Solved! Go to Solution.
The Oracle Exadata, ExaLogic, Exalytics are appliances. The OS on the later versions is Oracle Linux, so in theory Dynatrace could monitor these appliances on infrastructure only mode, however, you are not allowed to install non-Oracle software on these devices.
VxRail and VxBlock can be monitored through Vsphere as these packaged devices have this prebuilt. Then the VM's can still have the OneAgent deployed.
IBM Power Series (PPCLE) is supported from a OneAgent OS level installation (with supported Linux distros) for physical infrastructure monitoring, it might be worth creating specialised scripts that pipe information to the OneAgent with |dtingest.
Storage arrays like Unity would need a custom extension built to pull metrics from the device, depending on the interfaces available for the device (SNMP, API's, etc.)
