Microsoft announced the Operations Management Suite (OMS) at Microsoft Ignite 2015. It is the former Azure service Operational Insights with more features and capabilities. To quote Daniel Neumann: “Any cloud, any OS and any stack! You can combine all your cloud technologies in one service and it does not matter what technology you are using.”

OMS extends System Center investments and helps simplify management of datacenter assets. This means that you are able to monitor any instance in any cloud, including your datacenter, Azure, AWS, Windows Server, Linux, VMware, and OpenStack. OMS leverages a cloud-first approach to managing enterprise environments to meet new business challenges and accommodate new workloads, applications and cloud environments.

At OpsLogix we have been helping System Center customers maximizing their investments since the birth of the System Center suite. By making it possible to monitor Oracle environments (through the OpsLogix Oracle Management Pack) System Center customers are able to leverage their current investments and monitor disjointed technologies. Now that OMS is a reality, OpsLogix has embraced this new technology in a very early stage and natively supports OMS, both for alerting and performance metrics. It supports Oracle 10g up to version 12c, and has support for Oracle RAC.

By using search queries in OMS, we can view Oracle performance metrics such as database size as shown in the screenshot below:

By using search queries in OMS, the Oracle alerts (from the Oracle alert.log) can be queried:
