Ops Center is available today. For those of you who aren't familiar with Ops Center, it's a datacenter management tool that lets you discover physical and virtual assets in your data center, manage and monitor them, provision OSes and firmware, and update OSes.

This update is primarily focused on performance enhancements. Here are some of the key changes:

  • The OC Doctor and GDD are now bundled with the update. The OC Doctor can be used to predict, diagnose, and sometimes fix Ops Center issues, and the GDD gathers data for troubleshooting.
  • Limited IPMP support
  • Job Throttling - this improves job performance when jobs are run on large numbers of targets.
  • Oracle Branding - this shows that we're part of the Oracle Enterprise Manager family, and makes us look snazzier.
  • 64-bit support for Solaris ECs.

If you're using 2.5, you can download and apply the update using these instructions. If you're using Ops Center 2.1, you'll have to upgrade to 2.5 before applying the update.
