You're affected if you're using mk_oracle for linux and the oracle version 12.1.0.1 (SE One). The agent plugin may output something like:

,vp.block_size pblock_size, vp.recovery_status precovery_status * ERROR at line 28: ORA-00904: "VP"."RECOVERY_STATUS": invalid identifier <\tt>

Background information:

  • the oracle version 12.1.0.1 (SE One) is missing the recovery_status, see https://docs.oracle.com/database/121/REFRN/GUID-A399F608-36C8-4DF0-9A13-CEE25637653E.htm#fnsrc_d1698612e372
  • this version of oracle shouldn't be used anymore in production as it is EOL
  • for installations which are still using this version, we're now falling back to a supported query
