pre-offline trigger in VCS
Would like to have the ability to issue a "notification blackout" for Oracle's OEM product, prior to database resources going down. The use of a "pre-offline type trigger" would be very beneficial, as this is needed per DB resource. With OEM11, we used the Application Agent because each service group had an OEM agent that was able to be monitored by VCS. With OEM12c, we are going with one agent per physical host. This approach is possible due to enhancements in OEM12c. Even if we did have an agent for each service group, VCS cannot monitor java-based applications. So, with our new approach, we need to place the service group in blackout (within OEM) prior to it going offline.
