In this module, you learned that Oracle Enterprise Manager is Oracle’s GUI solution for managing Oracle databases.
The DBA Management Pack is part of the base product, and consists of the following five applications:
- Instance Manager
- Storage Manager
- Security Manager
- Schema Manager
- SQLPlus Worksheet
You learned that each application is targeted at one specific domain, or area, of database administration.
The four Manager
applications have an interface divided into two panes. The left-hand pane contains a navigation tree similar to that used in Windows Explorer. The right-hand pane changes as you move through the tree to show information about the currently highlighted object, or category of objects.
Throughout the next three courses, you will find that lessons and simulations covering various aspects of OEM are woven into the various modules. As you learn to manage Oracle via the command-line, you also will learn how to use Enterprise Manager to perform the same functions.
