Many organizations are moving toward complex data centers that incorporate
virtualization technology and disparate operating system, hardware, and storage
device assets. System administrators are looking for effective methods for managing
data center complexities, solving the major challenges that they face, reducing costs,
and saving time. System management challenges include streamlining operations to
control operation and maintenance costs, deploying new assets efficiently, responding
quickly to changes in resources and reducing downtime. Oracle Enterprise Manager
Cloud Control and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center address these challenges.
This document provides an overview of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
software and explains its design. The following topics are covered in this document:

About Oracle Enterprise Manager
Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
are complementary technologies that provide an enterprise-level data center
management solution for all levels, from applications to storage disks. Each product
monitors managed assets, or targets, but in different sections of the data center asset
stack. Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control manages applications, middleware,
and databases, while Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center manages operating
systems, virtual machines, servers, storage resources, and network resources. Together,
they deliver a complete solution for data center infrastructure management. Figure 1–1
shows the three dimensional managed asset stack for Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops
Center.
Introduction 1-1
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Solution
Figure 1–1 Managed Asset Stack
Install and configure the applications to work together, or use each application
individually. This document focuses solely on the features and functionality of the
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Solution
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is Oracle's comprehensive system management
solution for managing the physical and virtual operating systems, servers, and storage
devices in your data center. You use the discovery and management features to add
your data center’s assets to the set of managed assets in Oracle Enterprise Manager
Ops Center. You can provision, update (patch), monitor, and manage the physical and
virtual managed assets in multiple data centers from a single console, regardless of
where the asset is located.
Figure 1–2 focuses on the assets managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
1-2 Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide
Architecture of the Solution
Figure 1–2
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Solution
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is included in the Oracle Premier Support for
Systems, Oracle Premier Support for Operating Systems, and Oracle Premier and Basic
Support for Oracle Linux, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and Oracle VM Servers for
x86. By owning one of these Oracle Support contracts, you are able to use and get
support for Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Architecture of the Solution
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is designed to provide increased scalability,
high availability and optimized performance in large, distributed data centers. The
architecture is scaled as your organization grows. The Enterprise Controller, Proxy
Controllers, Agent Controllers, and user interface are the major architectural
components. They are supported by the Knowledge Base, which is hosted by Oracle
and accessed through the Internet. This architecture lets you customize your
deployment for the size and network topology of your organization by varying the
placement of the Proxy Controllers and use of Agent Controllers.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center downloads information from the Knowledge
Base and Package Repository to the Enterprise Controller. At least one Proxy
Controller distributes the Enterprise Controller’s work. Secure network connections
between all components transfer control commands and data. For operating systems,
Agent Controllers provide update capabilities, management and monitoring, and
control of virtualization environments. Agent Controllers are required for Oracle
Solaris 9 and 10 and Linux catalogs. Oracle Solaris 9 and Oracle Solaris 10 boot
environment management also requires an agent-managed operating system.
For an asset to be managed, it must be accessible on a network that is associated with a
Proxy Controller. When you discover operating systems, you are given the option to
manage them with or without an agent. Agent managed assets enable you to use
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to monitor, update, and virtualize the assets.
Agent Controllers run in two modes, basic and virtualization management. The basic
Agent Controller provides support for monitoring and updating of the host operating
system. The Virtualization Controller Agent, or VC Agent, supports basic and
Introduction 1-3
Architecture of the Solution
virtualization control for Oracle VM Server systems and Oracle Zones. There are two
types of VC agents: a Zones Virtualization Controller Agent and a Oracle VM Server
Virtualization Controller Agent. The Zones Virtualization Controller Agent manages
the zones running on a global zone and manages zones that are running on the logical
domains. The Oracle VM Server Virtualization Controller Agent manages the logical
domains that are running on the Control Domain.
When an operating system is managed using only a set of credentials, it is considered
agentlessly managed. Some features, such as analytics of your virtual environment, are
not available when the operating system is managed agentlessly.
