The DBMCLI utility is the command-line administration tool for configuring database servers, and managing server environment. Like cellcli, DBMCLI also runs on each compute server to enable you to configure an individual database server. The DBMCLI can be used to start and stop the server, to manage server configuration information, and to enable or disable servers. The utility is preconfigured when Oracle Exadata Database Machine is shipped.
Note : If you have enabled Capacity on Demand (CoD) during Exadata implementation, using this utility you can increase the CPU count on demand.
To invoke/start the utility on the $ prompt, just execute dbmcli command
$ dbmcli [port_number] [-n] [-m] [-xml] [-v | -vv | -vvv] [-x] [-e command]
With dbmcli utility, you can retireve the server configuration details, metric information and configure SMTP server details, start / stop the server etc.
