Hi all

While I do the exchange of updates dance with support (18 days and counting) ! Does anyone have Oracle 11.2 databases with physical standby databases monitored with EM and the database plugin?

Our setup is producing a significant number of "events without incidents" in Incident Manager. The events are metric collection error events where the agent tries to collect metrics when the database is not open and runs into ORA-01219 (database not open). Whilst we don't get incidents for these, our standing instructions for operations staff tell them to review all open metric evaluation errors on the basis that we shouldn't get any. When the screens are full of rubbish this makes picking up genuine misconfigurations somewhat challenging. My question then is do other people observe the same behaviour? If you do the out of the box incident management view "Events without incidents" will be full of these errors.
