Idea ID 2698451
- Brief Description
Our idea is to expand the current Oracle Discovery pattern to be able to not only gather the data for ORACLE_HOME, but also have a home for it as well inside the UCMDB. Alongside, getting a attribute field for the data for ORACLE_HOME, we would also like to propose the idea of also gathering the data for the location of alert log files for Oracle as well.
These enhancements benefit use greatly in helping provide the best monitoring of any Oracle Databases that our customers would like to have monitored. This data will be used today for testing monitoring templates which again will be used for the benefit of our customers when we onboard Oracle DBs if they wish to have them monitored. This data will help with finding the location of the oracle software in the Oracle DB, another crucial piece for the monitoring.
- Design Details
For ORACLE_HOME we would like to see this data populate the attribute on the Oracle instance CI itself - Application Installed Path. This would suffice just fine for creating the monitoring templates now. For the future, however, if it can be made into a separate CI class itself and a composition relationship from the Oracle DB Instance to the new ORACLE_HOME CI, this method would be the best says the Oracle DB admin from the Oracle team that is creating these templates. And for the alert log file, if it is possible for this data to be housed in a Log File CI. We have similar Log File CIs for our IIS Discovery and if we could possibly replicate how the data is being stored for an IIS Log File, figured the same could be done for Oracle Log File CIs. The Log File CI would be in a composition relationship from the Oracle instance to the Log File CI.
