Oracle Exadata Monitoring with NetEye

Posted by on Oct 18, 2017 in NetEye | 0 comments


More and more often I’ve needed to integrate an Oracle Exadata system with NetEye Monitoring.  The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is a combined compute and storage system marketed for running Oracle Database software.

The best way to integrate the Oracle Exadata system is to use SNMP Trap alerting.  Then, it depends on your particular Oracle installation whether you are using only the Exadata System or also the Oracle Enterprise Manager.  If you are only using the Exadata system, you can configure your alerts on it and send them via SNMP alerting to NetEye.  If you are also using the Enterprise Manager, you can first configure the alerts on the Oracle Enterprise Manager before configuring SNMP Trap alerting to send the alerts to NetEye.

NetEye as essential component of a Security Operations Centers

During my last projects I noticed that the implementation of a „Security Operations Center“ (in short SOC) is becoming increasingly important, especially for our enterprise customers.

Mainly for big companies that are of public interest like banks, energy providers, assurances etc. the topic of cyber threats is getting more actual and requires special attention. This has been reinforced not at least by the fact that some of these companies already have felt victim to cyber-attacks.

Many companies are planning to introduce a Security Operations Center to prevent and combat cyber threats. (Security Operations Center on Wikipedia) Certainly, such a SOC has to be adapted to the requirements of the company, however, at the same time it has to be flexible enough to face challenges like rapid growth and continuously changing requirements.

The implementation of our Unified Monitoring solution NetEye supports the successful realization of a SOC in the following areas:

In one of my last projects, I had to implement a job scheduler to the IT environment of one of our NetEye customers, whereby a central requirement was that it had to be possible to launch jobs directly from NetEye.

In this article, I would like to underline two main advantages of our open source IT system management solution NetEye, which regard the sending of SMS monitoring notifications.

  • High flexibility for the integration
  • Possibility of sending notifications even in case the monitoring system itself is not responding

However, let’s get one step back: As you know, open source solutions allow the communication with various notification gateways as i.e. SMS gateways, and so does NetEye. Such gateways can be connected over the network or directly to the monitoring appliance. In this context, the open source character of NetEye provides two main advantages:
