Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control Plug-in for BIG-IP LTM Beta

If you’re an OEM user and an F5 customer, we’ve got an updated version of the OEM Grid Control Plug-in for BIG-IP

Oracle on Ulitzer

If you’re an OEM user and an F5 customer, we’ve got an updated version of the OEM Grid Control Plug-in for BIG-IP in beta testing right now. It’s been in limited beta for a while, but we wanted to make certain that both TMOS 9.x and 10.x were supported before we talked about it publicly.

The plug-in, jointly developed by F5 and Oracle, allows you to monitor your BIG-IP like any other infrastructure in the Oracle Enterprise Manager, and if you’re part of the beta program, you can download the source to see how the developers did it too! No, I wasn’t on the dev team for this one, there just aren’t enough hours in the day for me to play with all the toys. Though large pieces of it are based upon my Java Wrappers for iControl, so I can claim a little bit of the fun ;-).

If you’re interested, head on out to the Oracle forum here on DevCentral, and post a note that you’re interested. That’ll get the ball rolling to get you access to the beta and the source.

From a post in the forum by Ron Carovano, here’s some info on what exactly you get.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control System Monitoring Plug-in for F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager

Description
The System Monitoring Plug-in for F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager extends Oracle Enterprise Manager Grid Control to add support for managing the F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager. By deploying the plug-in in your Grid Control environment, you gain the following management features:

  • Monitor the F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager.
  • Gather configuration data and track configuration changes for the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager.
  • Raise alerts and violations based on thresholds set on monitoring and configuration data.
  • Provide rich out-of-box reports for the user interface based on the gathered data.
  • Support monitoring by a remote Agent.
  • So if you use OEM and BIG-IP LTM, check it out. We are comfortable that we have enough beta members at this point, but wanted to give you all a chance to poke at it if you’re interested.

    Until next time,

    Don.
