Oracle looks to scale management tool

Oracle looks to scale management tool

Oracle plans to spruce up its Enterprise Manager tool to enable management of greater numbers of databases, a company official has revealed.

The database and applications vendor was planning to preview the product at the International Oracle Users Group conference, IOUG Live, in Orlando this week, Oracle vice-president of databases, Andy Mendelsohn, said.

"Basically, the goal is to make the database invisible to DBAs," Mendelsohn said.

The next generation of Enterprise Manager would allow DBAs to manage larger numbers of databases, Web servers, and other applications, Mendelsohn said.

The company had actually rewritten the product with the next release, he said.

In addition to scalability, other improvements include drill-down capabilities for gauging application performance.

Enterprise Manager has been bundled free with Oracle products such as the company's database and application server. According to Oracle's Web site, the product monitors and performs management tasks for the Oracle product stack, including databases, applications, Web components, and host operating systems

Oracle was not planning to enable Enterprise Manager to manage non-Oracle software such as IBM's DB2 database, but the product did integrate with products such as HP's OpenView management system, that could provide heterogeneous management, Mendelsohn said.
