
  • Provides performance data to reduce overall ecosystem costs in various platforms, such as over or undersized AWS resources.
  • Helps to maintain uptime and detect issues before they can become a full-blown outage, causing loss of faith from customers which ultimately hurts the bottom line.
