We primarily use OEM for the job repository and running jobs against the enterprise. We also use OEM for performance monitoring which enables SAs to make better use of their time.
  • Job scheduling.
  • Performance monitoring.
  • Corrective action.
  • Too many behind the scenes ports and protocols required to enable full functionality of OEM in most environments.
It is well suited for monitoring many databases and servers across an enterprise. The ability to drill down and analyze performance problems is very helpful.

Enterprise Manager Cloud Review

Score 10 out of 10

Oracle Enterprise Manager is used to manage our Oracle Database, MySQL, and on-prem IT infrastructure that includes both Oracle and non-Oracle components and cloud deployment including OCI.
  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is best in breed to manage and monitor Oracle IT assets including Oracle Database and Oracle Cloud.
  • It is also able to monitor non-Oracle components as well including non-Oracle storage, middleware, and virtualization technologies.
  • It has a simple UI that can be used to pretty much do most basic management and IT life cycle management tasks for the full IT stack, both on-prem and cloud.
  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control can do a better job in actively managing (as opposed to monitoring) non-Oracle IT components including non-Oracle Database, middleware, and storage.
  • The UI is less responsive and sometimes slow and the user experience could certainly be improved.
  • There is also an issue with positioning as other Oracle products sometimes come with their own versions of management console so it is hard to justify paying for Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control separately or as a new attachment.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is well suited when you need a single console to manage a full IT stack, especially when most of the components in the IT stack are Oracle products.

Power packed single point of control and administration for enterprise solutions

We are using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control for End to End monitoring of our physical servers, Exadata Database Machines, Middleware products and Web Servers. Although OEM Cloud Control supports non-Oracle software products most of our products being monitored are Oracle.
  • Out of box monitoring templates are extremely useful. You can use these templates to create your own custom templates.
  • I am a big fan of new administrative groups. This makes addition of new targets convenient and applies monitoring templates and incident rules directly on them.
  • Its very sophisticated products with lots of monitoring and administrative tools. The performance monitoring is just great. We totally depend on OEM for performance monitoring.
  • This product comes with so much features and options that it makes it very heavy, resource intensive and slow.
  • Global Repeat Notification settings are truly global and applies to both warning and critical thresholds. We wanted to setup different settings of repeat notifications for warning and critical thresholds. This is not possible as of now.
OEM Cloud Control is well suited as a single point of control for both monitoring and administration of medium to large enterprise implementation. However, if your implementation is considerably small and is with restricted budget, OEM Cloud Control may not be the best choice due to high pricing.

It's powerful, easy to learn, and free! (Database Enterprise Edition**)

We have Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition for our databases. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control is free to use with Enterprise Edition given that you have bought diagnostic and tuning packs with your database license.

We are using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c for monitoring our database infrastructure which includes Physical Database Servers, CPU, Disk I/O, Memory and Database Services. We are using OEM Cloud Control for real-time database system monitoring and diagnostics.
  • Monitoring Templates: There are out of box monitoring templates for each target types, you can customize them or use them as it is.
  • Administrative Groups: This is a relatively new feature in OEM Cloud Control. This lets you create and manage your targets and monitoring templates smarter and with less re-work.
  • DB Monitoring: There are so many cool DB monitoring features and visual graphics, that it can be used by both DBA and functional people to see what's going on in the database.
  • OEM doesn't delete old fault alerts by itself. You have to go to the command line "emcli" to find those problems and faults and delete them manually. This can be achieved by creating and scheduling a periodic shell script as well.
I wish I had an option to give it a 9.5 :) OEM Cloud Control is very well suited if you have a system with multiple implementations of Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.

If you are willing to pay for the huge license cost which is typical with Oracle, then you will love to use OEM Cloud Control to monitor your entire ERP solution including web servers, applications, network, storage, and physical servers.

It is not worth the buck if your's is a small implementation. Your DBA's should be able to work without depending on OEM Cloud Control.

OEM Cloud Control: a must-have for Oracle shops

Score 10 out of 10

In our organization Enterprise Manager is used by many groups within IT. This includes the DBA team, Identity Management, Systems Administration and Security. From a business perspective, it allows us to manage our Oracle environment with fewer resources. It has become a "one stop shop" for administrative jobs, proactive monitoring of our environment and performance tuning.

Our Identity Management team takes care of creating new users across our organization whether they be faculty, staff or students. We have tens of thousands of users so having the ability to view settings and create like is invaluable. Systems administrators notoriously use very few GUI tools. Enterprise Manager Cloud Control shows graphical representations of things like CPU and disk usage which is an easier way of reporting resource needs to upper management.

Our security team is constantly running jobs to check for vulnerabilities. Using this tool they can make sure that they are not negatively affecting performance.
  • Oracle Enterprise Manager is a "one stop shop" for all of our management needs. This is helpful because it minimizes the management of the management software itself. There are less upgrades and connectivity issues to handle. And there are "plug-ins" for additional products we use like Blue Medora's one for PostgreSQL.
  • Managing administrative jobs can be burdensome in a shop with dozens of servers and databases. OEM Cloud Control makes it easy since you can view all the jobs for all servers in one place. It is easy to filter on jobs with problems or the like so that you can quickly look at the logs and fix the issues.
  • Tuning PL/SQL is much easier using OEM Cloud Control. Most DBAs are familiar with trace files and TKPROF, but not having to do those things at a command line smooths the process out. The graphical interface makes it easier to show developers exactly what the issues are. This makes for less finger-pointing and quicker resolution of performance problems.
  • Proactive management is easier using OEM Cloud Control. Before having the gui, I had a collection of scripts that I would have to install on each database server, then set up cron jobs to run them. When Oracle was upgraded, those scripts might have to be updated on each and every server. OEM Cloud Control has those things built in. You can choose exactly which metrics are important to you. And you can keep performance graphs up all day on a second monitor to let you instantly see when something might cause a problem.
  • Monitoring the Oracle RAC environment is one area where Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control needs to improve, especially in the area of monitoring database sessions. It is not always clear when searching if you are seeing things for the cluster, or just one instance. You must make a conscience effort to be sure you are looking at the sessions you intend to be viewing. It would be much better if it always showed sessions from all nodes with a column identifying the node they are from...
  • It would be nice to have a "build your own dashboard" feature in OEM Cloud Control. We monitor many servers and databases. Some are more critical than others. It would be nice to be able to create one screen with the key item from 3 or 4 critical servers showing on it.
  • Oracle needs to improve the agents for Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. We have run into some bugs that require the agent to be restarted. It would be nice if there was an auto restart feature.
OEM Cloud Control is a must-have for large Oracle shops with lots of servers and databases to manage. In those organizations it saves time and therefore money. However, it is more of a luxury purchase in small shops with a limited budget. If the organization can afford it, it is the first tool they should buy.
