When work on OEM, the important thing is know where to click. This book contents lots of words on certain topics without telling how to get the screen.
Two stars is actually too many for this one.
I cannot pay it fully by credit card, have to pay part of credit card and part of amazon gift card.
► Over the years, OEM has gotten far more complex, and this book reflects that growing complexity. EXPERT ORACLE ENTERPRISE MANAGER begins with an overview of the architecture of the tool, then quickly gets into the installation and setup in Chapter 2. The configuration of the OMS and repository naturally comes next. None of this is trivial, and the authors spend a large amount of time explaining this setup.
► Since OEM is a GUI tool, there are not a lot of scripts. Not surprising, since the purpose of OEM is to make life simpler for the DBA. There's a few scripts provided when needed.
► For me, one of the more useful chapters was the fairly large Chapter 4, "Interacting with the EMC12C Console." Screenshots cover everything from logging in to how to customize your setup. There are some sample metrics displays (such as CPU, Active Sessions, etc).
► The main complaint I have is that the quality of the screenshots is a little off--hence only the 4-Star rating. They are generally readable, of course, but a little on the fuzzy side. For example, the screenshot of "OEM Business Service Manager" is pretty blurry, and it's tough to make out the detail. Similarly, the screenshot on the prior page is poor. So, in this regard, I think the quality lags a bit; but admittedly, that is a bit on the picky side, and not too big of an issue. That is the only formatting gripe that I have.
√ All in all, EXPERT ORACLE ENTERPRISE MANAGER 12C is a clear, well-written book on a complicated GUI tool. It's very understandable that a team of writers would be used to write this book. If you want a "quickie" intro book just to get an overview of OEM, this is not the right book. However, if you want a more detailed book that you can use as a reference, this is a good choice. Recommend!
♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
Note: I do not know the authors, and no one requested I write this review.
The Book starts out with an Overview of the Enterprise Manager 12c Product suite. Enterprise manager 12c is a complete rewrite of the and excellent monitoring and management tool. Pete Does an excellent job of explaining EM12c architecture and how it is the one tool you need for Oracle and non oracle products. The New plugin architecture makes it much more convenient to only have what you need deployed . After the Architecture, Gokhan takes us directly into installing the OMS and deployment of the agents. The Discussion on installation is very Linux centric but outside of platform requirements all other things are pretty much the same. Management of the OMS and repository is a very well done chapter and i sue it look up various things i do with the OMS myself. Nial's chapter that starts with diving into how to interact with EM12c is a must read specifically if you are coming from an older version of EM. His comparisons to the old grid control and its nuances are very well documented. Anand and Bobby take on cloud lifecycle management and make it sound so easy. The Software Library Management chapter is a must read and has all the important information that you need to know to setup provisioning and patching in the right manner. Leighton looks at Monitoring best practices in Chap and does a very good job of walking thru a lot of the confusion Jargon (ITIL) that the incident management tool is based off of. The Engineered Systems chapter offer a good glimpse on how to manage and monitor and setup (Setup is a big task) on an engineered system. Kellyn looks at the performance pages and ASH and makes the user seem like a pro with EM. Alex has written the Mysql plugin for EM12c in real life and thus does complete justice with the Metric extension chapter. TO Me Chapter 12 was pretty crucial as it is very hard to understand a lot of the terminology and the incident management chapter provides all you can understand scope of how to tame this beast. The High Availability chapter also provides real world setup options.
My Take on this book is a must have for any DBA to understand and operate OEM and be more productive with the tool that alot of DBA's already have access to but are unable to unlock the potential.
