I have been reading all the documtentation from Oracle website trying to find instructional information on how to manage databases in Oracle Grid Control 12c. All the documentation I have read gives either high level overview of what Oracle Grid Control 12c can be used for, installation, and configuration instructions. I have the software installed an configured. I just want to know like how you would you manage the databases within that application. Does anyone know of any documentation outside of Oracle that exists to provide step by step user instructions. Thanks!

There really isn't anything that I know of outside of the docs.

There is the 2 Day DBA that has some important things you should be aware of:

What you need to look out for is really up to you.  Every Database is unique and each one has it's own quirks that you need to look at.

Grid Control is just a GUI.  What you look at as 'important' is up to your specific needs.

At a high level:
Make sure memory is good.
Make sure you have enough disk space.

Then you can look a 'bad' SQL.  The Advisors are pretty good depending on what Packs you have licensed.
