EM 12c: Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control Sends False Alerts for Server Generated Alerts after Disabling the Metric Group or Individual Metric. (Doc ID 1560526.1)

Last updated on JUNE 29, 2017

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version 12.1.0.1.0 to 12.1.0.3.0 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Enterprise Manger (EM) 12c Cloud Control sends alerts for Server Generated alerts as part of its monitoring function.
However, after disabling a metric group or individual metric, EM 12c continues to send alerts for server generated alerts for the disabled metric.

For example:

If the Throughput metric group has been disabled with some previously set values for the metric, EM 12c will still send emails with this type of content:
