You hit the point

*I also admit that I think the risk of non-compliance in EM is
unfortunately another reason to look elsewhere for an Oracle monitoring
solution.*

That is in our 99% customer management's mind and that is why I am looking
something else as well. In fact the last 3, 4 customer I have been in this
last year preferred third party tool to monitor Oracle Databases.

Thanks

IIRC, the OP posted they were licensed with the T+G Packs, which according

would include the MGMT$METRIC_% views that could be used for reporting,
custom or otherwise.

I have to admit I did not know that.  Thankfully, we also have all
databases licensed for the T+G Packs.  I also admit that I think the risk
