Let’s clear about this: Oracle Management Cloud (OMC) is NOT a replacement of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control (OEM CC) or even an equivalant. Rumours are that this will be Oracle’s policy in a far away future, but in the meantime we focus on what they do best. OEM CC is a product for a complete management solution for your Oracle environment, OMC for monitoring and, most of all, analyse the monitored data in your Oracle environment.
Oracle made it possible to connect these worlds by using the data of the repository of OEM CC in OMC. And that’s what this post is about.
In a previous blog about monitoring Infrastructure with OMC I installed an OMC-cloud agent on a server with OEM CC with the repository database on it.
Through this OMC-cloud agent it’s possible to monitor the assets – in a nice gui – but what I’d really like to do is use the data in the OEM CC – repository for the analytical power of Oracle Management Cloud.
My infrastructure monitoring is working since this blog by installing an OMC-cloud agent. The question is however, do I have to install an OMC-cloud agent on every node, and connect every node to the OMC? A part of that is true. A cloud agent is necessary on every node, but they all can be directed to 1 node where a central gateway has been installed for connection to OMC. But of course you also can install a data collector for information from the Oracle Enterprise Manager Repository.
