Oracle Enterprise Manager Key Concepts and Subsystems

by Arvind Maheshwari Debu Panda | August 2010 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

In this article, Oracle Enterprise Manager Key Concepts and Subsystems by Debu Panda and Arvind Maheshwari, authors of Middleware Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control 10g R5, we'll learn about major processes and subsystems of Enterprise Manager Grid Control, and the concepts behind those subsystems. Generally enterprise software is composed of many technical and functional subsystems. Many of the technical and functional subsystems need to be tweaked or customized according to the needs of a particular enterprise. Good enterprise software is one that provides useful out-of-the-box features that need minimal or no customizations of the subsystems, and at the same time provides flexibility for customizations.

Most often we see that, while using enterprise software, System Administrators discover an un-documented feature, or use an existing feature or a subsystem in an innovative way. This helps to get better returns on the investment made on the enterprise software. The subsystems that we'll be covering in this article are as follows:

  • Target
  • Monitoring
  • Configuration Management
  • Jobs
  • Notification
  • Provisioning
  • Service Level Management
  • Information publishing

Oracle GoldenGate 11g: Configuration for High Availability

by John P Jeffries | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

High Availability (HA) has become an important factor in computer system design in recent years. Systems can't afford to be down, not even for a minute, as they may be mission critical, life supporting, regulatory, or the financial impact may be too great to bear. Oracle has played a major role in developing a number of HA solutions, one of which is Real Application Clusters (RAC). Oracle Streams is heavily integrated with RAC out of the box and requires no additional configuration. This is not true for GoldenGate, where the Manager process has to be made "RAC aware".

In this article by John P. Jeffries, author of Oracle GoldenGate Implementer's Guide, we learn how to configure GoldenGate in a RAC environment and explore the various components that effectively enable HA for data replication and integration.

Oracle GoldenGate 11g: Performance Tuning

by John P Jeffries | March 2011 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

Performance tuning is one of the main aspects of any IT project. Many leave it to the end and then realize that it is not possible to make the necessary changes without significant additional investment or time constraints. Performance must be considered at the beginning and throughout the lifetime of your project. Closely coupled to the design, this article hones in on individual performance tuning methods.

In this article by John P. Jeffries, author of Oracle GoldenGate Implementer's Guide, we learn the following:

  • Balancing load across multiple processes
  • Splitting large or transaction intensive tables across parallel process groups
  • Adding additional Replicats to a process group
  • Improving Replicat throughput by reducing commit delay
  • Exploring the GoldenGate 11.1.1 new features

Oracle GoldenGate: Considerations for Designing a Solution

by John P Jeffries | February 2011 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

The most important step in any IT development project is the design. This must be the first step as changes to the design at a later stage will cost time and money. Get the design right and your system will continue to perform well as the user base increases.

In this article by John P. Jeffries, author of Oracle GoldenGate Implementer's Guide, we will discuss the following areas to help answer some of the questions that influence the decision making process.

  • Methods for replicating data: What do we want to achieve?
  • Networking: How do we make our solution resilient to network outages?
  • Performance and scalability: Will our solution support future non functional requirements?
  • Backup and recovery: Can we restore service quickly with no data loss?
  • Hardware: What is the size of our budget? Do we need powerful servers? Can we cluster lower spec machines?

Oracle Integration and Consolidation Products

by Tom Laszewski | August 2011 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

In early 2010, when you went to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) website, it had just one link called Information Integration. This link led you to a simple web page that had information on Oracle-to-Oracle database-centric migration and integration tools such as SQL Loader, Data Pump, Oracle Streams, and Oracle Data Guard. The OTN website has been updated, but still lacks comprehensive coverage of the Oracle Information Integration stack.

In the previous article by Tom Laszewski, co-author of Oracle Information Integration, Migration, and Consolidation, we took a look at some oracle tools and products. In this article we will take a look at data services, data consolidation, data grid, information lifecycle management, oracle-to-oracle data integration, and application integration.
