DBAs, what are your recommended monitoring and management solutions for Oracle, SQL Server, and MariaDB? I use (and like) Enterprise Manager for Oracle, and it’s tempting to try the non-Oracle extensions but (a) cost, and (b) I have little faith in anything Oracle does that isn’t a core product.

@ghost_bird percona have a tool for monitoring that glues open source projects together.

Vividcortex is the best tool money can buy as far as mysql and probably postgres is concerned.
Maybe they monitor oracle too?

@kyzh Looks like it doesn't do Oracle, but thanks for pointing me a Vividcortex anyway. (I'm don't insist on one central solution, but my boss probably will.)

@ghost_bird we could not afford vividcortex but it is really interesting tech.

Here is the tool from percona: percona.com/blog/tag/percona-m

If you are a java shop, you might want to look at Glowroot glowroot.org/features.html

On the off chance that they can help, check honeycomb.io/

(I'm not sure they do what you need tho)

@kyzh Thanks for those - I'll have a look. We're a university and this is mostly going to be looking after database back ends for various third-party systems. We do have some in-house development but I'm more interested in tracking resource issues and rogue processes than managing a dev lifecycle... for now, anyway.
