11g Manage System Parameters

Oracle 11g New Features Tips by Donald BurlesonJune 28, 2015

Oracle 11g New Features Tips

Figure 4.15 below shows the system parameters that are available to the DBA.  To access the System Parameters interface click the Schema tab, then Workspaces. Also, Under Related Links, the System Parameters option can be found.

Privilege Management

Granting privileges on Workspaces can also be achieved within 11g OEM, as shown in Figure 4.16.

OEM is a management tool for DBAs that extends beyond the database.  An academic definition of management includes the activities of planning, organizing, controlling and directing.  OEM is able to provide the DBA with the ability to plan for growth, organize data, control access and data usage and direct the RDBMS through a fairly intuitive interface.

However, becoming familiar with Oracle Enterprise Manager requires an investment of time on the part of the DBA.  This investment is well advised considering the benefits provided by this ever evolving tool. 

E.F. Codd said that future users of large databases must be protected from having to know how the data is organized in the machine.  OEM helps remove the DBA from having to know extensive operating system commands.  OEM also provides a management interface between the DBA and the underlying database and operating system.  This is significant because it nearly eliminates the need for experience with burdensome OS command line syntax that is required to display server-side information.  These commands are obviously different between Windows, UNIX and Linux, and offers variances between flavors of Linux.

Oracle Enterprise Manager gives a first glimpse of the 482 new features introduced in Oracle 11g.  Many of these new features can be configured and taken advantage of within OEM. 

The new features of OEM covered in this chapter were:

  • Improved Database Home Page and Performance changes

  • Integrated Interface for LogMiner

  • Advanced Replication Interface

  • Wait Activity Detail Enhancement

  • Easy Oracle Text Management

  • Better OEM Grid Tools

  • Clone Database Enhancements

  • Migrate Database (and more!) to ASM

  • Workspace Manager


This is an excerpt from the new book Oracle 11g New Features: Expert Guide to the Important New Features by John Garmany, Steve Karam, Lutz Hartmann, V. J. Jain, Brian Carr.
