D Interpreting Variables of the Public RDBMS MIB

This appendix provides information to help you interpret individual variables in the Oracle implementation of the public RDBMS MIB. Note that this appendix emphasizes Oracle's implementation. For information concerning other implementation alternatives for these variables, refer to MIB itself.

This appendix includes sections covering public RDBMS MIB variables that Oracle implements in the following tables

Note that Oracle does not implement the following tables of the public RDBMS MIB:

Attempts to access any of the variables that Oracle is not implementing results in noSuchName (SNMPv1) or noSuchInstance (SNMPv2) being returned.

rdbmsDbTable

The rdbmsDbTable contains general information on each database installed on the managed node. Any installed database that has been configured for SNMP support, whether or not it is actively opened, is represented by a row in the rdbmsDbTable.

Each entry in the rdbmsDbTable represents a given database installed on the node. Each entry is indexed by rdbmsDbIndex. The current values of the rdbmsDbTable variables are retrieved from a variety of sources on the managed node.

Oracle implements all rdbmsDbTable variables; Table D-1 lists each of them, together with its corresponding object ID.

rdbmsDbInfoTable

The rdbmsDbInfoTable contains additional general information about actively opened database instances on the managed node. If an installed database has been configured for SNMP support but is not actively opened, then attempts to access corresponding instances in this table may result in either noSuchName (SNMPv1), or noSuchInstance (SNMPv2). “Actively opened” is determined by the values of all the rdbmsRelState entries for this database in the rdbmsRelTable.

Each entry in the rdbmsDbInfoTable represents a particular actively opened database instance on the node. Each entry is indexed by rdbmsDbIndex. However, because rdbmsDbTable contains an entry for each database installed on that node, whether or not it is actively open, there may or may not be a one-to-one correspondence between entries in the two tables at any point in time. The current value of the rdbmsDbInfoTable variable are retrieved from a variety of sources on the managed node.

Table D-2 lists each rdbmsDbInfoTable variable that Oracle is implementing, together with its corresponding object ID.

* Variables marked with an asterisk are not supported.

Attempts to access these variables may result in errors.

Note that Oracle is not implementing rdbmsDbInfoLastBackup because Oracle allows individual tablespaces to be backed up; thus, the time of the last full database backup is not meaningful.

Explanation

Displays the units used to measure the size of this database instance, as indicated by the values for rdbmsDbInfoSizeAllocated and rdbmsDbInfoSizeUsed. In the Oracle implementation, the value of rdbmsDbInfoSizeUnits is the least that allows rdbmsDbInfoSizeAllocated to be expressed as a 32-bit integer.

(1) bytes, indicates size measured in bytes; (2) kbytes, indicates units of kilobytes; (3) mbytes, indicates units of megabytes; (4) gbytes, indicates units of gigabytes; or (5) tbytes, indicates units of terabytes. Each of these unit measurements are binary multiples (1K = 1024).

Explanation

Displays the estimated size of this database instance (in rdbmsDbInfoSizeUnits), which is the disk space that has been allocated to it and is no longer available to users on this host. The rdbmsDbInfoSizeAllocated variable does not necessarily indicate the amount of space actually in use for database data; rdbmsDbInfoSizeUsed retrieves this value instead. In the Oracle implementation, the value of this variable is the sum of the BYTES field for the rows of the DBA_DATA_FILES tables.

rdbmsSrvTable

The rdbmsSrvTable contains generic information on each database server installed on the managed node. In the standard Oracle configuration, one server supports one database. Thus, while the content of rdbmsSrvTable essentially mirrors the content of rdbmsDbTable, Oracle has chosen to implement both tables in order to fully adhere to one of the central precepts of the public RDBMS MIB standard. This precept is that a distinction between the database and its server must be made, in order to account for other vendors' architectures.

Any installed database that has been configured for SNMP support, whether or not it is actively opened, is represented by a row in the rdbmsDbTable. Each entry in the rdbmsSrvTable represents a given database server on the node. Each entry is indexed by applIndex. The current value of each rdbmsSrvTable variable is retrieved directly from a variety of sources on the managed node.

Oracle implements all rdbmsSrvTable variables. Table D-3 lists each of them, together with its corresponding object ID.

rdbmsSrvInfoTable

The rdbmsSrvInfoTable contains additional information about each database server instance actively running on the managed node. The visibility of a database server instance in rdbmsSrvInfoTable is determined by the value of the corresponding applOperStatus object for that database server. (For details about applOperStatus, see Appendix E, "Interpreting Implemented Variables of the Network Services MIB") Monitoring these variables is important for tuning server functions such as I/O, access and activity.

Each entry in the rdbmsDbSrvInfoTable represents a given actively opened database server instance on the node. Each entry is indexed by applIndex. The current value of each rdbmsSrvInfoTable variable is retrieved directly from various V$ dynamic performance tables of this database server instance.

Table D-4 lists each of the rdbmsDbInfoTable variables that Oracle is implementing, together with its corresponding object ID.

The total number of times parts of the database files have been marked “dirty” and in need of writing to the disk. This value and rdbmsSrvInfoDiskWrites give some indication of the effect of “write-behind” strategies in reducing the number of disk writes compared to database operations. Because the writes may be done by servers other than those marking the parts of the database files dirty, these values may only be meaningful when aggregated across all servers sharing a common cache.

rdbmsSrvParamTable

The rdbmsSrvParamTable contains configuration parameters for a database server installed on this managed node. This table roughly corresponds to the oraDbConfigTable of the private Oracle Database MIB, covered in Appendix B, "Interpreting Variables of the Oracle Database MIB". If you are developing an Oracle-specific application, you not need to concern yourself with this table; instead, you should focus your attention on oraDbConfigTable, which has been designed for more convenient use.

Each entry in the rdbmsSrvParamTable represents a particular configuration parameter for a database server on the node. Each entry is indexed first by applIndex, then by rdbmsSrvParamName, and finally by rdbmsSrvParamSubIndex; thus, there normally is a one-to-many relationship between a database server and its configuration parameters, and a one-to-many relationship between a configuration parameter and its multiple values. (For details about applIndex, see Appendix E, "Interpreting Implemented Variables of the Network Services MIB") However, in the Oracle implementation, multiple values for a configuration parameter are concatenated into a single entry for that parameter. The current value of each rdbmsSrvInfoTable variable is retrieved directly from a corresponding variable in the INIT.ORA configuration file for this database server.

Entries for a server must be present if the value of the corresponding applOperStatus object is up (1). (See Appendix E, "Interpreting Implemented Variables of the Network Services MIB" for more information on the applOperStatus object.) If an instance of applOperStatus is not up (not 1), then attempts to access corresponding instances in this table may result in either noSuchName (SNMPv1) or noSuchInstance (SNMPv2) being returned by the agent.

Table D-5 lists each rdbmsSrvParamTable variable that Oracle is implementing, together with its corresponding object ID.

The rdbmsRelTable indicates how databases and servers on this managed node are related. In the standard Oracle implementation, one server supports one database; nevertheless, this table has been implemented in order to fully adhere to the public RDBMS MIB standard.

Each entry in the rdbmsDbRelTable represents a mapping between a database server and a database on the node. Each entry is indexed first by rdbmsDbIndex, and then by applIndex; thus, for the standard Oracle configuration of one server per database, these two indexes are the same. (For details on applIndex, see Appendix E, "Interpreting Implemented Variables of the Network Services MIB")
