Enterprise IT is moving to the Cloud. With tens, hundreds even thousands of servers in the Cloud, monitoring the uptime, performance and quality of the Cloud infrastructure becomes a challenge that traditional monitoring tools struggle to solve. Enter Zabbix. Zabbix is a low footprint, low impact, open source monitoring tool that provides various notification types and integrates easily with your ticketing system.
During the webinar, we'll cover the following topics:
- Installation and configuration of Zabbix in the Cloud
- Monitoring Oracle databases using Zabbix
- How to use Zabbix templates to increase the quality and efficiency of your monitoring setup
- How to setup Zabbix for large and remote networks
- How to trigger events in Zabbix
- Graphing with Zabbix
Last week we released a new cloud service - the Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.
(I'll refer to is as ABCS here to keep it short).
ABCS is built for the non-professional developer, what some call the citizen developer, giving them a solution to very quickly build and publish applications that can address immediate business needs. As you'll see in the demo below, a UI first approach makes development very simple.
I recorded a quick demo to show you just the basics of app development and wet your appetite.
As you'll see ABCS makes it dead simple to create Web apps, define business objects that you want to track (implemented as tables in an Oracle cloud database instance), and fine tune the UI creating multiple forms. The underlying UI technology of both ABCS and the apps that it creates is Oracle JET.
Note that in this video I didn't cover the steps to actually stage and then publish your application so other users can access it - another thing that ABCS makes simple. On these and other capabilities in future blogs...
Phone Home feature for Engineered System View the ASR Demo Video.
ASR resolves problems faster by automatically opening service requests for Oracle's qualified server, storage, and Engineered Systems when specific faults occur.
Note: From EM13c onwards ASR is integrated directly.
How to use ASR
1. ASR can be installed in External system Linux or Solaris. (Small RPM package) We can install it in our OMS box.
2. Requires communnication between ExaData Assets where ASR monitoring is valid.
4.15.1 ASR Port Usage http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch4_asr_enviro_admin.htm#ASRUD193
3. Requires Communication to transport.oracle.com:443
4. ASR can send same SR Creation info to Omnibus via SNMP Trap.
4.16.1 Managing SNMP Trap Destinations for Service Request Notifications:
ASR Manager systems require Oracle Java 7 - JDK 7 (JDK 1.7.0_13) or later JDK 7 updates or Oracle Java 8 (1.8.0_25 or later).
Oracle Linux 5.3 or later. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 or later.
For IPv6, the ASR Manager server needs to be enabled for dual stack IPv6/IPv4
Test from designated ASR Manager server below:
telnet transport.oracle.com 443
1. Set-up firewall rules to allow bi-directional SNMP/UDP traffic to traverse between ASR Assets and the ASR Manager.
2. Ensure that ASR assets can send SNMP telemetry data out on port 162 to the ASR Manager. ( test using OneCommand)
3. Ensure that the ASR Manager can communicate with Service Tags on ASR asset, via http, using port 6481.
4. If your environment requires SNMP v3 to use the Oracle ASR service, you will need to configure both ASR Manager and any ASR Assets. See
Configuring ASR Manager for SNMP v3 and Optional ILOM Setup: SNMP v3 for ASR Assets for more information in Chapter 2.http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch2_asr_manager.htm#CHDBAEEA
5. Verify Telemetry on each component valid for ASR monitoring -http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch1_asr_overview.htm#CEGFGDBG
6. Verify MOS account: MOS accont and SupportIdentifier How To Manage and Approve Pending ASR Assets In My Oracle Support (Doc ID 1329200.1):
7. Install ASR Manager - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/doc.41/e26747/toc.htm
Install ASR Manager -
Register ASR with Oracle Support:
asr> test_connection ( /opt/asrmanager/bin/asr test_connection)
service asrm stop
tar -cvf db.tar.bz /var/opt/asrmanager/db
tar -cvf configuration.tar.bz /var/opt/asrmanager/configuration
service asrm start
asr> send_deactivations -a
asr> send_activations -a
asr> disable_asr_manager <1 48="" hours="" to="">
asr> disable_asset -i IP_address
asr> enable_asset -i IP_address
asr> send_test -i IP_address
asr> send_test -h host name
asr> deactivate_asset -i IP_address
rpm -e asrmanager;rm -rf /var/opt/asrmanager/
asr> set_property snmp.receiver.port 1162
asr> get_property snmp.receiver.port
service asrm restart
8. Configure ASR Assets - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/doc.41/e23333/toc.htm
Activate Exadata Assets.--http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch3_asr_assets.htm#BEIDCBAI
Check the Service Tag: http://asr_system_hostname:6481/stv1/agent/
9. Pre-check Engineered Systems ASR Configuration Check via ASREXACHK (Doc ID 1450112.1) to verify the ASR deployment.
10. Approve ASR assets refer
How To Manage and Approve Pending ASR Assets In My Oracle Support (Doc ID 1329200.1)
11. Audit log at /var/opt/asrmanager/log/auditlog
12. Check ASR Email
13. Create Test Alert - ILOM - Refer http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch4_asr_enviro_admin.htm#ASRUD171
14. Check Ports: -4.15.1 ASR Port Usage
15. Configure ASR to send SNMP traps to Command center: 4.16.1 Managing SNMP Trap Destinations for Service Request Notifications:
asr> set_notification_trap [-i ipAddress -p port -c community] [-h hostname -p port -c community]
asr> set_notification_trap -i 127.0.0.1 -p 162 -c public
asr> delete_notification_trap -i 127.0.0.1
asr> send_test [-i ipAddress] [-h hostname]
