1 Introduction to Monitoring Exadata Cloud Service

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides a complete cloud lifecycle management solution for Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service and Oracle Database Exadata Cloud at Customer, collectively Exadata Cloud Service.

Note:

To monitor Oracle Exatadata Database Machine using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, see Oracle Exadata Database Machine Getting Started Guide.

Overview and Architecture

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control provides an integrated monitoring solution for the various layers of Exadata Cloud Service. The end users have access to select components of the service such as the databases, hosts, and ASM. The hardware components like physical servers and network interfaces are monitored and managed by Oracle.

The following diagram shows the various components of Exadata Cloud Service, and their access control and management:

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control discovers Exadata Cloud Service as a single target and automatically identifies and organizes all its dependent components. Using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control you can then:

  • Monitor and manage all Exadata, Exadata Cloud systems along with any other targets, from a single interface
  • Visualize storage and compute data
  • View performance metrics of your Exadata components

Features
