Hi,

  I will like to know what Oracle version are able to be manage and monitored using the Grid Control 11g / 12c   application.

  There are some Oracle 8/8i databases that need to be managed using those tools, and i want to find some documentation that says which version are supported.

Regards,

  Joe Echavarria.

As for EM 10g there should be no problem at all, so I suppose 11g and 12c should be able to handle them, too.

A couple of things:
1) I would not call OEM an application since it is a monitoring framework. I have  monitored Oracle version 10, 11 and 12. Be aware, that the availability of information will vary depending on the version you are monitoring.

I doubt you'll find an Agent that will monitor an 8i database and talk back to Grid Control 11g but I've been wrong before.

To find out for sure log into Oracle Support and follow the instructions found here:
Understanding Enterprise Manager Certification (Certify) in My Oracle Support (Doc ID 406906.1)

This is basically a step by step guide on locating the information you want please a lot more information that you didn't ask for.

@Joe:
You may want to take a look at some other monitoring tools, too, like Nagios or Zabbix?!

@Randy:

Why that??!! I don't think so! Please explain!

@ Alexander
Prior to 2008, any time the word Oracle was used, everyone in IT automatically understood the conversation was about the database. Now, that Oracle has one of the widest IT portfolio offering, it represents something much more.
When talking about  "Applications",  People are referring to applications like EBS, JD Edwards, or 100 of business applications that they have bought or developed.  
Looking at Oracle product page they clearly segment Applications and  Enterprise Management in two different categories.

So what?!? Thanks for the "history lesson", but this ain't new to me (us) ;-) Btw: what was your point in writing that??!!
Whatever...
BUT this one had me literally rolling over the floor laughing my *ss off:
Looking at Oracle product page...
So in other words: if Oracle defines "applications" to be like "bla bla whatsoever A" and 2+2=5 then it has to be the truth?!
Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Apart from the fine links posted by Alexander, go and access the Enterprise Manager certification matrix, (follow these steps):

   Log in to My Oracle Support.
   Click the Certifications tab.

    On the Certifications page, in the Certification Search region, from the Product list, select one of the following:

   
   Enterprise Manager Base Platform - OMS, to view the certification for OMS.
   
   Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Agent, to view the certification for Management Agent.

    From the Release list, select 12.1.0.4.0, and click Search.

>>That windows and oracle version are not supported for monitoring.

I believe that was 'suggested' as likely not possible and I feel you discovered this information by using the information found on Oracle Support.

Well, the agent was able to install but always was getting error that says that that version was no supported.  I was not even able to monitor server disk space or anything.

I was not able to findo that information at Oracle Support.

That is different than a generic comment about it not being supported.

>>I was not even able to monitor server disk space or anything

Sort of what I suggested was likely in http:#a40535626

>>I was not able to findo that information at Oracle Support.

You could have come back and asked for assistance if you could not find definitive information.
