Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) provides top-down application management for Oracle technologies including Oracle packaged applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database and Oracle VM. However, it is often critical for an administrator to receive alerts from applications that are not managed by OEM. Many of these applications can be configured to trigger SNMP traps when an alert condition takes place. One can receive these traps within OEM and start monitoring those applications from OEM. Since OEM is optimized for analyzing historical alerts, having the capability to receive and analyze SNMP traps raised by such applications allows one to extend OEM's monitoring and alerting capabilities to these applications and reduce monitoring complexity in the IT environments.
