I’m not sure that you would be able to install OEM into the RDS db, it probably won’t pass prereq checks, but i’ve not tried it.   I agree with Kellyn that it would probably blow your network bandwidth to run OEM in AWS.  


A better solution would be to run OEM on premises with hybrid agents, or if you’re looking for a SaaS/cloud based monitoring, check out Oracle Management Cloud.  It’s a SaaS service which allows you to monitor on-premises or cloud (including Oracle or Amazon)…


Disclaimer – I work for the product team that develops both OEM and OMC J

++ what Dave said.


We are monitoring our AWS RDS databases using our on-premise 13c Enterprise Manager. 

Amazon provides an "agent" that can talk to Enterprise Manager. 

It's working well.

Just my 2c, but the dara in flight costs could be high. EM is very chatty via the OMR and the target agents...

I'll have to get back to both of you about installing, configuring, etc. OEM within AWS for AWS-based targets.  I know I looked into it but for some reason felt it wasn't worth the effort.

We have a number of RDS targets and I wanted those targets to be monitored as close as possible to that of all our other targets so instead I used the option for AWS to install a management agent and was able to discover those targets back in our inhouse OEMs.  The main thing is being careful with OEM Jobs as any that require the OS-level will fail.

Has anyone here installed OEM 12c or 13c in AWS to monitor oracle database in AWS and on-prem and RDS targets?

would like to get some details, Is Oracle RDS a viable option for the OMR repository?


Hoping to get some guidance from the group.
