System Monitoring Plug-in Installation Guide for Exalogic Elastic Cloud Infrastructure
Oracle Enterprise Manager includes a new target type to represent the Oracle Exalogic appliance as a unit. This target type - Elastic Cloud Infrastructure - contains monitoring and configuration metrics for each discrete component in a fabric. Also, the Elastic Cloud Infrastructure target will expose the network topology through switch ports connectivity configuration metrics.
The Exalogic Elastic Cloud Infrastructure plug-in provides a set of monitoring and configuration metrics representing different infrastructure components. These metrics are collected by the Enterprise Manager agent through the Ops Center JMX client, which is invoked by one of the fetchlets available in partners SDK.
The following details are collected:
Storage appliance details
Compute node details (including associated "Host" target GUID)
Switch ports configuration
Switch rack location
Network topology (switch port - device association metric)
The following Elastic Cloud Infrastructure component availability and performance metrics are collected:
Alerts (all components)
Status (all components)
Power utilization where reported/available (compute nodes)
Temperature where reported/available (compute nodes)
Switch ports throughput
Enterprise Manager Ops Center user-defined group associations
The following prerequisites must be met before you can deploy the plug-in.
To enable Elastic Cloud Infrastructure monitoring in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, each discrete Exalogic rack component (for example, Infiniband switches, ZFS storage appliances, and compute node servers) must be fully managed in the Enterprise Manager Ops Center. The Ops Center should already be configured to collect Cloud Control target information. Also, Cloud Control should deploy an Enterprise Manager agent on each compute node prior to configuring Elastic Cloud Infrastructure discovery.
The Exalogic Elastic Cloud Infrastructure plug-in must be deployed into the Enterprise Manager agent collocated on Ops Center Enterprise Controller host. Once deployed, it communicates with Ops Center's public APIs to discover Exalogic Fabric targets and collect performance and configuration metrics.
See the Plug-in Manager chapter in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide for steps to deploy the plug-in:
