Hi Folks, trying to figure out how much it would cost me to set up OEM to monitor our databases.

Oracle site now seems to give lots of prices so seems easier than before. I just wondered if anyone can tell me if i am on the right track as this is what has been suggested to me.

We are already running Enterprise Edition on a number of servers and would like to manage these through OEM Grid control.

From what i gather i need a database and application server.

Oracle website gives prices for Enterprise Edition of 318 per user for 3 year license (minimum 25 users per processor) That gives 7950 per processor.

Looking on Oracle site for a SUN Sparc server you can get a T5120 for $13K dollars which has a


* 1 x UltraSPARC T2 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor, 32 Threads

What does this mean with regards to processors, is this just 1 processor in relation to oracle license?

Does buying Enterprise Edition cover the Application Server part of OEM or is this a seperate purchase?

We only have about 15 Live instances to monitor through OEM.
Can we have the DB and APP on same server?

Note that i am just looking for basic functionality of OEM at the moment without adding any packs.

Any advice appreciated.
Cheers
Phil
