Database Monitoring Menu is now available for HP UX

Sometime back I had released a useful Unix menu driven database monitoring tool and had made it available for the Linux, Solaris and AIX operating systems.

Here is a link to the original post.

I have got numerous requests to do something similar for the HP UX platform, so here is the new database monitoring menu for HP UX which can be downloaded and installed.

Please follow the instructions carefully and they are basically very simple to adopt.

1) Untar the dbamenu.tar file in a directory where you have the appropriate read/write permissions.

  oracle@inpsit1:/home/oracle/ tar -xvf dbamenu.tar
x dbamenu/dba_assist.sh, 2392 bytes, 5 tape blocks
x dbamenu/dba_main.sh, 2568 bytes, 6 tape blocks
x dbamenu/dbinfo.sh, 1443 bytes, 3 tape blocks
x dbamenu/dbinfo.sql, 2989 bytes, 6 tape blocks
x dbamenu/dbinfo9.sql, 2757 bytes, 6 tape blocks
x dbamenu/dbmon_menu.sh, 49253 bytes, 97 tape blocks
x dbamenu/machine.sh, 1720 bytes, 4 tape blocks
x dbamenu/menu.log, 467 bytes, 1 tape blocks
x dbamenu/monitor_passwd, 8 bytes, 1 tape blocks
x dbamenu/object_menu.sh, 27622 bytes, 54 tape blocks
x dbamenu/ops_dba.sh, 2335 bytes, 5 tape blocks
x dbamenu/opsdba.sh, 2335 bytes, 5 tape blocks
x dbamenu/orahome90.sh, 769 bytes, 2 tape blocks
x dbamenu/security_menu.sh, 25550 bytes, 50 tape blocks
x dbamenu/sga.sh, 1072 bytes, 3 tape blocks
x dbamenu/storage_menu.sh, 18695 bytes, 37 tape blocks
x dbamenu/test_menu.sh, 2691 bytes, 6 tape blocks
x dbamenu/tune_menu.sh, 26707 bytes, 53 tape blocks
x dbamenu/unix_menu.sh, 8783 bytes, 18 tape blocks
x dbamenu/version.log, 318 bytes, 1 tape blocks

2) Note that this needs to be installed on only one machine where SQL*Net is installed where an appropriate tnsnames.ora file is available in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin.

3) Ensure that the PATH includes the directory where scripts are unzipped.

For example:
$ export PATH=.:$PATH

4) Create a database user MONITOR in each database which needs to be monitored. Grant this user appropriate privileges like CONNECT and SELECT ANY DICTIONARY roles.

5) The password for the user MONITOR is contained in the monitor_passwd file. Edit this file to include the correct password. For security, change permissions to 700

6) Ensure that the environment variable ORACLE_HOME is set before launching the menu

7) Launch the menu by running :

./dba_main.sh

Kindly provide feedback if the menu is found to be useful and if there are any issues or problems encountered as well as any suggestions for improvements and enhancements.
