Foglight for Oracle (Cartridge) 5.9.3.10 - Deployment Guide

Deployment pre-requisites

Welcome to the Foglight for Databases Deployment Guide. This guide provides the pre-requisites for optimal deployment, to ensure the best user experience possible.

This section describes important deployment information required to monitor the leading RDBMS: Oracle®, SQL Server®, Sybase®, and DB2 for LUW. The information in this guide applies to all 5.7.5.x and 5.9.3.10 releases.

Architecture

There are three main components:

Foglight Management Server and Foglight Database Repository — Responsible for managing, alerting and viewing the collected data. Both components can be set to run on the same machine or reside on separate machines.
Agent Manager — Hosts the monitoring database agents.
SQL PI Repository — An embedded repository which stores the SQL PI data that the monitoring agents collect. Currently available on Oracle and SQL Server monitoring only.

Hardware requirements

Identify your hardware requirements, which are determined by whether SQL PI is configured and by the number of monitoring agents.

SQL PI configured

SQL PI is available only for Oracle, SQL Server and SQL Server BI (Analysis services). These tables define the Hardware requirements for each server based on the number of monitoring agents

After locating your hardware requirements in the tables, ensure that you complete the manual JVM Setting configuration as described in:
