Oracle GoldenGate – Viewing Status and Events (Process Report)

Oracle Management Pack for Oracle GoldenGate includes:

Oracle GoldenGate Director:

  • Most GGSCI information is also available through Oracle GoldenGate Director Client
  • A subnet can be viewed with Oracle GoldenGate Director Web
  • Oracle GoldenGate Director provides an intuitive, graphical way to monitor the configuration and health of the Oracle GoldenGate network (includes SMTP alert notification.

Oracle GoldenGate Monitor:

  • Provides monitoring only and no configuration
  • Supports SNMP and SMTP notifications

Oracle GoldenGate reports and logs

  • Process reports (shows one group report like Primary Extract, Pump or Replicat)
  • Error log (Application Log, one file for entire instance)
  • Discard file (Any Transactions or Records don’t process properly)
  • System logs (Operating System)

Process Report

Each Extract, Replicat, and Manager has its own report file that shows

  • A banner with startup time
  • Parameters that are in use – in addition to Rating
  • Table and column mapping
  • Database and environmental information – in addition to OS and DB versions
  • Runtime messages and errors – in addition to command execute for this group

The Process report provides initial clues, such as:

  • Invalid or out-of-order parameters
  • Data mapping errors

You can:
* View Process reports using View Report <group> in GGSCI
* Use a single click to view the next or previous historical reports

Process Report Not Created
What if a process abends before generating a report?

  • Run the process from the OS command shell and not from GGSCI (Example: Shell> ./extract paramfile ./dirprm/extctg.prm).  Note that Messages are output to the terminal if ReportFile is not included.
  • Use the StartupValidationDelay Manager parameter. This sets the delay time for the Manager to validate process status.
