The Management Pack Plus for Identity Management helps improve performance and availability, and reduce the cost and complexity of managing Identity Management deployments, including the following environments:

  • Oracle Internet Directory
  • Directory Integration Platform

  • Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition (formerly Sun Java Directory Server Enterprise Edition)

  • Oracle Virtual Directory

  • Oracle Identity Federation
  • Oracle Access Manager

Note:

A management pack license is required to use the features described below in the Enterprise Manager graphical user interface, command-line interface, and published repository views.
Feature Definition
Beacons Measure availability and performance from representative key user locations.
Blackouts Suspend monitoring on targets to support scheduled maintenance periods.
Complete service monitoring Monitor service availability, performance, usage, and service level compliance.
Configuration Track configuration metrics, take configuration snapshots, and compare configurations for Oracle Access Manager 10g components, Oracle Internet Directory 11g, Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g, Oracle Virtual Directory 11g, Oracle Identity Federation 11g, and Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.x, 7.x, and 11gR1.
