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 Server & Application Monitor

SolarWinds Server and Application Monitor can be used for any sort of servers or application monitoring such as Windows, Linux, Unix, AIX etc it also do not have any dependency on on-premises, google cloud, AWS or azure. All SAM does is to use the appropriate monitoring method having all pre-requisites in place already.

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 Server & Application Monitor

  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps monitor the status or some of our most important applications. It has the capability of letting us know when an application goes down which helps us fix the issue faster.
  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps monitor the resources on servers. By knowing the key components of the server such as CPU, RAM, and storage, we can forecast whether we need to increase or decrease resources on any server.
  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor helps us by sending real time alerts when issues occur related to servers that we are monitoring.

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 Server & Application Monitor

  • The new node based licensing model makes it difficult to justify the price for nodes that only utilize a few components.
  • Script results need to be a statistic. It would be a lot more useful if we could populate a table of results, including alpha-numeric strings, boolean, etc.
  • A lot of the AppInsight components cannot be disabled. You have to either use the whole template or nothing.

I love the product and the alerts are within the millisecond, which can be the difference between life and death in some cases. As a beginner user, it was difficult getting around or add new hosts to monitor. However, after reading guides an familiarizing myself with the product, I realized how powerful and extremely useful this product. The reason I don't give a 10 is the learning curve.

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is quite easy to use and super versatile. It allows you to do just about anything you can through premade templates or through scripting. You can use an agent on the servers if you want to, or you can monitor through WMI or SNMP credentials. You can customize thresholds for alerting quickly, and you can configure alerts to be as complex or as simple as you want.

I think there was only a couple times I had to open a support case for SAM and one time they got multiple engineers on the phone to get a better idea what I was trying to monitor and was able to point me in the best direction to monitor that system.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

We selected SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor over AppDynamics because SolarWinds product suited our needs better. We needed better infrastructure monitoring and internal application monitoring brought from other vendors. If we wanted to monitor an application that was being developed by our company and we needed to track every transaction of it then we would have gone for AppDynamics, but SolarWinds was a better fit for our use case.

It is hard to find the recommended SQL setup and convince others that is the way you should configure the server when you set it up

  • 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
