Getting ready your EM12cR5 system with latest Patches for Exadata Management

Tue, 2016-08-23 10:00
As of Aug 2016 these are the latest Patches Needed:

For OMS side:
PSU (12.1.0.5.160719)    Note 2158181.1 Patch 23087400 ( latest PSU)
OMS System side Monthly bundle patch – OMS Patch 23741465 ( jul2016)

For Agent side:
Agent Core System Patch: 23639986
Agent DB 12.1.0.8.0 Discovery Patch: 22135601
Agent DB 12.1.0.8.0 Monitoring Patch: 23517257
Agent FMW 12.1.0.8.0 Discovery:  23217959
Agent FMW 12.1.0.8.0 Monitoring: 23741311

EM for Exadata Plug-in  12.1.0.6.160731
Agent Exadata 12.1.0.6.0 Monitoring: 23639890
Agent Exadata 12.1.0.6.0 Discovery:  20844924

Use the EM Patch capability to create a Patch plan and apply these patches (agent side only):



Automating the Agent Side Patching
If you want to automate applying these patches for every new agent and plugin deployment follow this process:
Install the above agent side patches on any one of the agent. Use this as Golden Template and use Clone feature to deploy the further agent. ( Each GoldenTemplate for each platform)
OR
Step 1: Copy the Agent Sytem Patch to: $OMS_HOME/install/oneoffs/<agentversion>/<platform>
For Example:
cd /u01/app/oracle/middleware/oms/install/oneoffs/12.1.0.5.0/Generic
ls -ltr
total 19987
-rw-r--r-- 1 emuser oinstall 20383932 Aug 23 10:36 p23639986_121050_Generic.zipStep2: Create the custom plugin out of the above any one Golden Agent, to bake the patches in the default plugins:
Database Custom Plugin creation:
emcli create_custom_plugin_update -agent_name="mysystem.com:3872" -plugin_id="oracle.sysman.db" -overwrite
FMW Custom Plugin creation:
emcli create_custom_plugin_update -agent_name="mysystem.com:3872" -plugin_id="oracle.sysman.emas" -overwrite
Exadata Custom Plugin creation:
emcli create_custom_plugin_update -agent_name="mysystem.com:3872" -plugin_id="oracle.sysman.xa" -overwrite
Verify the patches:
emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.db" 
emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.db" -discovery

emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.emas" 
emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.emas" -discovery

emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.emas" 
emcli list_patches_in_custom_plugin_update -plugin="oracle.sysman.xa" -discovery


Now, any new agent deployed from console or emcli, even though you forget to use clone feature will make sure the latest Agent System patches are picked up from default patch locations and plugins deployed will make sure the patches contains for plugins as they are the default plugins now.

* Agent-Side Discovery 12.1.0.8.5: (November 30, 2015) Patch 22135601


Steps Taken:
 
1. We started with GRID Infrastructure PSU APR2016 Patch in the lab cluster 22646084 (12.1.0.2.160419).
During the EM Patch analysis we encountered mismatch between the targets configuration info collected from “EM Repository from agent” with “oplan” tool of OPatch.
Similar Bug(this issue  HAS having smallcase and UPPERcase with EM collection and Oplan collection, customer had uppercase shortname host in /etc/hosts)
BUG 20323468 - Run Configuration Compare fails with - invalid instances monitored by EM  -> BUG 21258331 - CONFIGURATIONCOMPARE SHOULD BE CASE INSENSITIVE REGARDING THE HOSTNAME
In our case we were seeing the discrapancies in targetname with FQDN and shortname


2. We then tried DB PSU 22291127 (12.1.0.2.160419), which failed in the step ‘Target Status Check’ which we determined as concurrency issue- we were able to overcome this by removing additional ClusterDBService and Patch analysis was successful for DB side patch only. We decided to create one more ClusterDBService to test again this DB PSU. If we retry this step one by one on each node we can overcome this concurrency.
Erros:Another datapatch session is currently running.
Waiting for that session to complete before continuing...
Queryable inventory could not determine the current opatch status.
Execute 'select dbms_sqlpatch.verify_queryable_inventory from dual' and/or check the invocation log /ora01/app/oracle/cfgtoollogs/sqlpatch/sqlpatch_54049_2016_06_16_14_37_26/sqlpatch_invocation.log for the complete error.
Prereq check failed, exiting without installing any patches.
Error Codes:ORA-20009: Job Load_opatch_inventory_1execution failedWe have a somewhat workaround, but to fully automate we need fix for:
a. BUG 22204310 - CANNOT INVOKE DATAPATCH -PREREQ IN A CONCURRENT FASHION 
b. Bug 19178275 - fixes concurrent access to QI when multiple DBs access it in a shared OH  - is not backported yet
c. Bug 20879709 - concurrency with dbms_qopatch apis with fixed table implementation  -  is not backported yet




