Using JVM Diagnostics (JVMD) to help tune production JVMs

Just crossed this interesting post on Oracle’s blog on Enterprise Manager. When you are in to optimizing your JVMs you might want to take a look at it….

Tuning a production JVM involves more than merely adding more RAM to it via the -Xmx parameter. It depends upon an understanding of how your application truly behaves in a production environment. Most JVM tuning is done by developers with a simulated load in their Development or QA environment. This is unlikely to be truly representative of the production load running on production hardware with regards to proper JVM tuning.

Configure BI Publisher and Setup BIP Security

As you might already know, EM12c introduces the ability to create reports using BI Publisher. You should also be aware of the fact that the Information Publisher option (the ‘out of box’ reports that have been in Enterprise Manager since release 10) might not be there in a next major release of EM.

Oracle Learning Library just released an instruction video, showing the configuration of BI Publisher and the BIP Security setup.

Using Administration and Dynamic Groups, Roles and Administrator controlled ‘Solution Groups’ we are able to route Incidents based on our organization structure.

Therefor we are more and more relying on Target Properties like: Lifecycle Phase, Line Of Business, Department etc. When monitoring thousands of Targets, management of these Properties is a huge challenge.
