VCS plugin for EM12c

Just had some busy weeks, almost forgot to share this document with you guys, written by my good friend Scott Wardrop.

The VCS Cluster Mintoring Plug-in for Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides centralised visibility of Symantec VCS Cluster environments, giving administrators a singe view on component availability and performance at both a cluster and estate level.

Montoring and alerting of VCS components is enabled out-of-the-box

After creation and testing of your job definition you would than want to export the Job definition to your Production environment.

EM now allows us to do so!

Read more on this feature on Oracle’s blog on EM, in this article Job System Easter Eggs written by Adeesh Fulay.



EM12c – Service Level Management – 1

The next 2-3 days I will be spending some time in showing you guys some of the new features that have been introduced in the SLM area.

Up to release SLM in EM12c was a bit ‘behind’ when it comes to refined intuitive UI, and clear and understandable insight.

Allow me to give you a brief overview…

All former UIX pages have been replaced by ADF.

  • Performance / Incidents page
  • SLA Dashboard
  • Test summary page
  • Service Topology
  • Blackout creation
  • Blackout ending