Figure 1–3 shows the architecture of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Figure 1–3 Architecture of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
Knowledge Base and Package Repository
The Knowledge Base and Oracle Solaris 11 Package Repository store metadata about
Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux operating system components. The metadata includes
patch dependencies, standard patch compatibilities, withdrawn patches, and rules for
download and deployment. The Knowledge Base stores the Oracle Solaris 9 and 10
and Oracle Linux operating system updates and packages.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is configured to connect to Oracle Corporation
sites for updated metadata for operating systems. However, you can configure the
product software without a direct connection to these sites.
Enterprise Controller
The Enterprise Controller is the central server for Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops
Center. All operations, or jobs, are initiated from the Enterprise Controller. The
Enterprise Controller manages firmware and operating system images, plans, profiles,
and policies. The Enterprise Controller relies on a database of asset data and site
customizations. The database is a local embedded database or a remote Oracle
Enterprise Edition database that is accessible on the network to the Enterprise
1-4 Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide
Architecture of the Solution
Controller. Include the Enterprise Controller in an active-standby High Availability
configuration to increase the availability of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
software.
The Enterprise Controller connects to the Internet to get access to contract information,
to create service requests, and to download updates, Oracle Solaris images, and
updates to the product software itself. When an update is requested, the Enterprise
Controller retrieves the software from the Knowledge Base or package repository. This
default mode of operation is called Connected mode.
If your site policy does not permit an Internet connection, you can operate the
software in Disconnected mode. In this mode, you must load and maintain the
Knowledge Base and package repository data and updates in the Enterprise
Controller. For Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux operating systems, Oracle Enterprise
Manager Ops Center provides a script that you run on a system that is connected to
the Internet to retrieve the contents of Oracle’s Knowledge Base and then you upload
the baselines and updates to the Enterprise Controller. For other information, you can
upload the information as local content.
Proxy Controller
Proxy Controllers distribute the operation load and provide fan-out capabilities to
minimize network load. The Proxy Controller can also be used to provide a network
presence behind a firewall or to provide access to a private network. A Proxy
Controller links the managed assets to the Enterprise Controller and performs
operations that must be located close to the managed assets, such as operating system
provisioning. Proxy Controllers perform management operations on assets and reports
the results to the Enterprise Controller. The actions required to manage, provision, and
update assets are handled as a queue of jobs.
You must have at least one Proxy Controller. When you install the Enterprise
Controller, a Proxy Controller is automatically installed on the same system.
Figure 1–4 is a diagram of an Enterprise Controller and co-located Proxy Controller.
Figure 1–4 Co-located Proxy Controller
Although the co-located Enterprise Controller and Proxy Controller deploys a working
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center solution, most sites benefit from using multiple
Proxy Controllers. The preferred method is to install one or more remote Proxy
Controllers on separate machines.
The following are some of the benefits of using remote Proxy Controllers:
■
Enhanced performance and scalability.
■
Some assets are in remote locations and you want to maintain performance.
■
You anticipate creating multiple jobs that will run concurrently.
■
Some assets are behind a firewall and need their own Proxy Controller.
Introduction 1-5
Architecture of the Solution
■
Some assets are on their own subnets and need a Proxy Controller on the same
subnet for operating system provisioning. For provisioning an operating system
like Oracle Solaris 11 SPARC and Oracle Solaris 10 SPARC Solaris Flash Archive
(flar), that uses WAN boot, DHCP is not required. You can provision the operating
system on wide area network or across subnets.
In Figure 1–5, one Proxy Controller is designated for the Management Network and
another Proxy Controller is for the Data Network. The illustration shows how you
associate one Proxy Controller with the managed service processors and associate
another Proxy Controller with the operating systems.
Figure 1–5 Complex Deployment
Agent Controllers
Physical and virtual Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux operating systems require agent
software to perform many functions, such as creating update reports, creating and
using system catalogs, and managing Oracle Solaris 9 and Oracle Solaris 10 boot
environments. Some monitoring and Analytics data also require an agent-managed
operating system. However, you can use many of the monitoring and management
features without installing an Agent Controller on the operating system.