3. We again tried troubleshooting GI PSU, we are able to find the root cause, as 2 of the nodes were referring to wrong Oracle Central Inventory. Where the EM patch analysis was failing during compare configuration step. We fixed this.
The GI PSU Patch plan failed at the last step: In the EMOMS.log related errors as:
2016-06-15 15:46:35,246 [RJob Step 250083] ERROR dpGenerator.MultiPatchProcessor logp.251 - 22646084{, root=/%emd_emstagedir%/p22646084_600000000009300_226_0/oracle, oracle=/%emd_emstagedir%/p22646084_600000000009300_226_0/oracle} 2

oracle.oplan.sdk.oplan.OPlanInternalException: Unsupported Action Type:oracle.opatch.system.automation.jaxb.CommandAction subtype:preRACPatchApplyshell
Error: oracle.opatch.system.automation.jaxb.CommandAction subtype:preRACPatchApplyshell



Analysis:
The first hit you get on this issue is: Bug 21919097 : The Prerequsite Checks Required by OPlan Fails With Unsupported Action Type  - Closed as not a bug due to issue in-à BUG 20950255 - UNABLE TO APPLY APR PSU VIA EM - FAILS AT ANALYSIS AND UNABLE TO PROCEED  -- This is fixed in  EM DB Plugin 12.1.0.8  ---- Which we have already applied

Another, fix which is required for this issue is in Patch:
Patch 21364690: Tracking bug to deliver one-off patch for oplan bugs 20978207 and 20995318 DB Plugin (OMS) 12.1.0.8.0
Action: Fix available at: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/PatchDetail?requestId=19551356&_afrLoop=418222758860502&patchId=21364690&_afrWindowMode=0&_adf.ctrl-state=n3gg18298_1124 – We need to apply this patch




Summary:
We have two issue here:
4. Concurrency issue with “Target Status Check” step – We can check with support whether its related and get fixes for the BUGS: BUG 22204310, Bug 19178275 and 20879709
5. GI PSU failing in last but one step  - “building the prerequisite procedure “ - we applied the fix for 21364690 and it fixed the issue.

Getting MultiPath Failed Status count using EM12c/EM13c Metric Extension

Thu, 2016-06-02 14:06
Requirements:
Customer has requirement to alert if the multipath count goes down from 4.

Command to get the count as privileged User:
multipathd list multipaths status | awk '{print $1"|"$4}'

Once you add this metric Extension as part of your Standard Template, only requirement is to have this executed as Privileged Named Credential  or give access to your normal user say 'oracle' the ability to execute multipathd restricting options in /etc/sudo or put that in a shell script in restricted folder and give access to execute only that shell script.

Oracle DBaaS CookBook using EM12c : MyNotes

Thu, 2016-06-02 10:15

Cloud/Super Administrator Tasks (EM CLOUD ADMIN Role)



Step 1: Decide with Architects and Cloud decision makers about the Service Catalog offerings


Business Catalog->Technical Catalog -> Service Catalog ( May be Subset of Technical Catalog)



A company can provide the Bronze and Silver tier in the self-service model but choose to deploy the Gold and Platinum tiers using native Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c capabilities.
Platinum Tier, should be implemented in its own reference architecture. In some cases, companies elect to provision these tiers using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c native capabilities, as opposed to self-service




Step 2: Configure Software Library

Step 3: Deploy the necessary plug-ins. See Section 3.2, "Deploying the Required Plug-ins"


Step 4: Install the Management Agent on unmanaged hosts
so that they can be monitored by Enterprise Manager. See Section 11.2.1, "Adding Hosts".


Step 5: Configure Privilege Delegation for Database Servers Setup > Security > Privilege Delegation Configuring Privilege Delegation Settings


Step 6: Define Named Credentials Setup > Security > Named Credentials. Defining Roles and Assigning Users
In a DBaaS implementation the configuration of the named and preferred credentials is critical. In larger implementations of DBaaS, the preferred credentials are vital especially when using automation using emcli or when using the cloud framework in conjunction to the lifecycle management pack.


