Universal Message Format, UMF, Provides an interface for deploying the Remote Management Framework (RMF) for an Oracle Database. The RMF is used for collecting Oracle Database performance statistics.
It provides functions to create and manage UMF topologies. Specifically, it provides calls to create/drop topologies and to modify a topology by adding/removing nodes and links.
It also provides calls to manage services (such as AWR) running on nodes and to view/validate a topology. API calls for a given topology must be executed on the target for that topology. This is an internal package supporting DBMS_UMF.