The Agent Controller is a lightweight Java software that identifies the asset and
responds to Proxy Controller. When an operating system is agent-managed, the agent
receives the command from its Proxy Controller, performs the required action, and
notifies the Proxy Controller of the results. When an operating system is agentlessly
managed, the Proxy Controller uses SSH (Secure Shell protocol) to perform tasks and

Architecture of the Solution
to monitor the operating system.You can change the method of managing an operating
system asset.
Hardware management does not require the Agent Controller. Instead, a Proxy
Controller runs commands on the hardware system and reports the results to the
Enterprise Controller.

Overview
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center offers comprehensive system management for
physical and virtual Oracle hardware and heterogeneous operating systems. The
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software is designed to monitor, patch,
provision, virtualize, and support operating systems, virtualization technologies,
Oracle servers, storage, and networks from a single user interface.
Use the discovery feature to add assets to the user interface. The software begins
monitoring the assets when you discover and add them to the UI.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center enables you to easily customize many
management functions. When you add assets, they are also added to pre-defined
groups, such as Servers and Linux Operating Systems. You can create customized
groups and rules that place newly discovered assets in these groups. These groups
enable you to apply changes or create reports to multiple assets at the same time.
Reusable profiles and plans enable you to define the actions, images, and
configurations for tasks, such as installing a server or creating an Oracle VM Server for
SPARC system and guests. You can reuse the profiles and plans to quickly and
consistently perform a task. Specialized plans, called operational plans, enable you to
run your custom scripts as part of a larger plan or as an individual plan. Use
operational plans to apply your customized configuration options or to resolve an
incident.
Key Features and Capabilities
2-1
Asset Monitoring and Incident Management
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software is designed to help you manage and
maintain your datacenter. For details on the features and capabilities described in this
document, other features, and examples, see the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
Feature Reference Guide and other documentation that is located in the Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center documenting library at
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E40871_01/index.htm
Asset Monitoring and Incident Management
Monitoring detects components or attributes of a managed resource of Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center that are not operating within specified parameters.
Monitoring rules and policies define the monitoring parameters and are the main
components of a complete monitoring configuration. Default monitoring policies
contain a set of rules that are automatically applied to managed resources. You can
change the alerting conditions for all assets, or create special rules for a group of assets
that are more critical for your day-to-day operations.
The software uses a help desk approach to manage the incidents in your data center.
All open incidents appear in the Message Center. New alerts update an open incident.
You can assign incidents to others for resolution, add comments, provide a list of
possible causes and impacts, provide recommendations, add utilities or scripts to
resolve an issue, and view progress. You can build an Incident Knowledge Base that
contains your annotations from specific incidents, or add suggested fixes or automated
fixes for a specific type of incident. You can create an Incident knowledge base to store
recommended solutions or to add annotations that run scripts to resolve commonly
known incidents.
Incident Reports enable you to view a summary of all alerts and incidents for a
specified category, such as alarm state, alarm owner, asset type, date range, severity
levels, and affected asset groups. The reports also include an audit trail for
state-change annotations, alert annotations, suggested-fix annotations, comment
annotations, operation annotations. The Reports chapter in the Oracle Enterprise
Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide defines all of the available reports, and how
to create report templates and reports.
When you cannot resolve an incident, you can use the information in the asset’s
summary and dashboard pages to quickly file a service request. Instead of manually
filing a service request, you can enable the Auto Service Request (ASR) feature to
automatically open a service request for a critical incident. The software populates the
service request with the asset details, the Customer Service Identifier (CSI) associated
with the asset, and adds an annotation to the incident to indicate the status of the ASR
creation. Once they are created, ASRs are identical to other service requests and can be
viewed and managed using the same processes and tools. You can view auto service
requests in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center UI or with the traditional
service request processes and tools.
Server and Hardware Management
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center facilitates complete management for supported
Oracle servers and hardware, including the new generation of Oracle servers.
You can install and update system component firmware for a variety of service
processors for a single system, or a group of systems.
Monitor the hardware status, view system details, service processor connectivity
details, incidents, service requests, jobs and other details. Enter your energy expenses
2-2 Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide
Operating Systems Management
to begin tracking energy utilization for ILOM x64, ILOM CMT, M-Series servers,
chassis and the power budget of ILOM 3.0 systems.
Use the Firmware Report to maintain consistent firmware versions across your
managed hardware. The Firmware Report feature compares the firmware images
specified in a firmware profile to the firmware images installed on your hardware. Use
the System Information Report to obtain the information on assets such as operating
system, server, chassis, logical domains, global zone, non-global zone, and M-Series
server. See the Reports chapter in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature
Reference Guide for more about firmware and system reports.
Operating Systems Management
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center facilitates lifecycle management for your
Oracle Solaris and Linux operating systems, including installing, updating (patching),
upgrading, and monitoring your Oracle Solaris and Linux operating systems.
Use the software libraries, profiles, and plans in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops
Center to consistently provision, update, or upgrade a specific operating system
release or package with your defined configuration on a discovered and managed
hardware asset. Details for software libraries, profiles, and plans are in the Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide.
Install and Provision Operating Systems
You create reusable OS Provisioning and OS Configuration profiles to define how to
install the software. The OS Provisioning profiles define the OS image or package and
basic OS configuration and boot network information. The OS Configuration profiles
define the networking configuration, including advanced networking configurations
for Oracle Solaris. You can mix and match compatible OS Provisioning and OS
Configuration profiles in OS Provisioning Deployment Plans. A plan defines the
profiles to use and the targets to provision. When you apply a plan, you provide a
specific IP address and have the option to make changes to the network and interface
for the target. You can apply the plan immediately, or schedule the plan to provision
the operating system during off-peak times without your intervention.
Update and Upgrade Operating Systems
Similar to OS provisioning, the software uses OS Update profiles and plans to
standardize how you perform updates and upgrades. You use Update Profiles and
deployment plans to define which components or packages to install and the level of
automation during the installation. You can simulate an update job, update an
operating system immediately, or schedule the update job to run later.
A variety of OS reports enable you to easily maintain your supported operating
systems, determine if an asset has the latest updates and packages and to apply
updates to a group of assets. Use the Reports feature to check for security advisories.
For example, the Common Vulnerability and Exposure (CVE) report identifies systems
that might have security vulnerabilities.
Monitor Operating Systems
Monitor operating system status, view operating system details, utilization (such as
CPU, memory, and network utilization), associated zones, incidents, storage and
Oracle Solaris boot environments. Use the OS Analytics feature to track, evaluate, and
improve the performance of supported operating systems and zones. The charts,
reports, and utilization data provide details of an individual operating system or zone.
Key Features and Capabilities
2-3
Network Management
Network Management
Networks are the discovered and managed IP subnets. Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops
Center manages network resources, from the physical to the virtual. Fabrics provide
the physical infrastructure and network domains provide the logical infrastructure.
Networks are created from the resources of a network domain. Oracle Enterprise
Manager Ops Center supports Ethernet and InfiniBand network protocols.
After a network is discovered, you can perform the following tasks:
■
Discover and manage switches
■
Add fabric to a network domain
■
Create network domains to support specific purposes.
■
Create public networks and private networks to support virtualization hosts and
virtual datacenters.
Virtualization Management
In Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, you can create and manage the
virtualization hosts that provide the physical resources for creating guests. These
options require access to storage and networks.
The supported virtualization technologies are:
■
Oracle Solaris Zones
■
Oracle VM Server for SPARC
System Information Reports provide information on assets, including logical domains
and zones.
Oracle Solaris Zones
Oracle Solaris Zones enable you to virtualize operating systems on SPARC and x86
platforms. A zone is a virtualized operating system environment created within a
single instance of the Oracle Solaris operating system. Each zone provides an isolated
and secure environment for running software applications.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center provides lifecycle management of zones from a
unified user interface. You can discover and manage existing zones, create zones, view
zone analytics, and perform operations such as booting and shutting down a zone.
You can create server pools for your zones, enabling you to migrate zones between
different operating systems to provide load balancing. You can configure the software
to automatically balance the load, or you can manually balance the load. Beginning
with 12.2.2, you can disable Automatic Recovery at the server pool level or the zone
level. You can also limit the number of attempts to recovery an asset.
Oracle VM Server for SPARC
Oracle VM Server for SPARC is virtualization of SPARC servers. You can create and
manage multiple virtual machine instances simultaneously on a single SPARC
machine. Each virtual machine, or guest, can run a different operating system. To
extend virtualization further, you can create zones on your virtual machines.
With Oracle VM Server for SPARC, you can allocate the various resources of the
system such as memory, CPU threads, and devices, into logical groupings and create
multiple discrete systems. You can either select to allocate the CPU resource to a
logical domain as CPU Threads or whole-core. When you specify to allocate a core to a
2-4 Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature Reference Guide
Virtualization Management
logical domain, all the CPU Threads in the core are allocated to the logical domain.
You can also limit the number of maximum number of whole-core to be allocated to
the domain. You can edit the configuration of the logical domain and switch back and
forth from virtual CPU to whole-core CPU.
You can discover and manage existing Oracle VM Server for SPARC systems, or you
can use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to create logical domains and install
the Oracle Solaris OS on them.
A logical domain is a virtual machine that has its own operating system and identity
within a single SPARC server. You can create, reconfigure, reboot, and destroy a logical
domain independently, without requiring the server to be powered off. You can run a
variety of applications in different logical domains to keep them independent for
performance and security purposes.
You can create logical domains with the following roles: Guest Domains, I/O
Domains, Root Domains, and HA Guest Domains.
■
■
■
■
I/O domains have direct access to physical I/O devices such as PCIe Controller or
Endpoint Devices.
Root domains also have direct access to physical I/O devices such as PCIe Root
Complex.
Guest domains have access to virtual devices, such as virtual disks and virtual
network interfaces.
HA guest domains have access to virtual devices, have at least two network
connections, and have redundant access to virtual disk storage to provide high
availability.
Beginning with 12.2.2, the software detects when a logical domain is in a delayed
reconfiguration state. A message in the center pane is visible to all logical domains
attached to the affected control domain. You can cancel the delayed reconfiguration in
the control domain, or a PCIe root domain (if supported.)
As with hardware and OS management, virtualization management uses profiles and
plans to help you to reduce the complexity of using virtualization technology and
provides a method of consistently creating new virtual hosts.
SR-IOV Enabled Networks
Single Root I/O Virtualization is a PCI-SIG standard specification that enables efficient
use of PCIe devices. A single PCIe card owned by a PCIe root complex is made to
physically appear in multiple domains simultaneously. A virtual machine shares a
single I/O resource also know as physical function. A physical function is a PCIe
device that is SR-IOV enabled and with the appropriate hardware and OS support can
appear as multiple, separate physical devices, each with its own configuration space.
Each physical function can have up to 64000 virtual functions associated with it. You
can directly assign a virtual function to a logical domain.
An SR-IOV enabled network interface has virtual functions created on the physical
function. You can connect to a network using an SR-IOV enabled network interface
and assign the virtual functions to the logical domains. SR-IOV enabled networks are
available from the Control Domain and Root Domain. If you assign a PCIe card to an
I/O domain, then the SR-IOV feature is not enabled.
Key Features and Capabilities
2-5
Storage Management
Storage Management
Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle VM Servers for SPARC, Oracle VM Servers for x86, their
server pools, and virtual datacenters store their metadata and their operational data in
storage libraries.
Use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to create and modify storage libraries and
change the storage capacity. Manage and monitor storage servers and appliances,
discover and provision storage capacity on these appliances, and then make the
storage available to virtual assets through its storage libraries.