Step 7: Creating Cloud Users and Roles Setup > Security > Roles.
Quotas are assigned at the role level and users should be assigned to the roles based on the desired limits.
                 MYPROJECT_SSA_DB_DEV_USER_ROLE [ EM_SSA_USER is assigned to this role, also EM_USER and Public ]
               MYPROJECT_SSA_DB_PROD_USER_ROLE

Note: EM_CLOUD_ADMINISTRATOR(SYSMAN), EM_SSA_ADMINISTRATOR (SYSMAN), and EM_SSA_USER roles must have been created https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E63000_01/EMCLO/cloud_paas_setup.htm#EMCLO323>


Step 8: Create Self Service Portal Users Setup >Security >Administrators.
    MYPROJECT_CLOUD_USER as an example user or assign MYPROJECT_SSA_USER_ROLE to all MYPROJECT_DBA_USERS AD Group.


Step 9: Defining Databases Zones Setup > Cloud > PaaS Infrastructure Zones http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/doc.121/e28814/cloud_paas_setup.htm#CHDBIBGB
Define and create zones to satisfy the Reference Architecture Design.
              1. DataCenter- A - Primary [ MYPROJECT_PaaS_DBZone_Primary_A ]
              2. DataCenter -B - Standby [ MYPROJECT_PaaS_DBZone_STandBy_B ]
Can be based on Geography (East/West),Lifecycle(Prod/Dev) or Functional ( ERP, DB, Siebel etc)
Placement Policy is maximum constraint for CPU and Memory on these Hosts
Refer: Adding Hosts  and  Creating a PaaS Infrastructure Zone


DBaaS Administrator Tasks (EM_SSA_ADMIN)


Step 10: Define Database Sizes: [ Only emcli option ]
emcli create_database_size -name=Small -description="Small size database" -attributes="cpu:2;storage:2;memory:1;processes:350"
emcli create_database_size -name=Medium -description="Medium size database" -attributes="cpu:3;storage:3;memory:1;processes:500"
emcli create_database_size -name=Large -description="Large size database" -attributes="cpu:4;storage:4;memory:2;processes:700"


Step 11: Defining Database Pools Setup >Cloud > Database and select "Database Pools"
a) Database pool name (select a distinct name that describes purpose of the pool in this example: DataCenter-A Linux64-11202-SI,
b) Provide Global credentials for an Oracle named credential. In this case, the grid and root credentials are optional,
c) Select the Hosts and database homes that will define the pool,
d) Select the PaaS Infrastructure Zone, Platform, database configuration and database version to be installed in the pool.




Step 12: Request Settings Setup >Cloud > Database and select "Request Settings" ( All settings at self service level)
• The amount of time in advance the self service user can schedule a request.
• The maximum amount of time for which a self service user can retain the instance.
• The amount of time after the completed self service create requests will be purged from the repository.


Step 13: Quotas Setup >Cloud > Database and select "Quotas" ( all settings at Role Level)
Using the Quota, the cloud administrator is able to assign to roles the following:
1. The amount of memory all the users assigned to the roles can consume.
2. The amount of storage all the users assigned to the roles can consume.
3. The number of databases all the users assigned to the roles can request.
4. The number of schema requests all the users assigned to the roles can request.
5. The number of Pluggable database requests all the users assigned to the roles can request.


Step 14: Defining Service Templates for Self Service Provisioning Setup >Cloud > Database and select "Profiles and Service Templates"





NOTE: Provide as much as details in description this is what SSA_USERS see when they request
Cloud DBaaS User Tasks [EM_SSA_USER is assigned to this role, also EM_USER and Public]


Step 15: Using Self Service Portal Enterprise > Cloud > Self-Service Portal or If the user has only SSA then when he logins he gets SSA Portal only not the normal view

What is Oracle Cloud Management Pack in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control?

