We lost a whole install of Precise 7.1 due to a disk crashed which was ASSUMED to be mirrored and low and behold was not. I had to purge all the software directories, Precise users, etc.  

Symantec brought over the brand new 7.5 and we were totally up and running on 7 databases, collecting data, in about 2 hours. 7.5 is supposed to have all the patches.  

So far, so good.

we have veritas i3.

back from when it was precise.

it was decent tool till they released 6.0 and tried the web based rap. it worked out so bad that half of our install base stopped using it.

and once it got bought by veritas the support was horrible during the integration.

i've heard they've fixed all the problems in version 7 i believe. but they lost half of our installs in the process.

        Just saw a demo of Veritas i3. Looks pretty good. Decent end-to-end monitoring (Web server, App Server, Java Server & Database Server).          

        Still evaluating but so far, no huge red flags.         

        Anybody else have any comments?

	oem 10.2 grid control does most of  what you want.

	we just purchase d foglight and quest central both are excellent
tools to manage monitor and analyze the database
