Your understanding is correct. I strongly suggest that you actually do turn off the packs in GC and then review whether or not the product is still useful. You should also be aware that notifications are (outrageously) a chargeable item, so you can't email yourself alerts.

Hello All,

I need a clarification regarding EM Grid Control licensing.

As per my knowledge Grid control is not licensed separately. Licensing is done at the target database/component level. Now I've a requirement to monitor multiple 11g databases using Enterprise Manager Grid Control. We have not purchased any monitoring packs like Diagnostics or Tuning including any specific host management packs. In that case can I still use Grid control for basic monitoring of all these databases. Of course I will not be using any management pack related functionality. Even we are considering to turn off these packs in init.ora.

Could you all please share your advice on this.

Thank you.
