Query DGMGRL silently from observer site


When the observer is “checking” several dataguard configurations, we can use this server to easily make queries on all of them, for instance using:

for db in `ps -ef | grep observer | awk -F '/' '{print $6}' | sort`; do
conn=`sed -n 1p /u00/app/oracle/admin/${db}/observer/fsfo_${db}.conf`
conndb=`echo $conn | cut -d "@" -f2`
dgmgrl -silent ${conn} "show configuration" | grep -E 'Primary'
done;

It does for every observed configuration:

  1. gets the DB name
  2. find the connection string in the config file
  3. connects to DGMGRL in silent more and runs a command
