Distributing the Table Reports via Email

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Now that we see the value of these reports, we can look at how we can easily automate the e-mail distribution of the statistics reports. As we noted, the summary of size and growth statistics are of interest to top MIS management, and we can automate the distribution by sending them e-mail each week showing the total change in database sizes. Here is the report generation script:



# Validate the Oracle database name with
# lookup in /var/opt/oracle/oratab
TEMP=`cat /var/opt/oracle/oratab|grep \^$1:|\
cut -f1 -d':'|wc -l`
tmp=`expr TEMP`     # Convert string to number
if [ $tmp -ne 1 ]
   echo "Your input $1 is not a valid ORACLE_SID."
   exit 99

# Here we must set the environment . . . .
ORACLE_HOME=`cat /var/opt/oracle/oratab|grep $ORACLE_SID:|cut -f2 -d':'`
export PATH
MON=`echo /export/home/oracle/obj_stat`
export MON

sqlplus perfstat/perfstat<<!
spool ${MON}/stats_rpt.lst
spool off;

# Mail the Object Statistics Reports
cat $MON/stats_rpt.lst|mailx -s "Weekly Statistics Summary" \
   donald@remote-Remote DBA.net \
   jim@us.oracle.com \

Note that you will need to make several changes to customize this report for your environment:

1.      The preceding listing uses the Solaris location of the oratab file in /var/opt/oracle. If you are using AIX or HP/UX, you will want to change this to the /etc directory.

2.      Make sure you change the e-mail addresses to match the distribution list at your organization.

3.      Set the $MON UNIX variable to the location of your object statistics scripts.

Here is an example of the UNIX crontab file that you would use to execute this report generation script:

# These are the statspack extension reports for tables & indexes
30 07 1 * * /home/obj_stat/get_object_stats.ksh PRODEDI > /dev/null

Note from the crontab listing that you must pass your ORACLE_SID as an argument to this script. The crontab entry says to run the report at 7:30 a.m. each Monday, and passes the ORACLE_SID name of PRODEDI to the script.

This is an excerpt from "Oracle9i High Performance tuning with STATSPACK" by Oracle Press.

If you like Oracle tuning, you may enjoy the new book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference", over 900 pages of BC's favorite tuning tips & scripts.
