Console Graphical User Interface

The Oracle Enterprise Manager Console has a graphical user interface that provides menus, toolbars, launch palettes, and the framework to allow access to Oracle tools, plus utilities available through other vendors. The menus, toolbars, and palettes are context-sensitive.

Item   Function  

Menus

 

The Console menus primarily manipulate objects in the Console windows.

The Console menu bar provides access to the Navigator, Map, Job, Event, and database administration (DBA) applications.

 

Toolbars

 

The toolbars provide graphic icons that represent most of the menu items.

You can move the mouse cursor over an icon to display the description of the icon's function in the status bar at the bottom of the Console.

 

Palettes

 

The Tools palette is primarily used to execute applications and utilities and contains graphic representations of the Tools menu items.

The launch palettes contain the applications that you can launch from the Enterprise Manager Console.

You can move the mouse cursor over an icon to display the description of the icon's function in the status bar at the bottom of the Console.

 

Console Windows

The Console contains four windows that provide a general view of the system being managed and an interface to the Enterprise Manager common services.

The windows are the Navigator window, the Map window, the Job Scheduling System window, and the Event Management System window.

ole Windows section contains the following topics.

Navigator Window

The Navigator window provides:

The Navigator discovers and displays a tree list (a hierarchical view) of all the objects in a network, providing a direct view of objects. Objects include nodes, databases, listeners, users, roles, and profiles. The tree list provides a direct view of the nodes and services on the network and any objects they contain.

Note:

For detailed information on the Navigator window, refer to Chapter 2, "Navigator," of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide.

Map Window

The Map window provides a customized, graphical representation of key objects created by an administrator to manage and monitor a subset or group of objects in the system.

With the Map system, you can create, save, modify, and recall views of the network. Objects can be grouped together based on any criteria, simplifying all operations performed on the group members. You simply drag and drop objects from the Navigator into the Map view to create the various groups that you want to monitor.

The map is especially useful for the environments with very many databases and is also used to visually represent problems detected by the Event Management System.

Note:

See Chapter 3, "Job and Event Systems" for more information on the Job Scheduling System and the Event Management System. For detailed information on the Map window, refer to the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide.

Job Scheduling Window

The Job Scheduling window is the user interface to the Job Scheduling System which enables you to automate repetitive tasks and provides the kind of "lights out" management which is vital in a large, distributed environment.

Job Scheduling allows you to manage job scheduling among the databases, listeners, and nodes that you are administering. Using the menus, property sheets, and dialog boxes of the Job Scheduling window, you can schedule or cancel a job and view its status, or review historical information about jobs.

Jobs can be scheduled at various times, such as daily or weekly, and at single or multiple destinations. Using the Job Scheduling system, you can also create and manage job scripts.

The Job window contains the following pages of information:

Job Windows   Function  

Active Jobs

 

Contains a summary of the active jobs on the network. These are jobs that you have submitted to the job system and are not yet completed. The job listed in the Active Jobs page is the one that is currently scheduled or running.

 

Job History

 

Contains a list of previous job activities, such as multiple executions of a job. These are jobs that have been submitted to an agent and have executed successfully or unsuccessfully. This page also lists deleted jobs.

 

Job Library

 

Contains a list of the jobs that you have created and saved. These jobs can be submitted to the job system at a later date. This is useful if you want to submit the same job at different times.

 

Note:

See Chapter 3, "Job and Event Systems" for more information on the Job Scheduling System. For detailed information on the Job window, see the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide.

Event Management Window

In the Event Management window, you can create and register event sets, modify or cancel registrations, view the status of services being monitored, view summary information about events that have occurred, and further manage event information.

You can choose to have the events of interest represented graphically on the console when they are detected. The system can also notify you through e-mail or page. You can also create a job that you specify to be run to automatically fix the problem.

The Event window contains the following pages of information:

Event Window Pages   Function  

Outstanding Events

 

Displays event sets that have been applied and have occurred.

 

Event History

 

Displays a history of events that have occurred and have been acknowledged by an administrator or cleared by an agent.

 

Registrations Page

 

Displays the event sets that have been applied and registered to monitor events on any network objects.

 

Event Set Library Page

 

Displays the event sets that have been created.

 

Note:

See Chapter 3, "Job and Event Systems" for more information on the Event Management System. For detailed information on the Event menu and window, refer to Chapter 5, "Event Management," in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide.
