To manage and monitor Exadata Cloud Infrastructure and Exadata Database Service on Cloud@Customer resources, use Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control.
For complete documentation and Oracle By Example tutorials, see the following documentation resources: Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control for Oracle Exadata Cloud and Setting Up Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.4 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Overview of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides a complete lifecycle management solution for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's Exadata Cloud Infrastructure (ExaDB-D) and Exadata Database Service on Cloud@Customer (ExaDB-C@C) services.
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control discovers ExaDB-D and ExaDB-C@C services as a single target and automatically identifies and organizes all dependent components. Using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control you can then:
- Monitor and manage all Exadata, ExaDB-D and ExaDB-C@C systems, along with any other targets, from a single interface
- Visualize storage and compute data
- View performance metrics of your Exadata components
Features of Enterprise Manager Cloud Control
Familiarize yourself with the features of Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to manage and monitor Exadata Cloud and Exadata Cloud@Customer resources.
Enterprise Manager Target for Exadata Cloud
The target for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Exadata resources, which covers both Exadata Cloud and Exadata Cloud@Customer does the following:
- Automatically identifies and organizes related targets.
- Provides a high-level integration point for Enterprise Manager framework features such as incident rules, groups, notifications, and monitoring templates.
Improved Performance Monitoring
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control enhances performance monitoring in the following ways:
- Adds Exadata Storage Server and Exadata Storage Grid targets.
- Offers visualization of storage and compute performance for your Exadata Cloud and Exadata Cloud@Customer resources.
- Enables use of the same Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) key performance indicators (KPI) developed for Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
Scripted CLI-based Discovery
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control uses scripts to discover Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Exadata resources. Scripts search the existing hosts, clusters, ASM, databases and related targets, and add the storage server targets.
"Single Pane of Glass" View of On-Premises and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Exadata Resources
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 's use of a single Exadata target type provides a consistent Enterprise Manager experience across on-premises, Exadata Cloud, and Exadata Cloud@Customer resources. The common Exadata target menu allows you to easily navigate to, monitor and manage all of your Exadata systems.
Enterprise Manager Cloud Control allows you to visualize the database and related targets associated with each Exadata Cloud and Exadata Cloud@Customer system.
Analyzing Exadata Cloud Service Database Performance
This topic describes how to use Database Metrics and Performance Hub to monitor, analyze, and tune the performance of OCI user-managed databases, including Oracle Exadata Database Service on Dedicated Infrastructure databases and databases running on virtual machine and bare metal systems.
With this tool, you can view real-time and historical performance data. For information about using Performance Hub, see Using Performance Hub to Analyze Database Performance.
To use Database Metrics and Performance Hub for Exadata Cloud Infrastructure, Virtual Machine, and Bare Metal databases, Database Management must be enabled for the database. When enabling a database, the database administrator can choose from two database management options: Basic Management and Full Management. For information about using Database Metrics and Performance Hub with Virtual Machine, Bare Metal, Exadata Cloud Infrastructure and external databases, see Enable Database Management.
Using Identity and Access Management (IAM), you can create a policy that grants users access to Performance Hub while limiting actions they can take on Autonomous Databases, databases running on virtual machine and bare metal systems, Oracle Database Cloud Service, Exadata Cloud Infrastructure, and external databases. For information about IAM policies and ExaDB-D databases, see Required IAM Policy . For information about policies and how to use them, see How Policies Work.
