8.8 Configuring Email Notification Details

Configure Oracle Trace File Analyzer to send an email to the registered email address after an automatic collection completes.

To send emails, configure the system on which Oracle Trace Analyzer is running. You must configure notification with a user email address to enable it to work.

To configure email notification details:

  1. To set the notification email to use for a specific ORACLE_HOME, include the operating system owner in the command:
    tfactl set notificationAddress=os_user:email
    For example:
    tfactl set notificationAddress=oracle:some.body@example.com
  2. To set the notification email to use for any ORACLE_HOME:
    tfactl set notificationAddress=email
    For example:
    tfactl set notificationAddress=another.body@example.com
  3. Configure the SMTP server using tfactl set smtp.

    Set the SMTP parameters when prompted.
