Title oracle_rman: added detection of INCR0/1 backups
Date Mar 27, 2015
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.7i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

There were problems with the old SQL in mk_oracle for the RMAN check. The result are a lot of false alarms. This issue has been fixed with a new strategy in selecting the data.

A positive side effect is the ability to monitor level 0+1 backups in different checks. It is possible to monitor a weekly level 0 and daily level 1 backup with 2 different checks.

Incompatible change:

This is an incompatible Change when ORA .DB_INCR are used in the past. The checkname has been changed to .DB_INCR_0 and .DB_INCR_1 when level 1 backups are used.

This change requires a modification of existing rules due to change names for the checks.

Please don't forget to rediscover the RMAN checks.

There is a global variable which can be used to switch to the old behavior. Details are documented in the manpage.
