OEM Metrics License Exception for Analysis by Oracle Pre-Sales or Consulting (Doc ID 2771065.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

The purpose of this document is to clarify licensing policies related to querying of views licensed under Oracle Enterprise Manage Diagnostics and Tuning Packs for the purpose of analysis related to activities such as sizing for deployment of Exadata systems, Exadata Cloud@Customer, and Exadata Cloud Service.


 Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control metrics views (MGMT$METRICS) and Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) views (DBA_HIST) are part of the Oracle Enterprise Manager Diagnostics, Tuning and other Enterprise Manager Packs and use of those views normally requires a license for these packs. This document outlines a limited exception to this license requirement when these views are accessed by Oracle personnel including Oracle Sales Consultants, or Oracle Consulting Services.

Oracle pre-sales engineers provide specific scripts for customers to execute on Enterprise Manager Repositories and Automatic Workload Repository (AWR) history views (DBA_HIST). Executing these queries provided by Oracle pre-sales engineers (Sales Consultants) or Oracle Consulting Services personnel is allowed without requiring Diagnostics, Tuning, or other Enterprise Manager Pack licenses.
