Hi All,

I am trying to write a DOS script to verify Oracle instance availability. I've developed the following script, but the requirement is to send an email notification if the instance is down (not available) for more than 10 minutes.

I don't know how to check the time interval in dos, if the instance is not available for more than 10 minutes. Please advice.

Here is the script I created in Dos.

set ORACLE_SID=orcl

rem -- Create SQL Script ---
echo connect sys/syspassword as sysdba; > %0.tmp
echo set echo off feed off pages 0 >> %0.tmp
echo whenever sqlerror exit sql.sqlcode >> %0.tmp
echo select * from global_name; >> %0.tmp
echo exit; >> %0.tmp

rem -- connect to database ---
sqlplus -s /nolog @%0.tmp >NUL:

if {%ERRORLEVEL%} == {0} (
echo Database %ORACLE_SID% is available
) else (
echo Database %ORACLE_SID% is NOT available

)

rem -- Cleanup --
del %0.tmp

Thanks,

You could run the script every 10 minutes, and if the database is down and a certain file does NOT exist, then create the file.

If the database is up and the file exist, then delete that file.

If the database is down and the file exist, send the mail.

Nice one ThomasG. There used to be a word for these kinds of files. I think they call them a SENTINAL file.

Since you are running on windows, and one of your task is to see the "instance availability". Just check the window's service

ex.
C:\>sc query OracleServiceORCL1| find "RUNNING"
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING

I suggest you create a user just for monitoring and not use SYS.
