April 17, 2014 Monthly Meeting.

Thursday April 17, 2014
7:00 PM
Bobby Curtis; Senior Technical Consultant, Enkitec

Topic:  Golden Gate Monitoring

During this session, we will take a look at the different number of techniques available for monitoring Oracle Golden Gate 12c while keeping operational awareness as the main focus.  Reviewing the different use cases, the complexity of monitoring for these environments increase and lead to different monitoring approaches.  By taking a look at different monitoring techniques, manual, scripting, and graphical user interfaces (GUI), we can identify scalable monitoring solutions for any environment. By the end of the session, we should have an understanding of different monitoring approaches and when it is best to use different approaches to ensure success of Oracle Golden Gate 12c implementations and data quality.

NOTE: New Meeting location for our April 2014 meeting!  Our meeting will be at:

Atlanta City Hall
55 Trinity Ave SW
Atlanta, GA.

Annual Oracle users conference COLLABORATE 14 - IOUG Forum will take place in Las Vegas from April 7-11, 2014 at the Venetian and Sands Expo Center.  This is a once-a-year opportunity to connect with the members of not one but three Oracle users groups (IOUG, OAUG and Quest) as well as with the top names and faces in the Oracle community.

For 20 years, IOUG has delivered a unique event with leading-edge content for Oracle technology users.  We fully anticipate that the COLLABORATE 14 - IOUG Forum will meet and exceed the high watermark set by COLLABORATE 13, which had over 5,500 attendees, 1,000 presentations and a full week of great events and networking opportunities. We look forward to bringing together our engaged, expert user community in April 2014!

Topic:  Capacity Planning: How to Leverage OEM12c for Engineered Systems

The question of current capacity utilization is important to organizations undergoing a consolidation effort. We often receive customers request for capacity planning reports on Exa Appliances that we manage. If one were you use Oracle’s On-Demand services, this information might be easily available. On the other hand, those who intend to and trend on captured metrics by Oracle’s Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control platform, there are a number of useful features and tricks to extract the information. OEM views, Chargeback capabilities and, BI Reports tool are leveraged to extract – with a hierarchical overview – past and future trends for capacity and resource planning efforts on several targets especially for an Exa Appliance. The information would be particularly useful for business owners to decide on additional hardware purchases.
