OEM 13c Reporting Incorrect Tablespace Space Usage (%) After July 2018 PSU


The topic for today is Tablespace monitoring. OEM 13c started reporting inaccurate values for the Space Usage (%) metric after applying either the April 2018 or the July 2018 Database PSU's. The way this was detected, is that OEM 13c Corrective Actions started firing here and there after the patches.

Oracle confirmed this is tracked on BUG 26198757.
This patch is available on top of both the April 2018 and the October 2018 PSU's but is not available for October 2018 PSU. The issue could also manifest itself as huge wait times on "Sync ASM rebalance" event.

Looks like the issue is corrected after applying the patch on top of July 2018 PSU. Below are some MOS realted to this.
