The goal of this openlab summer student project was to standardize the service notification and alarming system in the IT Database group. For this we need to integrate the IT General Notification Infrastructure (GNI) into some of our database services, like for instance, RACMon, Enterprise Manager, Syscontrol, RMAN, Database on Demand, and Storage Administrators' tools. The objective was to make the GNI service our only mechanism to generate notifications and alarms (SMS, email, SNOW tickets) and as unique interface to visualize notifications.
The IT Database group has independent monitoring tools/data and is immersed in a process of consolidating its monitoring infrastructure. The aim of this document is to provide insight into the way we achieved integration of GNI into our database services.