Wed, 2016-05-04 10:28
Cloud Management pack basically consists of these features:
These packs are basically used to setup your private in-house Cloud Services ( MWaaS, DBaaS, IaaS, PaaS, SCHaaS, SnapClone etc…)
Without these packs we cannot use any self-service provisioning features.
With DBLM you can use Deployment Procedure to create/clone new DB’s but you cannot use self-service portal.
The traditional DB LifeCycle Management provides all the management of DB but there are some exception of features like below:
Note: The ability to create 'new' full clones is licensed under Database Lifecycle Management Pack for Oracle Database, but the additional 'refresh' function requires licensing the Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Database.
clip_image001
clip_image002

Let us discuss a Scenario where Customer may require Hybrid Cloud Management capabilities:
Customer OMS is running on-premise and they have some cloud services subscriptions also.
If they just want to manage their cloud service targets they can use Hybrid Agent to manage making sure they have the traditional license pack for those targets to have single pane of view of all their on-premise traditional targets and Cloud targets.
They can also use the REST API to manage and view their cloud services which comes with cloud service offerings.
If the customer is not going to build any in-house private cloud service ( MWaaS, DBaaS, IaaS, PaaS, SCHaaS, SnapClone etc…) using OEM, they may not require Cloud Management packs.
Cloud Management pack provides top up features to their traditional packs.
Oracle Cloud Management Pack for Oracle DatabasePrerequisitesThe Oracle Cloud Management Pack for Oracle Database requires the Database Lifecycle Management Pack for Oracle Database.
 
As of now to to raise a request to create an instance of DBCS or JCS  on Oracle Cloud  you have to use REST API or  Cloud UI.
Hope we will soon have integration in OEM cloud management pack capability to raise service request directly against Oracle Cloud Service ( Cloud service hosted at  Oracle Data center or at customer as Private Cloud Service)
which will create an instance in cloud and will discover the assets and manage in OEM .

Timeout Values for Enterprise Manager Components

Tue, 2016-04-19 13:35
Requirements: To have dashboard display continuously without logging in again

There are browser plugins which refreshes the current page automatically for the mentioned frequency. Try this approach first.
I searched “browser plugin to refresh page”



The EM components which affects timeout are:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E63000_01/EMADM/appdx_timeout_settings.htm#EMADM15477
ComponentDescriptionTimeout Value (in minutes)CommandApache timeoutNumber of seconds that an Apache session is kept active.
If Apache timeout is set beyond the operating system TCP timeout, it will cause unpredictable results. The operating system timeout is set to 2 hours by default.5 mins by defaultRun the following command:
$ omsvfy show tcp
Parameters Incoming Value
--------------------
tcp_keepalive_time 7200
tcp_keepalive_intvl 75
tcp_fin_timeout 60
--------------------






OMS timeout or Login timeoutThis is theoracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTimeparameter that can be set per OMS. To prevent unauthorized access to the Cloud Control, Enterprise Manager will automatically log you out of Cloud Control when there is no activity for a predefined period of time. For example, if you leave your browser open and leave your office. This default behavior prevents unauthorized users from using your Enterprise Manager administrator account.
If you make changes to the login timeout value, be sure to consider the security implications of leaving your session open for other than the default timeout period.
Note: The default timeout value does not apply when you restart the Web server or the OMS. In both of those cases, you will be asked to log in to the Cloud Control Console, regardless of the default timeout value.

45 min by defaultRun the following command: emctl set property -name oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime -value time_in_minutes -module emoms
Then, restart OMS for the value to take effect.ADF timeoutThis is controlled by the variableoracle.adf.view.rich.poll.timeout. The variable applies to pages that have auto poll. ADF pages may be enabled with automatic poll. After a page does not receive any keyboard or mouse event for duration oforacle.adf.view.rich.poll.timeoutvariable, then the poll stops. From that point on, the page participates in the standard server-side session timeout.10 minNoneAt my previous project we used these values as per client requirements:
--We are setting to 2700 ---> 45minX60= 2700 Seconds
emctl set property -name oracle.sysman.eml.maxInactiveTime -value 2700
cd /u01/app/mw_12cR3/oms/sysman/archives/emgc/deployments/GCDomain/emgc.ear/em.war/WEB-INF  
<!-- Workaround for Bug 18141467- CONFIGURE PERFORMANCE HOME PAGE TIMEOUT
You need to specify the value in milliseconds. Setting to 40Minuites on OCT-23-2014 :

<context-param>
<param-name>oracle.adf.view.rich.poll.TIMEOUT</param-name>
<param-value>2400000</param-value>
</context-param>

</web-app>
Also make sure the settings at Load Balancer is proper if they are using one.
Note:
  • In case of multiple OMSs, this must be done on all OMSs.
  • If the OMSs are behind a SLB, and if the SLB name is used in the URL provided to login to the EM Console, check the Whitepaper:
    Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control - Configuring OMS High Availability with F5 BIG - IP Local Traffic Manager
    Topic Create the Persistence Profiles - Change the values related to the Console
    The value must be provided there in seconds (So 3600 for a timeout of 60 minutes).

