Scanning of Logged Alerts by the Server Fault Monitor

The Oracle software logs alerts in an alert log file. The absolute path of this file is specified by the alert_log_file extension property of the SUNW.scalable_rac_server resource. The server fault monitor scans the alert log file for new alerts at the following times:

If an action is defined for a logged alert that the server fault monitor detects, the server fault monitor performs the action in response to the alert.

Preset actions for logged alerts are listed in Table B–2. To change the action that the server fault monitor performs, customize the server fault monitor as explained in Customizing the Oracle 9i RAC Server Fault Monitor.