■
■
Opaque storage: When Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center discovers a
virtualization host or virtual host that uses storage that is not backed by a
managed asset, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center can identify the virtual
disks used by the host and can share them with other hosts of the same type.
Multipath storage: You can create more than one path from a logical domain to its
storage to ensure that the logical domain continues to operate if one path is not
accessible. Using multiple I/O Domains provides this redundant access.
Cloud Management
Create and manage a virtual datacenter, or vDC. By consolidating your virtualization
servers, storage, and network resources, you can optimize resource utilization.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center provides the platform to consolidate the
physical resources (virtualization servers, storage, and network) in your data center,
enabling you to build and operate your cloud services.
The software provides a comprehensive management solution to deploy, configure,
and manage the virtualization servers, storage resources, and network fabrics. You can
deploy these features as an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud platform service
model in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
The IaaS cloud platform service is available as vDC Management. Virtual Datacenter
or vDC is a collection of server pools that share common storage and network
resources. A cloud administrator sets up the infrastructure and provides access to
cloud users. The cloud users use the allocated resources to create guests and install
operating systems, deploy applications, monitor, and manage the applications. The
cloud user logs into the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center user interface to view
and manage their applications.
A cloud user can perform the following actions to use and manage the allocated
resources in a vDC account:
■
View account quotas and virtual resources
■
Create and manage vServers
■
Create and manage virtual networks
■
Create and manage snapshots
■
Create and manage volumes
■
Create and manage server templates
See the Virtual Datacenters chapter in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Feature
Reference Guide and the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Cloud Infrastructure API
and CLI Reference Guide for details on using the Cloud feature.

■
■
In the global search field, in the upper-right corner of the user interface, you can
search for any Network, Storage Library, or Asset.
In the Navigation pane, you can search for the asset. It highlights the first result in
the asset navigation tree for your selection, and the Dashboard tab of the center
pane displays information about the searched asset. Use the up and down arrows
to view the next matching asset.
In the Navigation pane, select All Assets and click Managed Assets tab to search
all assets or filter by assets type. You can further search for an asset.
In the Jobs pane, you can search for the jobs. Use the search function to filter the
category of information you want to view.
Establishing Your Account Preferences
The software enables you to customize parts of the user interface to meet your
preferences. Your personal preferences override the default preferences that are set for
your role. To change your account preferences, click Setup and then My Preferences in
the upper right corner of the UI.
Sign in and Start Page Preferences enable you to select any section of the Navigation
pane to display as the default view each time you log in. The default is to expand the
Assets section and display All Assets. For the Assets section, you can select a
sub-option of assets, such as Engineered Systems, to display as the default view
instead of All Assets. Another option is to display a section other than Assets, such as
the Message Center or vDC Management, as the default view.
User Interface Preferences enable you to hide some sections from displaying in the
Navigation pane, such as Libraries or Networks. You cannot hide the Assets and
Administration sections. For the Assets section, you have the option to specify that the
assets are always expanded or always collapsed and you can choose which tab to
display as the default tab. For example, you might prefer to have the Summary page
display as the default tab instead of the Dashboard tab. You can set values for Session
Timeout, Console Session Timeout, Connectivity Check Interval, Table Refresh
Frequency, and Job Status Popup Duration for Time Intervals.
Membership Graph Preferences enable you to set the display preferences for the
orientation, icon size, and level of depth for the assets in Membership Graph. This
feature is available beginning with the 12.2.2 release.
Users Preferences Summary displays a summarized history of the preferences that you
have selected in My Preferences. You can view your set preferences for the start page,
display, time intervals, asset default tab, and Membership Graph.

Icons
A
An icon is a small picture or symbol on a user interface (UI) that represents an action
or a state.
Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center has a variety of icons to represent an asset, the
current state of an asset, and actions. A tool tip appears when you place the mouse
over an icon. Tool tips provide brief descriptions of the icons that appear in Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
When an icon is grayed out, it means that the feature is not functional for the current
scenario or you have not been assigned the role to perform the action.
