Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do I need to set up on the computer were Serio IT Service View is running?
A: On the computer where Serio IT Service View is running you need to install Oracle client software. You also need to set up a Net Service Name that points to the Oracle Database Server you want to monitor. You can do this using the Net Configuration Assistant or similar software.
When adding the Device for the Oracle Database Server (see 'Using this Plugin' above) set the 'Connect String' Device Property to the Net Service Name you created.
Q: What does the plugin do in the event of detecting an error?
A: When the Plugin detects an error, either connecting to the database, or running one of your SQL Statements, it changes the Device Status of the Oracle Server's Device to Red, and triggers the response 'On Oracle Error'.
It also places a message in the Online Log and the Last Polling message column of Serio IT Service View's display.
