Adobe Flash End-Of-Life and Oracle Enterprise Manager

Adobe announced the End-Of-Life (EOL) for the Flash technology and this is happening December 31, 2020. As a result, most of the popular Web browsers also announced that Flash will be blocked the same day.

I’ve been blogging about this for more than a year now, explaining how this impacts Oracle Enterprise Manager’s (EM) database performance pages.



If you are running EM on versions 13.3.1.0 and below you should upgrade now before browsers can’t display the database performance graphs.

After you upgrade to 13.3.2.0 (13.3 PG) or higher (13.4 is the recommended version), you have to get familiar with the fact that the Top Activity page has been deprecated. I also blogged about this last year.



If you are considering upgrading to Oracle EM 13.4, also consider applying the latest Release Update (RU), at the time of this blog RU8 is the latest one. Take a look at MOS Doc ID 2647078.1.

I recommend you take a look at the November Advisor Webcast for Oracle Enterprise Manager. Kurt from the Product Manager team did a great job explaining this change.
