Overview of OEM management packs
Posted by John Hallas on December 16, 2010
Porus Homi Havewala who produced two of the top ten most downloaded articles on OTN in 2009 has produced an overview of OEM Management Packs
Mostly centred on the Diagnostic and Tuning Packs, which you need to have purchased before you are allowed to use the ASH views, the article briefly covers Configuration Management, Change Management, Data Masking and other management packs.
If you need to get a good overview of the management packs then this article will do for you.
It does not mention a new one that I know is coming out in Mid 2011 – the data subsetting pack (not sure of the actual title) but it will be a pack/toolset to produce cut down referentially complete smaller versions of larger, normally production databases. It is expected that it will be tightly integrated with the Data Masking Pack so that smaller versions of production databases can be used for development and testing purposes with all confidential data masked.
