19.1 Overview: Managing the Manager

Although Enterprise Manager functions as a single entity to manage your IT infrastructure, in reality it is composed of multiple components working in concert to provide a complete management framework from a functional standpoint. All major components of Enterprise Manager have been grouped into a single system. A special set of services has been created (based on the system) to model Enterprise Manager functions.
