Is it possible to create an alert on CA APM related to the alerts of type ORA-5xx for example in the alert.log file of an Oracle Database.
I took a quick look and did not see an immediate answer . But EP Agent and a log scraping script should be able to do this. Did you explore that avenue?
Thank you for your answer,
Any specific documentation to help implementing it?
Thanks for asking
EP Agent - CA Application Performance Management - 10.5 - CA Technologies Documentation
Scripts gather information from a wide variety of sources, such as:
Calling a library function or system utility to check the existence of a critical application, such as a database.
Sample log readers scripts are included which generate metrics
Also see https://docops.ca.com/ca-apm/10-5/en/implementing-agents/ep-agent/epagent-default-plug-ins#EPAgentDefaultPlug-ins-apacheLogReader.pl,weblogicLogReader.pl,andwebsphereLogReader.pl
Is that enough to get you started?
I will ask internally for others to respond on other approaches
thank you very much, i appreciate your help but i can't see an OracleLogReader among that list.
That is correct. These are default scripts that you can use as examples on how to build one for the Oracle alert scripts. One is not supplied out of thebox. Perhaps someone else has done this already. I asked internally for others to respond as well
Thank you very much.
