    user6042081
      Hi, we are using manual log shipping and applying (scripts) to maintain the DR (physical standby). can I use Data Guard observer to monitor my dr and live and take actions when the primary database is unavailable?

      Thanks and Regards

          No.

          Observer needs a Broker configuration. A Broker configuration is designed for Data Guard. If you are using the EE version of Oracle you could switch to Data Guard and make these pieces work together.

          Observer is a Data Guard Broker Component. You use DGMGRL to manage the observer.
