Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

There are very rare environments, where databases use the same DB_NAME on 1 host. mk_oracle is not able to monitor such environments. This problem has been fixed with this change.

Important Note

When IGNORE_DB_NAME=1 is configured in mk_oracle.cfg the name of discovered checks will change from ORA <Database-Name> <Check> to ORA <Instance-Name> <Check>.

The monitoring of Real Application Clusters or Standby Environments is not possible with this parameter, because the checks don't use name which could be configured as a clustered service.
