A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting ethangalstad.me/nagios. Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

When used through default configuration on 10g instances for example, the use of system account with DEFAULT profile configuration on the database runs the script to fail on the ORA specific error, generating an alert through NAGIOS that points to a "Canno´t connect to database" error, and showing the sensor as RED (Critical) because the script never reach the "if" condition.
I just had altered the script to provide a non-existent account on the database, and will ever provide the "ORA-01017" and will satisfy the right condition.
Congrats for the "xnovv" user, it is a good script to start monitoring the oracle instances! Easy to use and good results.

I think I am messing this up because i can´t seen to get this plugin working.Before I put plugins in Nagios3 I test then via command line like this ./check_oracle_instant replacing the words between with the appropriate data to fit my needs.Can anyone tell me if this is the correct syntax?
