I want to pull in data from an Oracle database via db connect. I'm looking for some general guidance. I want to pull in data as near real-time. The data gets written to Oracle in 5-minute cycles. I was thinking about using the tail method.
The data is performance data from a 3rd party. It includes a time column (epoch time?), a system name, and a virtual machine name. The timestamp will be the same for each system, since the data is being collected at 5 minute intervals.
How do I:
1) map the host
2) separate the events since a whole bunch will have the same timestamp
In general, is there anything that I should be aware of using the tail command? I'm going to be pulling data from about 8 different tables.
Hi. There is an example of the DB Connect configuration and use of the tail command in the white paper "Real-Time Oracle 11g Log File Analysis" available at http://pmdba.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/real-time-oracle-11g-log-file-analysis.pdf. Hopefully this will help. A lot of other data input methods are also described.
