You can use Database Control without licensing the packs, but,  as it was 
explained to me, you venture into Packs territory pretty much the minute you 
start to drill down on any of the performance/diagnostic/configuration links, 
so as a practical matter it's difficult to do.  I think the manual on licensing 
gives the details.

Subject: Database Control licensing question

I'm doing my first installs of 10g on Linux.  I fired up the URL for Database 
Control and I get the message below:
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Database Control is designed for managing a 
single database, which can be either a single instance or a cluster database. 
The following premium functionality contained within this release of Enterprise 
Manager 10g Database Control is available only with an Oracle license:
Database Diagnostics Pack 
Database Tuning Pack 
Configuration Management Pack
I've done some search on Oracle's web sites.  I'm not completely clear on what 
they mean here.  I know that the Diagnostic/Tuning/Mangement packs are normally 
licensed separately.  So does this mean that Database Control includes this 
functionality with the Oracle database license, or must I license these items 
separately.  If I must license them separately, then I can't really use 
Database Control without licensing the diagnostic packs.  Correct?
Thank you,
