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.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

It is best suited for batch jobs processing databases and maintains on-premise infrastructure. It will only be less appropriate if the organization or company is completely running databases on a managed cloud platform as there are available tools for monitoring systems health. However, it is also useful for cost optimization for cloud database users. It is also beneficial to operations to easily pinpoint the performance related issue and prevent ping pong with developers.

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.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Top N SQL queries.
  • Outstanding UI for rapid examination and drill down to detail data.
  • Intuitive UI design - better than any other product in its category.
  • Enabled us to immediately shift DB related performance matters first to developers so that our DBA's can focus on more important matters.

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.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Can't think of any feature or ops related issues. Prior complaints have all been addressed in newer updates.
  • Only main complaint is cost -- we would adopt for other servers if the incremental cost wasn't so high for a few additional instances (we have 3 servers we would like to use DPA with, but can't justify the x3 pricing per instance).

It allows us to have peace of mind that the servers are constatnly being monitored around the clock and that we can always go bcak in time and research if we missed something.

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.

Idera looks like they are headed to a similar end product. However, their product is not as mature. Solarwinds Database Performance Monitor is an acquisition of an already mature product upon which they added value by integrating it with their extensive software base and their amazing community. I haven't found any other products that do wait based sql analysis.

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.

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • DPA is licensed per instance analyzed so, for us, only the higher priority database servers are monitored.
  • DPA is not dependent on Orion, but integrates with it. This means if you don't need all of the cool features of Orion and want to just pay to monitor the database instances then you can install it all by itself.
