    Can OEM do a port-probe heartbeat?

    lrp1

      Open question, since I haven't really seen it mentioned in the documents.

      Does OEM (using 12.1.0.2.4 currently) have the ability to probe a port on a host-target to make sure it's responding? the example is:

      pick a host-target (ie. myappserver.private.network.com)

      specify a port or range

      .. and OEM would check it for uptime as a parameter status.

       

      Bonus points: it tracks history and uptime.

       

      I would imagine it is a Metric Extension (aka User-defined Metric in the old parlance) but if someone could point me to a concrete example or advice on how they do it in their environment, that would be appreciated.

       

      The alternative would be to create a simple port-probe bash script to do it.
