4 Business Intelligence Management

Enterprise Manager offers the following management pack for Business Intelligence Management:

The following section in this chapter describes the licensed features for this pack.

Business Intelligence Management Pack

This pack provides an integrated solution for ensuring the performance and availability of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (Oracle BI EE). Using the pack, you can receive proactive alerts on impending problems for the application, examine run-time statistics to troubleshoot and tune performance, compare configurations across different environments, and keep track of configuration changes to avoid configuration-related problems.

You can use the pack with other Oracle Enterprise Manager management packs and plug-ins to achieve end-to-end management of the entire application environment, including both Oracle and non-Oracle databases, operating systems, storage, and network devices.

Features

The Business Intelligence Management Pack includes the features shown in Table 4–1.

Table 4-1 Feature Highlights of Oracle Business Intelligence Pack

Feature Benefit

Performance charts

See detailed performance charts in a historical view to perform usage analysis and diagnose production problems.

Dashboards and reports

Visualize in one stop the health status of the BI environment.

Alert notifications

Provide proactive management to improve performance and availability.

Historical metrics

Measure a wide range of usage and performance metrics for monitored Oracle BI targets, send out alerts when these metrics exceed or nearly exceed pre-defined thresholds, and diagnose performance problems by identifying bottlenecks in any of the monitored Oracle BI targets.

Blackouts

Suppress unnecessary alerts during maintenance windows, and provide more accurate availability reporting.

O/S monitoring

Provide complete end-to-end management of the application environment.

Automatic discovery

Speed up the management pack setup for quicker time-to-benefit.

Configuration snapshot

Allow known effective configuration information to be retained for future analysis. Save configurations to a configuration file (XML file) or to the Management Repository.

Configuration comparison

Get quicker configuration diagnostics. Use Configuration Comparison to:

  • Replicate configuration in development/staging to production.

  • Make sure that configuration settings amongst Oracle BI components in a clustered environment are consistent.

Change history

Search collected configuration data and view the history of configuration changes for diagnostic and regulatory purposes.

Service tests and beacons

Record service tests to simulate key end-user activities, and activiely measure performance and availability from an end-user perspective.

Service level rule

Define service-level objectives based on business requirements.

Dashboard reports

Provide key query statistics for usage trending analysis, enabling you to view detailed information about the top dashboards and top users by resource usage.

Besides usage trending, these reports can help you diagnose performance problems by showing a complete listing of failed dashboards, along with the error code/message and SQL statements associated with the failed queries, and a breakdown of dashboard response time based on database time, compile time, and overall time for end-user queries.
