DBaaS RESTful API Cook Book

Having a GUI tool like Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to manage your entire data center is an imperative for most enterprises these days. But in the cloud paradigm, you must also have a uniform API that can be used to tailor the cloud to your business processes and economic models. That API is known as the REST API, and services based on that are known as RESTful services.

EM13c DBaaS, Part 1 On-Premise and the Test Master

With EM13c, DBaaS has never been easier.  No matter if you’re solution is on-premise, hybrid, (on-premise to the cloud and back) or all cloud, you’ll find that the ability to take on DevOps challenges and ease the demands on you as the DBA is viewed as the source of much of the contention.

Advances in Data Clone and Refresh in EM13c

Enterprise Manager 12c introduced a lot of functionality around cloning Oracle databases and refreshing the data once it was cloned. You can see some of the earlier material I have posted on this area in the following posts:

Enterprise Manager STIG Compliance Standards for Oracle Database 11gR2

This is the second of the two posts I wanted to copy from Dave Wolf’s web site. As I mentioned in the first of these two posts, Dave is a colleague of mine who used to own the DBLM area as far as the Enterprise Manager product management team is concerned. However, he has moved to another area in Oracle and I have inherited his responsibilities for change management, compliance management and configuration management, so I want to make sure this material remains available. This post was originally written in April, 2015, and relates to the STIG compliance standards for Oracle Database 11gR2. I’ll be updating this material with another blog in the next month or so with information on the latest STIG compliance standards, so stayed tuned for that! But here’s Dave’s earlier post:

Enterprise Manager 13c, System Broadcast

I thought this was kind of a cool feature- the ability to send a message to appear to specific or all users in the Cloud Control Console.  I have to admit that I used to like a similar feature in Microsoft/MSSQL to send network broadcast messages to desktops that offered one more way to get information to users that they might be less inclined to miss.

EM12c Compliance ‘Required Data Available’ flag – Understanding and Troubleshooting

This is the first of two posts in the area of compliance management that has been previously published by a colleague of mine, Dave Wolf. Dave has moved to another part of Oracle now, and I’ve inherited some of his reponsibilities as product manager, including change management, compliance management and configuration management, so I wanted to copy his material to my blog so it’s not lost. Thanks Dave, for putting this material together originally!

Enterprise Manager 13c, “Webtier Could Not Be Started”

Let’s say you’re on call and you’re woke from a deep, delightful sleep from the pager, stating the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control isn’t available.

Displaying CPU Graphs For Different Time Ranges in Enterprise Manager

This question was posted in Twitter from @matvarsh30, who asked, “How can I display CPU usage over different periods of time for databases in Enterprise Manager?”

Management Packs, Restricted Use Licenses and the Enterprise Manager

There was a question posted on Oracle-l forum today that should have a blog post for easy lookup for folks.

Updated BI Publisher material

Just a quick note to say the material covered on my BI Publisher page has been updated to include some links specific to EM13c. If you can’t be bothered heading over to that page, here are the two new links </p />
