    EM 12c cloud control licensing

    588514
      Hi all,
      I have some questions about EM 12c licensing.
      Is EM 12c free, as long as it is used to monitor Oracle targets (i.e. Oracle Linux servers and Oracle dbs) without any additional Management Pack?
      Does the use od Metric Extensions require additional licensing?
      thank you.
      I did not find such informations in the docs ( http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/license.121/e24474/toc.htm )
      Regards

          Funny the doc contains everything but the obvious? I dont see it mentioned but I thought it was free with an enterprise edition db purchase. There is no price in the price list, thats always my first clue.

            Did you try looking at the following chapter? What exactly is missing?

              I said I didn't see it .. but 1 sentence in the 10th and final Chapter, that its free.. You would think that should be front and center in the doc about licensing.. HEY USE ME .. ITS FREE!! Yahoo!!

              Thanks for pointing out the line.

                Not all of EM is free, just part of its are. But we will consider moving the chapter upfront.
