Definitely take a look at Big Brother. We use it a lot; Quite powerful - handles basically everything discussed here.

I was just looking at this Ignite tool and it's not clear from the info on their website - does it also do monitoring and email/pager alerts for things like alert log errors, blocking locks, full tablespaces, etc. or is it just for performance analysis?

Anyone else have recommendations for a good monitoring/alerting tool that does the other things I've mentioned? We're currently using a mix of DB Console, HP OpenView and custom scripts, but it seems like there has to be something better out there - I'm surprised there isn't an opensource alternative - I take that back, just did a search and found there are a few - anyone have experience and comments on these or any others?

Ignite for Oracle.  

We use it and it's a great tool.
