Hi Pete,
I answered my own question:

There is even DB2 plugin:

That is a remarkable piece of work. I was wrong and I apologize to the list for the misinformation.
It's as simple as that.
My ignorance is probably a consequence of the fact that Nagios, Zabbix and Cacti have alive and
vibrant open source communities and a huge user base while the most of the links I got when
searching for the OEM 12c are in domain. The only 3rd party plug-in really created by the 3rd party that I found was NetApp SANtricity plug-in. Hardly a huge user base and an open source community, like the ones for the tools above. Good luck with wrestling with the tools above. You'll need it. I have to confess that I have never seen OEM 12c used as an alternative to the tools above, just for the Oracle part of the world.