(Current OMS Count + 1) x Processes Parameter Value Per OMS for the Current Deployment Size
SMALL, then the Processes parameter value to be set is computed this way: (1 + 1) x 300 = 600.
PROCESSES = 600
SESSIONS = (1.1 * PROCESSES) + 5
TRANSACTIONS = 1.1 * SESSIONS
alter system set processes = 600 scope = spfile;

Step 1: Setup VMware ESXi 6.0.0

Mon, 2016-04-11 13:04
     
    My intention was to setup a personal EM13c lab using affordable hardware and software but application infrastructure and topology as much as similar to Production grade.
    Technorati Tags: ,
    Dell PowerEdge T20 - Xeon E3-1225 @3.2 Ghz
    28GB RAM, 500GB SSD+1TB HDD
    VMWare ESXi 6.0.0.
    Oracle Linux 7.2 for OMS 13c and Database12c
    F5 LineRate Precision Load Balancer 2.6.1


    1. Get the cheap server you can afford, look for deals at slickdeals.net. I bought a DELL-T20 and additional 500GB SSD and extra RAM.
    2. Enable AMT ( ctrl+P) admin user: http://192.168.1.100:16992/index.htm?
    3. Use Rufus 2.7 to write the ISO image, other tools didn’t work
    4. https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/vcli/
    5. Make sure the machine boots from your ISO disk and install Vmware ESXi

Side by Side comparison: ParalleNew+CMS vs G1GC Java Garbage Collector

Fri, 2016-03-04 17:31
Side by Side comparison: Left ParalleNew+CMS Right:G1GC
Verdict: With minimal intervention ParallelNew+ UseConcMarkSweepGC performs well ahead of G1GC.
Note: This test was done on small Heap size of 90M with JDK 1.7.0.67 using Grinder and AuctionImage test application. This is small heap and application but still we see memory fragmentation with PralleNew+CMS and G1GC seems to work well in this area but performance has to improve.

ASR Summary Cheat sheet for Exadata and Enterprise Manager12c

Wed, 2016-02-17 11:19
What is ASR:

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.
Refer: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E63000_01/EMASR/intro.htm#EMASR108

How to use ASR 


Summary
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:  
      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch4_asr_enviro_admin.htm#ASRUD200

PRe-Requisite
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
/usr/bin/wget https://transport.oracle.com/v1/
https://transport.oracle.com/v1/


transport.oracle.com (141.146.1.169).

STEPS
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
   http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37710_01/install.41/e18475/ch3_asr_assets.htm#BABGCHID

How to get nfs info on 1000 or many hosts using Oracle Enterprise Manager

Fri, 2016-02-05 11:27
There was a requirement to get nfs info on all the hosts.
Here is the way to get it:

Create a OS JOB in EM12c with following text and execute on all interested hosts. Assuming you have common shared mount on all these hosts.
Otherwise you can create Metric Extension to collect this info and query repository using Configuration Manger or directly to get this info.
 echo -e `echo '\n';hostname --l;echo '\n=====================================\n';nfsstat -m;echo '\n=====================================\n';exit 0` >> /nfs_software/nfs_info_PROD.txt

EM12c Agent generating heapDump_*.hprof

Tue, 2015-10-27 14:43
By default Em12c Agent has enabled -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError. We need to change the log directory to other directory or disable the Dump before it fills up Agent partition.
  --  -XX:-HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError   or  -XX:HeapDumpPath=/home/oracle/logs/
 
You can put these entries in AGENT_INST/sysman/config/s_jvm_options.opt
Agent has an auto tuning feature which increases Xmx automatically whenever it goes out of memory and dumps the memory.
We  disabled the Dump by putting this entry   -XX:-HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError     in file  AGENT_INST/sysman/config/s_jvm_options.opt and did emctl stop agent;emctl start agent.
 
Also, if you think if the agent memory auto tuning is not working you can disable that .. if you see a frequent restart or failing to start due to outOfMemory errors.
You can change  in emd.properties
#Enable auto tuning out of the box
enableAutoTuning=true false

Change the default Xmx
# These are the optional Java flags for the agent
#
agentJavaDefines=-Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=96M
Note: This is not recommended by Oracle Dev team.
