Introduction to Oracle Intelligent Agent for OEM

Using and configuring Oracle Intelligent Agent for OEM

Note to visitor:
Oracle Intelligent Agent existed for Oracle versions 8.1.5, Oracle 8i, and Oracle 9i. For Oracle 10g the Intelligent Agent does not exist. For Oracle 10g there is a different agent, the Enterprise Manager 10g agent. You deploy only one Oracle 10g agent per host, and the agent will monitor your
  1. databases,
  2. file systems and
  3. operating system.
You can have both agents running, the Intelligent Agent (8i/9i) and the Grid Control Agent (10g). Oracle Intelligent Agent for versions 8i, 9i cannot be upgraded to 10g. Instead, you have to configure your Grid and the Oracle 10g agent uses HTTP.
The agents from the previous Oracle versions like 8i, 9i are not compatible with Oracle 10g. The legacy Oracle versions such as Oracle 8i, 9i do not use the same port and protocol ().

Control Utility: Listener Control Utility
Description: These commands controlled the Oracle Intelligent Agent for use with Oracle Enterprise Manager. You can now control the Oracle Intelligent Agent through the Oracle Enterprise Manager Console.

This module takes a close look at Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM). OEM is designed to be a centralized console from which you can display and monitor all the databases in your environment. Because all the components connect to OEM via Oracle Net Services, understanding the OEM console is an important part of Oracle networking.
The module begins with a brief tour of the OEM console, visiting the four quadrants of the OEM display:
  1. The Navigator window displays all schema information for each database.
  2. The Job Scheduling window allows the Oracle DBA to schedule remote database tasks.
  3. The Map window provides a graphical map of your entire distributed Oracle database topology.
  4. The Event Management window allows for the definition of customized alerts.
We will then turn our attention to the distributed networking capabilities of the Event Manager Console.

Learning Objectives

After completing this module, you will be able to:
  1. Define an Intelligent Agent on each remote server.
  2. Use the event manager console to attach to the intelligent agents that run on the remote servers.
  3. Define alert thresholds in the event manager console.
The next lesson provides an overview of the OEM console.
