How to Install OSWatcher

WinSCP the osw file to server in the $ORACLE_BASE directory

>cd $ORACLE_BASE
> tar xvf osw212.tar
> cd osw
> vi private.net

Comment out all the examples bar the linux example and replace with list of nodes in cluster with _priv at the end, so:

To get a list of nodes type: olsnodes

In private.net:

######################################################################
#Linux Example
######################################################################

echo "zzz ***"`date`
traceroute -r -F -m1 nodename_priv
traceroute -r -F -m1 nodename_priv

Finally:

nohup ./startOSW.sh 30 48 &

This will start OSW and run every 30 seconds and keep logs for 48 hours.

cd into archive and check all the logs to ensure it is working as expected, in particular oswprvtnet folder and see if all the nodes are getting traceroute over the interconnect:

zzz ***Thu Apr 30 12:54:13 BST 2009
traceroute to Inodename_priv (10.0.0.1), 1 hops max, 46 byte packets
1  * * *

traceroute to nodename_priv (10.0.0.3), 1 hops max, 46 byte packets
1  * * *
