RE: Statspack consolidation

I'm considering this as well, as I've got 10-12 databases to monitor. Reasons? I'd like all the storage impact on one server instead of across 8 different ones. Not a huge amount, but with all data centralized I can account for it on its own (I plan on using the OEM repository). I also like the idea of running all from one database. Sure, I can log into the others to check info, but it seems to be an unnecessary step. Also, at times I've found that the snapshot job has either died or had other problems not caught, for various reasons, and instead of coming up with another job to monitor statspack snapshot jobs I could do that indirectly by the consolidation job via OEM.

Also, I'm not sold on the multiple schema idea. Almost all tables include DBID, which is unique, so I don't see why all but a handful of tables can't be inserted into off each database. Granted I haven't tested this out yet, but hope to do so soon.

Any flaws with that?
