Oracle 11g OEM new features

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonMay 16, 2015

Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) has introduced quite a few new 11g management features into the OEM GUI interface.  For complete details on Oracle11g new OEM features, see the book "Oracle 11g New Features" by Rampant TechPress.  The most prominent 11g OEM new features include:

  • Interface OEM to Foreign 3rd party Applications - IN 11g, OEM interfaces to Siebel and PeopleSoft Corp. -- into a single platform."
  • OEM Easy de-install - In 11g, OEM will uninstall both successful and unsuccessful Oracle installs.
  • OEM MOSC Support workbench - In 11g, OEM interfaces directly with My Oracle Support Community (MOSC), formally MetaLink.  Once the Automatic Diagnostic Repository (ADR) has detected and reported a critical problem, the DBA can interrogate the ADR, report on the source of the problem, and in some cases even implement repairs.
  • Database repair wizard - A GUI to guide beginners through the steps to diagnose and repair Oracle issues.
  • Better OEM Grid tools - Another new Oracle11g feature may be improved RAC and Grid monitoring, especially on the cache fusion interconnect.
  • Improved Database Home Page
  • Performance changes
  • Integrated Interface for LogMiner
  • Advanced Replication Interface
  • Wait Activity Detail Enhancement
  • Easy Oracle Text Management
  • Clone Database
  • Migrate Database to ASM - 11g OEM has a utility to allow fast migration of data files into ASM.
  • OEM Workspace Manager

From Porus Havewala, author of Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control, we see these additional details on OEM new features in 11g:

Comprehensive Middleware Management: This release delivers enhanced support for managing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, including full configuration management and provisioning for large-scale Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle WebLogic Server environments. Oracle WebLogic Server is often used in an "application grid" environment, or as the foundation for a private cloud. Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g can greatly simplify the management and provisioning of such deployments, including the private cloud.

New Database Management Capabilities: Providing full support for Oracle Database 11g Release 2, including compression, change detection, partitioning, diagnostics, and tuning. Oracle Exadata-aware SQL monitoring and I/O resource management for Oracle Exadata Version 2 is also featured.

Extensive Hardware, Virtualization and Operating System Management: Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, for managing Sun hardware and Oracle Solaris, covers the entire lifecycle of physical and virtual Sun environments including Oracle VM for SPARC (formerly known as Logical Domains or LDoms) and Solaris Containers, enabling customers to maximize the utilization of their Sun systems. As per Chung Wu from Oracle "We have delivered the first set of integration between Enterprise Manager Grid Control and Enterprise Manager Ops Center so that hardware level events can be centrally monitored via Grid Control."

Application Quality Management: New Oracle Application Testing Suite Release 9.1, automates test script generation based on real user actions; provides access to middleware diagnostics during load test to help identify performance bottlenecks; provides a new testing accelerator to simplify testing of applications based on Oracle ADF; and offers a new test starter kit for Oracle E-Business Suite R12 applications, to help reduce testing effort.

Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g also includes a new release 6.5 of Oracle Real User Experience for user experience management, Business transaction management with the ability to drill down to and monitor transactions through IT tiers, and more powerful business service management. The catchword is Business Driven Application Management.

The OEM integration with My Oracle Support Community (MOSC) is also enhanced. New 11g OEM components for MOSC include::

OEM Smart Configuration Management: Offers complete configuration lifecycle management and discovery with real-time change detection for compliance. It can simultaneously analyze millions of customer configurations and provide IT professionals with real-time notification of potential problems.

OEM Automated Workflow: Enables the selection, validation and deployment of patches across the entire IT environment, allowing IT to help reduce the risk and effort needed to implement recommendations and fixes.

Community-Based OEM Console: Facilitates best practice sharing and knowledge exchange with other members of the IT community.

One of the catchwords is also Integrated Application-to-Disk Management. This means complete management of the Oracle stack, including tools to manage Oracle Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database, Oracle Solaris, Oracle Enterprise Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle's Sun Servers. This enables IT to quickly identify root cause and, in many cases, automatically resolve issues.

As per Chung Wu from Oracle "For composite and Java application management, two key pieces of technologies, JVM Diagnostic and Composite Application Monitoring and Modeler, are now fully integrated into Enterprise Manager so there is no need to install and maintain separate tools."
